Acclaim for Baghdad Solitaire

"Fearless and artful, with a Renaissance painter's eye for detail, Leslie Cockburn regales us with the most provoking political thriller to have come out of the Iraq war and its aftermath. The vices and virtues of humanity in a war-torn, dismantled society practically jump from the pages to immerse us in an unforgettable story. A great read."

Gioconda Belli, author of Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand

"Leslie Cockburn's stunning debut novel, Baghdad Solitaire, is a thriller that resonates with authenticity and truth, a book that could only have been written by one who had actually lived on the razor’s edge of death."

Wade Davis, author of Into the Silence

"Rife with intrigue, corruption and cover-up, Baghdad Solitaire is so utterly believable you'll wonder if the events she describes didn't actually happen. Leslie Cockburn takes us on an unforgettable journey into a modern-day Heart of Darkness. This is suspense of the highest order."

Scott Wallace, author of The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon's Last Uncontacted Tribes

"Leslie Cockburn brings the depth of her own firsthand experience to her beautifully written page-turner about one woman's quest for truth and understanding amid the chaos and devastation of war."

Susanna Styron, producer/director of 9/12: From Chaos to Community
