Summary

Summary

The activist daughter of a US senator has been kidnapped, vanishing into the dark heart of a lawless, oil-rich nation. Her fate has become the concern of governments and multinational corporations jockeying for power in the area. But only one American, Lt. Col. Evan Burton, has the courage and the local experience to track down Kelly Trost.

Disillusioned by the cruelty of other men’s wars and by the cynicism of his own government, Burton is prepared to hang up his uniform when the fate of one young woman calls him back to duty. It will prove to be the most difficult and brutal mission of his career, as he searches for her amid the chaos of a war-torn country controlled by gangsters, religious zealots, warlords, oil executives, mutinous generals and foreign spies. For an innocent has become a bargaining chip in a cold and ruthless global game.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A satisfyingly extravagant portrait of the country…cracklingly intelligent writing, a well-chiseled plot, and a taste of what’s at stake in the Caucasus.” Wall Street Journal
“A really good yarn…Peters creates extremely strong characters and puts them in believable situations.” San Francisco Examiner
“A harrowing story, well written and riveting.” Chattanooga Times
“Narrator Edward Lewis does a splendid job with the HUGE variety of accents. He successfully blends the brash with unexpected appearances of sensitivity…Good ‘escapist’ reading gives us the chance to glimpse far-away places.” AudioFile
“[Peters’] portraits of desperate men pushed by events beyond their cognizance are more convincing than one finds in most thrillers.” Library Journal
“Peters offers readers the thrill ride of their lives all the way.” Booklist
“Peters manages to be both rousing (definite summer movie possibilities here) and deeply disturbing. His portrait of the snakes mapping out current East-West diplomacy may make you long for the verities of the Cold War.” Kirkus Reviews
