What People are Saying About This
Having (covered) the Afghan war against the Soviets, I certainly appreciated the accuracy of Diana's scene setting, in and around Peshawar and inside Afghanistan itself. Many of the scenes in the book took me right back to the sights, sounds and smells of the place. --Journalist Brock N. Meek

Forget 'armchair adventure'this is an edge-of-your-seat action thriller. Charles Benoit, Relative Danger, You.
"Stinger is a must read, a romantic thriller that grabs you and won't let go. Prepare yourself for a fascinating plot with more twists and turns than the Khyber Pass."
A romantic spy thriller... thick with realistic suspense and political intrigue, Stinger will soon have readers forgetting that it is a fictional tale. Anyone who enjoys strong female characters, 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. - Lillian Brummet
Looking for a good read, pick up Stinger by Diana Chambers. With today's headlines in Afghanistan and Pakistan, this is the book of the day... fascinating. A great adventure for men and women. It begs for more. Sam Van Zandt, South Bay Sunday, KBAY-FM, San Jose
"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. Her perspicuous knowledge of current and historical events in Southwestern Asia keeps the reader locked into detailed imagery that doesn’t let go. With "close to home" scenarios, uncommon characters, and steamy trysts this is a great read for men and women alike."
