The Girl in Green takes us deep into heart of Iraq, as British journalist Thomas Benton is persuaded by ex-US soldier Arwood Hobbes, and supported by relief worker Marta Strom, to embark on what may be a fools' errand, as they try to atone for their failure to save a local girl over twenty years previously, after Operation Desert Storm. Timely and telling - 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War and is election year in the U.S. - The Girl in Green explores the troubled landscape of the Middle East, and the West's foreign policy agenda, with all the wit, skill and insight of his acclaimed first novel.
