Could a major scandal cause the United States to terminate its support for Israel? The Masada Complex gives us a chilling portrayal of exactly such a scenario. The novel's unforgettable hero is Masada El-Tal, a beautiful Israeli expatriate now working as a an investigative reporter in Arizona. Her latest story causes the suicide of a U.S. senator, and a mysterious organization attempts to assassinate her in order to stop her investigation. With the clock ticking, her friends turn out to be enemies, and those she has accused come to her aid. And the truth Masada uncovers exceeds her worst nightmares.

"As good as DeMille and Follett! The Masada Complex delivers fast pace, brilliant plot, unforgettable characters, and a mesmerizing premise. Terrific!" Stephen J. Wall, author of The Morning After and On the Fly.

About the Author
Avraham Azrieli, a graduate of Columbia Law School in New York City, tried many complex court cases before publishing his first novel, The Masada Complex (a political thriller) in 2010. A full-time author since then, his other books include the Israeli spy novels The Jerusalem Inception and The Jerusalem Assassin, as well as Christmas for Joshua (a family drama dealing with interfaith conflicts), The Mormon Candidate (a political thriller), Thump (a courtroom drama featuring sexual harassment and racism) and The Bootstrap Ultimatum headshot(a mystery involving the commercialization of Memorial Day). He also authored Your Lawyer on a Short Leash (a guide to dealing with lawyers) and One Step Ahead (a WWII biography, which inspired the musical By Wheel and by Wing). Avraham grew up in Israel, where he received extensive Talmudic education, served as an intelligence officer and, after attending law school, clerked for the Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem. Residing primarily in the United States since 1990, he currently lives near Washington DC with his wife, a physician, and their four children. Like Ben Teller, the protagonist in The Mormon Candidate and The Bootstrap Ultimatum, Avraham often rides his motorcycle in the mountainous forests of western Maryland. www.AzrieliBooks.com
