In his first novel which could be ripped from today's headlines, former CIA officer, Duane Evans plunges readers into the dangerous and uncertain world of Tarek Durrani, a westernized Pakistani intelligence operative who races to stop an attack against India by a deadly terrorist group. If the attack succeeds it will lead to an all out war between India and Pakistan with nuclear ramifications for the entire world. Of more immediate concern to Durrani, the attack also will take the life of the beautiful Indian architect who has cracked the combination to his soul. As the terrorist plot unfolds, Durrani plays out one last deadly game, putting his cold, practiced intelligence skills to the ultimate test. North From Calcutta is "a great tale of today's espionage and terror" says Cofer Black, former chief of the CIA's Counterterrorist Center. Hayden Peake, book reviewer, author, and curator of CIA's Historical Intelligence Collection describes the book as "an elegant example of espionage fiction." Says Richard Blake of Reader Views, "Evans is pioneering a new approach to the genre of espionage, intrigue and adventure novels. His handling of a Muslim hero, a Hindu heroine, in a setting of Islamic extremist activity is superb and destined to be the pacesetter for other writers in this time of explosive terrorist threat." National Best Selling author of "First In", Gary Schroen declares "the author takes us deep into the underside of Pakistan's intelligence services, where nationalism clashes with Islamic fundamentalism, as radical elements plot against India-with nuclear war hanging in the balance. Plot twists, well developed characters, settings that bring you the feel and smell of South Asia, this is a page-turning, exciting ride."
