Publisher's Summary

It's 1991. Near Checkpoint Zulu, 100 miles from the Kuwaiti border, Thomas Benton meets Arwood Hobbes. Benton is a British journalist who reports from war zones in part to avoid his lackluster marriage and a daughter he loves but cannot connect with; Arwood is a Midwestern American private who might be an insufferable ignoramus or might be a genuine lunatic with a death wish - it's hard to tell. Desert Storm is over, and peace has been declared, but as they argue about whether it makes sense to cross the nearest border in search of ice cream, they become embroiled in a horrific attack in which a young local girl in a green dress is killed as they are trying to protect her. The two men walk away into their respective lives. But something has cracked for them both.
Twenty-two years later, in another place, in another war, they meet again and are offered an unlikely opportunity to redeem themselves when that same girl in green is found alive and in need of salvation. Or is she?

Stay with this book. You will be glad you did.

I was not at all sure that I would like this book when I started it. But I stayed with it and I encourage you to do the same. It is a well-told story with characters who offer us insight into the complexities of modern Iraqi and Middle Eastern life and conflict and how we from the West do our best to help. I am a better man for having read this book.

This is a phenomenal book. This story follows the main characters from 1991 in the first Gulf War through 2013. It begins and ends in Iraq. The middle is filled with some of the best action, funniest dialogue, poetic justice, and philosophical debate available in fiction.

Not only is this story wildly entertaining, it also gives the reader a lot of insight into how soldiers, NGO aid workers, innocent bystanders, and even terrorists think & make decisions.
