    The DMZ

    A Novel

    More than a decade after the end of the cold war has chilled the Marxist rebel movements around the world, one hot spot remains: Colombia. Why a democratic country with a growing economy should still feel the brushfires of a civil war is a mystery to U.S. analysts, but not to certain parties on the other side of the world.

    The inexplicable loss of three major U.S. assets draws the attention of the world to the Colombian demilitarized zone. Are the local Colombian rebels responsible? Or is a deadly Middle Eastern secret cloaked by the jungle canopy of the DMZ?

    Among the contingent of politicians and media headed for the DMZ seeking answers is reporter Julie Baker, whose parents had been missionaries in Colombia. Old hurts and terrors surge as she revisits the place of her birth... and her parents' deaths. When Julie's own abduction by guerrillas triggers a time bomb that has been ticking under the feet of the U.S. for a decade, she is left with more questions than answers.
    Author: Jeanette Windle
    As the child of missionary parents, award-winning author and journalist Jeanette Windle grew up in the rural villages, jungles, and mountains of Colombia, which are now guerrilla hot zones. Described as a "top notch storyteller" by Publishers Weekly, Jeanette's detailed writing is so realistic and carefully researched that government agencies have questioned her to determine if she has received classified information. Currently based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Jeanette has lived in six countries and has traveled extensively on five continents. She has fifteen books in print, including the political suspense best-seller CrossFire, The Parker Twins series for tweens, Betrayed and Veiled Freedom (Tyndale House).
