“A compelling combination of literate storytelling and action-packed thriller laced with humor.” — Library Journal (starred review) Finalist for the CWA Gold Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel of the Year 1991: One hundred 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 an 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, peace has been declared, but as they argue about whether it makes sense to cross the nearest border in search of an 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? “Swift, gripping, and mined with surprises…Arwood Hobbes is as intriguing an operative as Graham Greene's quiet American, but without the quiet.”—David Shafer, author of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot “[A] stellar, electrifying story with a knockout ending.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A penetrating, poetic, and unexpectedly disarming book about the ageless conflict in the Middle East.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “A Catch-22 for the twenty-first century.”—Madison Smartt Bell, National Book Award finalist and author of All Souls' Rising
"The magical adventure begun in The Bear and the Nightingale continues as brave Vasya, now a young woman, is forced to choose between marriage or life in a convent and instead flees her home--but soon finds herself called upon to help defend the city of Moscow when it comes under siege"--

Reviews: "The Girl in the Woods is fast and engaging from beginning to end. The aura of mystery, the very human characters, the search and rescue dogs and the Adirondacks, make for a chilling, suspenseful read. Whether you believe in ghosts or spirits or not, there's plenty to wonder about in The Girl in the Woods. I recommend it." Amazon review "I read this book in 3 1/2 hours. Fantastic read. Am going to buy others from this author." Amazon review "This book was fun and fast moving. Ghosts and mystery, premonitions and rescues; it's all here. Fun read." Amazon review "Being a northern New Yorker myself, I plucked this murder mystery off my to-read pile figuring to spend a few spare minutes looking into it, only to find that I couldn't put it down, ending up reading it in one setting, something I almost never do. Ms. Mooers, an Adirondack 46r is a marvelous storyteller, a crafter of mystery plotting whose intricacies will keep you guessing right up to the jaw-dropping ending. If you're ever camping in the Adirondacks, Ms. Mooers is just the yarn spinner you'll want around the midnight campfire." Amazon review "This is the fourth book by this author that I have read. Each book is better than the one before but all are worth reading. This one though, The Girl in the Woods is outstanding. I could NOT put it down. Well written, it is a dancing story, moving quickly to keep a reader enchanted with a good story line, great descriptions of setting, wonderful character development and a good ending. For those of us who live in Upstate New York and have climbed mountains in the Adirondacks, it is a welcome new piece of literature."
