This is a great story to read in one sitting. It is a story about an agent of Mossad and what happens in his life and how he hunted because of something he did in the line of duty. At times I like crime books if they are well written and this one was. The characters were brought to life and you felt like you were watching a crime drama fit for TV. One similar to NCIS with the character of Ziva, this being her side and if she were male. It gives you a glimpse into the world of world issues and battles. It is full of twists, turns, romance, and even a lot of humor if you can see it in the semidarkness of the plot. This is a great read if you are reading it in one sitting. It was fast and kept you on the edge of your seat especially wondering if the female lead was “good guy” or not. What I did not like about it was that if you put it down it took a bit to get back into the flow of what you were reading. It was also written like an episode or series of an American crime drama. I also did not like the fact that at times it was hard to keep my intrest. I rate books differently than others. I use my stars as (*1) Will keep, reread, buy and pass on another copy and promote the author as best as I can. (**2) Will pass on and share with others it was a great book. (***3) Will donate it to thrift store. Glad I read it but not worth reading again. (****4) Not worth reading, great for a fire starter though. This was a 2* for me. I have already began telling my family about it.
This is a thrilling story about Arik Bar Nathan. A survivor of the Holocaust he now has become the head of Operations Division of Israel's intelligent services. When a mysterious German woman, named Eva,shows up at Arik's birthday party he finds himself falling in love with her. Will the fifty year old, divorced Arik loose his heart to her and escape the dangers on his life. With an assassin hunting him he will need to use all his wits. I must admit I did not get caught up in this book right away. I found it difficult to keep names and events straight but it is a worthwhile read. and one I am glad I stuck with. The author mixes love and danger delightfully in this exciting story involving those we never see. This tale of espionage story about those who work in the shadows is a definitely a good read.
First of all I really liked the title of this book. Its a thriller featuring murder and love, this book will have readers enrapt and glued to the pages till the end. Its a thriller with an international setting which combines drama, crime and romance. In short it has all the elements of keeping the readers entertaining. Nathan Ronen did a great job of creating a fast paced masterpiece laced with unexpected twists and with well developed characters. Arik is a departmental head at mossad but no one knows about his real job. As a result there are lots of fences to be mended in order to find some balance in his life. With lots of responsibilities on his shoulders, a failed mission creates many troubles in his life and then he cant afford to get distracted and fall in love. This created a sub plot in the story and I really liked this twist. I loved reading this book and I liked the style of Author which was seen in the characters and the plot of this book. I wish good luck to the Author for upcoming projects. I recommend this book to read.
