is a sequel to the author’s first thriller, Three
Envelopes, featuring Mossad secret service operatives, although it is
equally enjoyable as a stand-alone.
the latest novel, ably translated from Hebrew by Steven Cohen, Mossad is on the
hunt for its former agent 10483, now a disgruntled, vengeful psychopath who’s
trying to extinguish the organization of which he was once a part.But it’s not only Mossad who’s on his trail
but also two separate independent units all competing in a race against time,
and a race for glory, to snuff out and put an end to the ex agent’s evil genius.
mind and behaviour were rewired and messed with in programming experiments (called “transformations”) while he was with
Mossad.He now makes it his twisted, zealous mission
to exact retribution by seeking out and assembling a hidden nuclear warhead
that he’ll convey to and detonate at the CIA’s Langley HQ. His story is narrated in the first person that
makes it all the more immediate and urgent and gets the reader into his
thinking processes as to the reasons for his wanting to settle scores. Indeed, one
can’t help feeling a sneaking sympathy for him given how he was treated and
what he was subjected to.
author has extensive experience of hands on military intelligence and this
credibly shines through, is skillfully interwoven and makes for interesting and
vivid reading.The plotting is intelligent
and well structured; all major characters are given their fair share of telling
their version of this dark, complex story and the enthralling climax is
thrillingly played out in Tel Aviv. The result is an arresting, fast paced, not –your- average
thriller, a real nail biting page-turner written in immersive style that will
give readers a cracking ride to the very last suspenseful paragraph.
