BITTER LEMON PRESS ACQUIRES TWO NEW NOVELS, SET IN BAGHDAD AND RIO DE JANEIRO by (Bitter Lemon Press 02 April 2013 / ) - Bitter Lemon Press is delighted to announce that it has bought two interesting new novels, both set for publication in Spring 2014. Bitter Lemon titles are distributed to the trade by Consortium Book Sales.

The first, BAGHDAD CENTRAL by Elliott Colla, will be published in February 2014, and is a suspenseful mystery novel set in Baghdad in 2003, just after the “mission accomplished” pronouncements of the Bush regime. The story follows Baghdad police inspector Khafaji who, shortly after Iraq has fallen to the US army, is pressed into service to help rebuild an Iraqi police service decimated by de-Ba’athification. Khafaji investigates the disappearance of young women translators working for the US forces and the trail leads him through battles, bars and brothels, then back to the Green Zone where everything began.
