Back from Afghanistan, CIA officer Nick Daley recruits a patriotic young woman into the realm of espionage, high-tech treachery, and sexual intrigue.

Or does it?

About the Author

Diana Chambers was born with a book in one hand and passport in the other. Travel has opened many doors. An Asian importing business led to a Hollywood design career, and later scriptwriting led to novels. She is still smitten with the road not taken, still searching for the perfect suitcase. Her nose is always in a book.

Her romantic spy novel, Stinger, begins near the Khyber Pass as CIA officer Daley becomes entangled in an unusual triangle. In The Company She Keeps, Nick returns to Washington where he recruits a new agent and sends her into a world of danger. Diana is working on a California-Southeast Asia thriller and a true-life historical intrigue set in 1947 Hollywood and India.

Her work has been praised for its riveting plots, unusual characters, and deep sense of place. A member of Writers Guild of America, Sisters in Crime, and Mystery Writers of America, Diana lives in a small Northern California town with her fellow-traveler husband, arty daughter, brilliant mutt, and feral kitty, Marco Polo.
