Overview

Her first Foreign Service assignment--on a mission so secret her entire staff consisted of one Air Force missile expert--and it had to be Litania, a backwater Mediterranean island-nation that has been isolated for so long the people have not even heard of the USA. But with grim determination, knowing that the fate of the free world is in her hands, Ambassador Elizabeth Sullivan Wexford Adams sets out to sell the Litanians on "The American Way." The problem: how does one convince a people to change their ways when they believe everything is perfect? Rising to the challenge, she is succeeding, until ... Russians... bringing gifts and menace. And suddenly, two lonely Americans find themselves engaged in a battle of wits and intrigue, a battle for licentious hearts and bewildered minds.

Editorial Reviews

Alegria Reviewer
A delicious spoof of the Clancy and Ludlum type thrillers, Yankee Peddler has lots of action, tension, and a dollop of romance. Elizabeth's character grows nicely as the tale progresses while Kenneth loses some of his priggishness to become quite gallant. Laced with humor, yet sufficiently factual to support the plot, <I>Yankee Peddler</I> is a delightful read. 4 cups

Robert Hecker's book is a brilliant satire, and, in my opinion, should be labeled as such. It is not so much a romance novel or a simply humorous piece of writing. It is much more! Anyone who enjoys a good bit of tongue-in-cheek writing will want to add this one to the reading list!

This was an interesting read. Elizabeth and Kenneth were entertaining characters, and don't get me started on Papa George! This read is a light one with plenty of humor. Mr. Hecker has indeed penned a read that will entertain readers for the short time it takes to read the book.
