9780981945408: North from Calcutta

In a gripping story torn from today's headlines, Tarek Durrani, a westernized Pakistani intelligence officer races to stop an attack against India by a Kashmiri terrorist group. A successful attack could mean war between India and Pakistan, with possible nuclear ramifications. Of more immediate concern to Tarek, the attack also will take the life of Sahar, the hypnotically seductive Indian architect, who has cracked the combination to his soul.

From the Back Cover:

"A great tale of today’s espionage and terror... Both 'what it's like' and 'what it could be.'" -- Ambassador Cofer Black, former Chief of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center
"I'd recommend the writers of '24' pick this guy up; he could make for some amazing scripts for season 8!" --T.C. Robson Book Shelf Reviews
"Duane Evans is pioneering a new approach to the genre of espionage, intrigue and adventure novels. His handling of a Muslim hero, a Hindu heroine, in a setting of Islamic extremist activity is superb and destined to be the pacesetter for other writers in this time of explosive terrorist threat." -- Richard Blake, Reader Views
"CIA spymaster pens India-Pakistan thriller" --Chidanand Rajghatta, The TIMES OF INDIA
"Taken from what could be tomorrow's headlines, the author takes us deep into the underside of Pakistan's intelligence services, where nationalism clashes with Islamic fundamentalism, as radical elements plot against India-with nuclear war hanging in the balance. Plot twists, well developed characters, settings that bring you the feel and smell of South Asia, this is a page-turning, exciting ride." -- Gary Schroen, former senior CIA officer and National Best Selling author of "First In"
"Intriguing, action packed page-turner... I hope he writes a sequel!" --K. DeLise "kedrocks"
"Evans may be a talent to watch in the future, a bright light in a crowded and often lusterless espionage lit market." --Kevin L. Nenstiel "omnivore" Amazon TOP 1000 Reviewer
"At once entertaining and informative, North From Calcutta is an elegant example of espionage fiction." --Hayden Peake, Author, Curator for the CIA's Historical Intelligence Collection
"A well-written story that could be out of today’s headlines... the reader will learn much... about the danger that a spy... endures." --Cy Hilterman
"With just the right blend of romance, intrigue, vengeance, and heroism, Evans' freshman debut will appeal to a wide audience." -- Vera A. Pereskokova, www.luxuryreading.com
"The book serves as a primer for South Asian dirty politics – or is ‘dirty politics’ a redundancy? Don’t miss this great read. It’s only a shadow away from today’s headlines... I highly recommend it." --Lou Novacheck
"His plot (and plots within plots) is extremely complex and the politics involved in this story is mind-boggling." --Debra Gaynor, Book Reviews By Debra
"This is a thrilling action tale (with a little romance)... I enjoyed it so much... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend." --Carole Colbert, Caroles Book Blog (UK)
"I really appreciated a terrorist storyline that shows that there are Muslims who do not support Fundamentalist dogma... I loved the authenticity of the book." --Brooke Bonett, The Bluestocking Guide Review
"Duane Evans has used his experience at the CIA to make number of situations "edge of the seat" moments and his knowledge of South Asia-not only the geopolitical scene but also the cultural and religious aspect adds more depth to the story. North from Calcutta is must read if you are looking for a great novel that is engaging, masterfully written with a storyline that is substantive and close to reality." --Bhumika Ghimire, Associated Content, UPI-ASIA
"If you like espionage thrillers and you are looking for a change in venue for spy exploits... or if you liked THE INCREMENT by David Ignatius you will enjoy NORTH FROM CALCUTTA." --Plants and Books
