American By Day

Author: Derek B. Miller Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/04/2018

'A superb novel on all levels' Marcel Berlins, The Times 'Derek B Miller writes the kind of crime fiction the world needs right now. Principled, but not afraid to get down and dirty - and shot through with some of the sharpest humour you're likely to find.' Joseph Knox, bestselling author of Sirens She knew it was a weird place. She'd heard the stories, seen the movies, read the books. But now police Chief Inspector Sigrid Odegard has to leave her native Norway and actually go there; to that land across the Atlantic where her missing brother is implicated in the mysterious death of a prominent African-American academic. America. And not someplace interesting, either: upstate New York. It is election season, 2008, and Sigrid is plunged into a United States where race and identity, politics and promise, reverberate in every aspect of daily life. To find her older brother, she needs the help of the local police who appear to have already made up their minds about the case. Working with - or, if necessary, against - someone actually named Sheriff Irving 'Irv' Wylie, she must negotiate the local political minefields and navigate the back woods of the Adirondacks to uncover the truth before events escalate further. At once a thrilling race-against-time crime story, a personal journey through grief and a meditation on the world in which we live, American By Day once again shows Derek B Miller to be one of the most imaginative, ingenious and entertaining writers working today.

The Girl in Green

The Girl in Green

Author: Derek B. Miller Format: Paperback Release Date: 03/08/2017

Shortlisted for The Gold Dagger 2017, for best crime novel of the year There she is, in a line of refugees in Kurdistan, just before the mortar lands. The girl they failed to save twenty-two years ago. Thomas Benton and Arwood Hobbes watch the video again. It can't be her, can it? But as soon as they ask the question, the journalist and the ex-soldier both know they have to make the journey back to Iraq's shattered landscape and broken heart - they have to know. '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.' Doug Johnstone, Big Issue 'A thriller that combines characters of more than usual sensitivity with the harsh reality of combat and a prescient analysis of the shameful behaviour of governments.' The Times

The Girl in Green

Author: Derek B. Miller Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/07/2016

Derek B. Miller's striking follow up to his much-loved, John Creasey Dagger-winning, Norwegian by Night. The Girl in Green takes us deep into modern Iraq, where British journalist Thomas Benton and relief worker Marta Strom are persuaded by ex-US soldier Arwood Hobbes to embark on what may be a fools' errand in a last-chance effort to atone for their failure to save a local girl more than twenty years previously, following Operation Desert Storm. Set against the shattered landscape and broken heart of Iraq, The Girl in Green is an adventure story told with all the wit, humanity and insight of Miller's acclaimed debut.
