Overview

It's 1963. A gifted and inquisitive student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology stumbles on a storage room filled with unusual supplies. What begins as a student stunt soon explodes into a life-changing misadventure. Decades later, an unexpected encounter with a college classmate shakes a world-weary computer consultant out of his routine and brings him face-to-face with a distant past that he must quickly decipher-or die.

Bashert, meaning fate, is an intricate and intense political thriller, a tale of intrigue and innocence, devotion and destiny. Inspired by real events, Bashert is a page turner that caroms between continents and across timeframes as it narrates a story of betrayal and self-sacrifice set against the backdrop of Israel's emergence as a nuclear power.

    A page-turning thriller!

    Samson keeps the pages turning in this retro-techno-thriller. Protagonist Karl must chase the ghosts of his past to unspool a mystery over forty years old, but the trail isn't as cold as he thinks and he's soon embroiled in a conflict much larger than he ever imagined.
