Книга: Peter Schechter «Pipeline»


Серия: "-"

In the heart of a blistering summer, blackouts in California are causing panic and chaos. People are dying in darkened hospitals. Dangerous convicts are escaping from a Sacramento prison through the powered-down electric fences. In South America, a meeting between an influential Peruvian senator and the managers of a gargantuan natural gas company could change the balance of power in the Western Hemisphere forever. A call from the White House in the dead of night plunges special assistant to the president Tony Ruiz into a dark and hellish nightmare. A new Cold War has dawned - at stake is nothing less than America's survival - as a handful of insiders race to save their country from a ruthless, re-emergent enemy wielding the most devastating weapon of all: energy.

Peter Schechter, born 1959, is an international strategic communications consultant and author.


Schechter is founding partner of Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter and Associates (CLS), a company which advises politicians, companies, non-profits and international organizations. He created CLS in 1992 with colleagues Bob Chlopak and Charlie Leonard after a decade on Capitol Hill and with the Sawyer Miller Group, a New York consulting firm. Schechter has served as principal election advisor in nearly every country in Latin America, including work for President Alvaro Uribe (his fourth Presidential client in Colombia), President Fernando Henrique Cardoso in Brazil, and President Ernesto Zedillo in Mexico. His clients are wide-ranging, from wine-making regions like Champagne, Port and Sherry seeking protection from name infringements in the US to Hunt Oil’s Camisea project in Peru..
Fluent in six languages, he is a frequent political commentator for Univision and Telemundo, the nation’s two largest Spanish language television networks.Apart from his work, Schechter is also a Virginia goat farmer, a co-owner and board member with superstar chef Jose Andres of five successful Washington restaurants (including prize-winning Jaleo and Zaytinya), a co-proprietor of Agur Winery in Israel, and an critically acclaimed author.
Schechter published his first novel, Point of Entry, in 2006. The Washington Post called it “fast moving” [ [http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/01/29/AR2006012900891.html The Washington Post] on "Point of Entry" (January 30 2006)] , The Chicago Tribune said it is “as good as this kind of writing gets.” The St. Louis Post Dispatch said the plot is “why-didn’t I think-of-that-clever.” [ [http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/entertainment/reviews.nsf/book/story/ED41BBE219809E838625710A0078CE50?OpenDocument The St. Louis Post Dispatch] on"Point of Entry" (February 5 2006)] . Newsweek called it “a rip-roaring novel about terrorism, nuclear plots and presidential dating.” The Boston Globe declared it “entertaining.”
His second book, "Pipeline", will be published in early 2009.
Peter Schechter lives in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., with his Spanish wife Rosa and two daughters Alia and Marina.
