9781593303778: Stinger

Enter the mysterious world of Stinger... a romantic spy thriller with a twist. When a secret shipment of Stinger missiles goes missing near the Khyber Pass, "rogue" CIA officer Nick Daley becomes entangled in an unusual triangle with a San Francisco journalist and her former lover, now an elusive Afghan leader with a price on his head. These characters lead us into a realm of intrigue and betrayal, where hidden agendas provide their own kind of veil until the truth is revealed in a shocking climax. 

"Forget 'armchair adventure'-this is an edge-of-your-seat action thriller." - Charles Benoit, Relative DangerYou

"Thick with realistic suspense and political intrigue, Stinger will soon have readers forgetting that it is a fictional tale. Anyone who enjoys strong female lead characters, underlying romance and stories laced with CIA agents will certainly enjoy Diana Chambers' novel. Journalist Robin Reeves is hot on the trail of a great story, and she has a solid contact to approach-the leader of an Afghan group that the governments would love to get their hands on is her former college lover... Her tenacity in pursuit of the story impresses handsome CIA agent Nick Daley (who appears in... The Company She Keeps) while advancing closer to making contact with her ex-lover. Soon, though, she finds that her stroke of luck is far from a coincidence, and that the meddling nature of governments and fanatics has her dancing like a puppet on a string. Chambers keeps readers on their toes with twists that will leave them guessing what is going to happen next, and the ending has a great surprise in store. -curledup.com/stingerc.htm

"Chambers has done it again with her new spy thriller, Stinger. Twisted tales of deception and wickedly woven webs lure the reader to question not only where the story is going, but their own knowledge of the events unfolding in our world... A great read for men and women alike." - Robby Schumacher, Novel Dialogue

"Many of the scenes in the book took me right back to the sights, sounds and smells of the place." - Brock N. Meek, Journalist

From the Publisher:

This is a novel that had to be written, about a part of the world most of us can barely imagine. Praised for its riveting plot, vivid characters and deep sense of place, Stinger takes us inside pre-Taliban Afghanistan, a dangerous world of intrigue and mystery. Not only suspenseful, it is a very timely read that no one can afford to miss. From the last battlefield of the Cold War to the tribal no-man's land of the War on Terror, Stinger sets the stage for the profound events playing out today in Central Asia. This book will keep you up at night—and keep you wondering.

From the Author:

People often ask how I do my research, if I travel to the places I write about. In the case of Stinger, I journeyed twice to Pakistan and was especially fascinated by Peshawar, the ancient border town where the story opens, a hotbed of intrigue. I had the image of WWII Casablanca, that mysterious atmosphere. We traveled deep into the countryside, including some remote and very traditional Karakoram areas, and also visited the Darra gun bazaar, which I describe in the book as having a carnival-type atmosphere. Touring this arms village—--cheerful, yet deadly—--was a surrealistic experience that led to a popular travel article. Besides gun dealers, we met people in many walks of life, mostly hospitable and kind. 

We came close to the Khyber Pass, but were denied entry for security reasons...— ours! As the entrance to the Indian subcontinent, the Khyber Pass has had a storied— and violent— past, fought over by would-be conquerors. In one particularly nasty ambush, Afghan tribesmen let a lone Englishman survive to tell the tale. I loved doing the research and unearthed wonderful old books, some dating back to the Mughal period before the British Empire. Sometimes I think I've been working on Stinger for about that long!

I also enjoyed my research for The Company She Keeps. Although I did not travel to Iran, readers often say the Iranian part is their favorite and makes them feel they've been there. I have a deep affection for Islamic cultures, which I think comes out in my work.
