Matzohballby Sol Weinstein
Things are really smoking on the island of El Tiparillo when the Holy Land's superest, secretest agent Israel Bond is called to wield his weaponized mezuzah to save innocent lives and formerly-innocent beautiful lasses in the midst of rebellion. Will he manage to fend off the assassins, the vicious wildlife, and the mysterious Herbie while seducing the island's wide array of fascinating and exotic women... or will it be the other way around? With Soviet spymaster General Bolshyeeyit, the insidious Dr. Nu, Rotten Roger, and "The Man with the Golden Gums" all on his tuchis, things will not be easy for Oy-Oy-7, licensed not only to kill but also to say prayers over the body...
In the mid-1960s, when Playboy was serializing the adventures of the world's most famous superspy, they interspersed them with the rollicking tales of Israel's most hilarious weapon, Israel Bond. After the book editions of what the Chicago Tribune called "probably the funniest secret agent parodies ever written" had sold over a million copies, they were allowed to fall out of print. Decades later, all four books in the Israel Bond series are back in new editions!

Meet the Author
We asked Sol Weinstein, author of the Hebrew Secret Agent Israel Bond (Oy Oy Seven) thrillers to describe his fulsome career in three sentences. They are: 1 1/2 - 3 months for kiting checks ... 2 1/2 months for illegally checking kites at a Tokyo kids' fair ... and 1 week for pushing Stepan Novotny, infamous forger, from the top of the Prague National Bank. (The Czech bounced.)
In addition to Oy Oy Seven's capers in Loxfinger, Matzohball, On the Secret Service of His Majesty the Queen, and You Only Live Until You Die, he wrote a highly sentimental set of music and lyrics to "The Curtain Falls", sung by Kevin Spacey in the biopic Beyond the Sea in his role as Bobby Darin.
Sol currently resides in New Zealand, is a member of Temple Sinai in Wellington, and pronounces a favourite ethnic food as "kiegel", not "kugel".
