Book Description*WINNER OF THE WRITERS' LEAGUE OF TEXAS FICTION AWARD 2017* It is the spring of 2003 and coalition forces are advancing on Iraq. Images of a giant statue of Saddam Hussein crashing to the ground in Baghdad are being beamed to news channels around the world. Nineteen-year-old Specialist Cassandra Wigheard, on her first deployment since joining the US army two years earlier, is primed for war. For Abu al-Hool, a jihadist since the days of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, war is wearing thin. Two decades of fighting have left him questioning his commitment to the struggle. When Cassandra is taken prisoner by al-Hool's mujahideen brotherhood, both fighters will find their loyalties tested to the very limits.
Editorial ReviewA brilliantly written account of kidnap and conquest in the early years of the Iraq war. -- Justine Jordan * Guardian, Books of the Year * "Clear, authentic and beautifully written, Spoils is a book about war for people who don't like books about war. Van Reet gives us a thriller that is not a thriller, but a grave and fierce description of the moral battlefield behind the headlines from Iraq." -- Anne Enright "Blisteringly good." * Daily Telegraph * "Undeniably engrossing." * Observer * "Brian Van Reet's assured debut novel begins with one of the best opening chapters I've read... bear[s] eye-widening witness to valour, horror, violence, cruelty and absurdity... not only rewarding but necessary." * Guardian *
