"KAPLAN IS UP THERE WITH THE BEST" - CLIVE CUSSLER

In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed out agent Ari Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago, to smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto. Or so he thinks.

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be falling in love with Ari, but she is asking too many questions. His communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The operation is only hours away and everything seems awry.

Desperate to succeed, Ari might risk everything. Even his life.

If you like foreign intrigue, a great mystery and wonderful writing dusted with some enticing sex. this is the book for you? A damaged and somewhat desperate Mossad agent goes to Damascus posing as a German on a rescue mission that goes horribly wrong. The characters are well defined and the action non-stop. What is known as a page-turner. You'll get an amazingly vivid picture of Damascus and the Middle East conflict. And once you've read this one, hop onto the next, Howard Kaplan's newest - Bullets of Palestine.

In a world where no one can be trusted and you are only as useful as the information you can procure, Ari Ben-Sion is a master spy, past his prime and with far too many ethics to play in the hardened world of the brutal Middle East. He is no James Bond, he is a flesh and blood, flawed man who knows nothing else, but is willing to go to the mat for his world. When he discovers he has been a pawn in a wicked and deadly game of spy versus spy, Ari must double his efforts to save both his honor and the lives of people depending on him. The deadline is coming, his performance must be perfect and when the curtain falls on his mission, Ari discovers a heinous truth about life and death. Follow along the streets of Damascus and throughout the Middle East where the dark world of politics, espionage and double agents thrive. Discover how love and lust can be used against even the best of the best and remember, danger hides around every corner in a world strained with hate. Howard Caplan’s The Damascus Cover is a slice of the underbelly of a world in turmoil, saturated in hate and mistrust. One false move, one misplaced alliance and the death knell tolls. Bold writing, sparing nothing for sensitive constitutions, this is raw and feels far too real to not to flinch at the events in this world. Dramatic, brutal and filled with razor-sharp twists, this is a fascinating and gripping read. I received this copy from Howard Kaplan in exchange for my honest review.

Jonathan Rhys Myers is starring in the film. Quick, lightning read with explosive plot turns! Greatly recommended.
