Only one American, Lt. Colonel Evan Burton, has the courage and the local experience to track down Kelly Trost. Disillusioned by the hopelessness and cruelty of other men's wars, and by the cynicism of his own government, Burton is prepared to hang up his uniform--when the fate of one young woman calls him back to duty.
It will prove to be the most difficult and brutal mission of his career, as he searches for her amid the chaos of a lawless country controlled by gangsters, religious zealots, warlords, oil executives, mutinous generals and foreign spies. For an innocent has become a bargaining chip in a cold and ruthless global game, and she may be more valuable dead than alive. Her only hope lies in her fierce will to survive--and in a lone soldier who would give his life to save her.
Powerful and provocative, rich in authentic detail and breathtaking in suspense, THE DEVIL'S GARDEN is an extraordinary work of fiction that transcends genre, an unforgettable novel in which the fate of nations tomes down to the fate of two human belongs.
