The Devil's Garden
When the headstrong daughter of a U.S. senator disappears in a warravaged country torn between east and west, only a disillusioned American officer possesses the connections and expertise to track her down-while a startling range of enemies don't want the girl to survive. Up against Islamic extremists, unscrupulous oil executives, rogue Russians and treacherous European "allies," Lieutenant-colonel Evan Burton undertakes a last, deadly mission--faced with a coup in the streets, opium smugglers in mountain fortresses and even elements within the U.S. government determined to stop him. A "Casablanca" for the post-Cold War world, The Devil's Garden is a beautifully written, can't-put-it-down thriller grounded in the gritty reality of current events.

This read is not to be missed by anyone with an interest in the realities of the Caspian and the real facts of the post U.S.S.R., and the decline of U.S. influence in this nasty corner of the world. Mr. Peters, with brain on the ground experience in the effluent of the Soviet Empire deserves a serious (and entertaining) read.
