Stinger is a romantic spy thriller novel with an international setting of the Middle East (Pakistan
and Afghanistan), Russia and North America. 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'
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. The very first day of her arrival in the Mideast, Robin realizes the intensity of the culture, and the overwhelming heat has her wishing for air conditioning and modern society. Her tenacity in
pursuit of the story impresses handsome CIA agent Nick Daley (who appears in
another book by the same author, 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.
Author Diana R. Chambers specializes in romantic thrillers and has authored
three published books to date including The Company She Keeps, Stinger, and her next release,
Beyond the Border, should hit store shelves soon. Diana currently lives in California
and enjoys international travel.
The cover design for this paperback book by Sophia Valco is based on Erin Boomer’s stunning photograph,
setting the perfect mood for this book. While I could find no information on the eco-printing options taken by the publisher, Avantine Press (acid or chlorine-free paper, recycled content, veggie inks, carbon offsetting, eco-registered forests, etc.), the book was published in the US, which results in fewer fossil fuels spent on North American readers.
