A romantic spy thriller with a twist. When a secret shipment of Stinger missiles goes missing near the Khyber Pass, CIA officer Nick Daley becomes entangled in an unusual triangle with a San Francisco journalist and her former lover, now an elusive Afghan leader with a price on his head. They lead us into a realm of intrigue and betrayal, where hidden agendas provide their own kind of veil until the truth is revealed in a shocking climax. 

"Forget 'armchair adventure'--this is an edge-of-your-seat action thriller." -- Charles Benoit, Relative Danger, You

"A superbly crafted and highly recommended political thriller, Stinger... is a ripping good novel of page-turning suspense and plot-twisting intrigue." -- James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review

"A captivating and thrilling excursion... When I put (it) down at the end, I had to say 'Wow'. Then I went in search of the next book." -- Randall Masteller,

"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 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 whom 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 as she advances closer to finding her ex-lover. Soon, though, she finds that her stroke of luck is far from a coincidence. 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.  --

A great read for men and women alike."  -- Robby Schumacher, Novel Dialogue

"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

"The story spirals into a web of danger in a shadowy world of spies, hidden agendas, veiled identities and finally a shattering conclusion...Throughout the twists and turns, her writing preserves its sharp sense of place and immediacy." -- Stacy Trevenon, Half Moon Bay Review

"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

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.
