For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
North From Calcutta is a non-stop tale of espionage and intrigue told from the unique perspective of a westernized Pakistani intelligence officer. The author, Duane Evans, is a former CIA officer with operational tours on four continents including duty as Chief of Station, the CIA’s most senior field position. Evans is the recipient of the Intelligence Star for valor, and prior to joining the Agency, he was a U.S. Army Special Forces officer.
Ambassador Cofer Black, former Chief of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center, says North From Calcutta is “A great tale of today’s espionage and terror” and is both “what it’s like” and “what it could be.” While North From Calcutta is set in India and Pakistan, the interwoven plot themes take readers to Washington, DC, London, Abu Dhabi, and Dhaka, Bangladesh. North From Calcutta will be of great interest to fiction readers who enjoy espionage, thrillers, adventure, and foreign intrigue. It will also appeal to readers who are interested in other countries, cultures and religions, international affairs, and politics. (ISBN: 978-0-9819454-0-8, 2009, 360 pgs. $24.95)
