PAYBACK Tells a Story of Payback in the Middle East

What happens when a routine trip to the Middle East to work on a gas pipeline project goes awry?

Mechanical engineer Harry Newhall and his Navy SEAL companion, Brock VanMarter, must now deal with the consequences of an attack from Muslim extremists. In R. E. Voss's new book, "Payback," the death of five expats sparks a chase for revenge and the involvement of American and foreign governments.

"I spent many years living and working in various parts of the world," said Voss. "My personal experiences have influenced the plot of the book and allowed me to highlight some of the actual situations of Americans living and working in this part of the world."

Full of action and adventure, this tale of international politics and terrorism leads two pipeline workers through ancient souqs, Roman ruins and the dunes of the Grand Erg Occidental.

"Payback" explores the idea of political correctness in terrorist situations and the risks that Americans face while working abroad.
