Windle's speciality is definetly international suspense focusing on South America. The DMZ follows a young reporter as she goes to cover a story on violence in Colombia and finds herself tangled in a web more sticky than anybody thought. She grew up in the village she goes to, and that adds to the drama. The characters are developed well and those in hiding are well cloaked until the appropiate time. She makes their long treks remain interesting and not seem too boring. The only problem with it is its somewhat predictable end. But what was she supposed to do? This book isn't wonderful but it's probably her best and worth your time.
