The story is written with tremendous pace and insight and the lyrical satirical edge to the prose owes a debt to the likes of Catch-22 as the ludicrous nature of the situation the characters find themselves in is expertly delineated. There is real heart here too though amongst the black humour. Author: Doug Johnstone Source: Big Issue

Miller dives into the complex and confusing world of the Middle East with a depth of knowledge of the region and the forces at play that is obvious on every page. His writing is direct and powerful - it's impossible to read this without becoming angry and upset but there is humor too and just enough hope . His first book Norwegian By Night was one of my favourite books of 2013 and I think this one's even better. Verdict: heart-thumping thriller. Source: Herald Sun (Australia)
Before publishing Norwegian By Night Derek Miller worked in international affairs for over twenty years. In his new novel he calls upon his wealth of knowledge and experience to give us another emotionally moving thriller that looks at Iraq and the mess The West has made in the Middle East in the last twenty five years. Miller manages to convey all this to the reader in a page-turner that is both funny and sad intelligent and full of hope. This is a must read from a writer of extreme talent and compassion.
