Summary

Summary

“Thrilling.”—The Wall Street Journal

From the author of the internationally bestselling “supremely effective, cunningly crafted” (The Providence Journal) thriller Traitor, a cerebral and suspenseful novel of high-stakes intrigue in Israel’s top intelligence agency.

After Ya’ara Stein is forced out of her job at the Mossad—the secret intelligence service of Israel—she is called upon by the Prime Minister for a classified job. Known for her aptitude, beauty, and deadliness, Stein is asked to set up a secret unit that will act independently, answerable only to the Prime Minister.

This streamlined and deadly unit, filled with bright young men and women recruited and trained by Stein, quickly faces threats both old and new. Descendants of the lethal militant Red Army Faction have returned to terrorize Europe and fears of a radical Islam splinter group force the unit to distinguish between facts and smoke screens. As Stein’s cadets struggle to crush these threats, they soon discover how easily the hunter can become the hunted.

A dazzling, tension-filled novel that sheds light on the world hidden just below the surface of our everyday lives, this thriller offers a peek into the dark behind the curtain where today’s deadliest conflicts are fought. With breathless pacing and shocking twists and turns, it proves that Jonathan de Shalit “has learned well from the likes of Mr. le Carré” (The Wall Street Journal).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This second novel featuring Ya’ara is a superb international thriller. Readers of Joseph Kanon will love the descriptive setting. Fans of John le Carré and Daniel Silva will appreciate the swift pace and shocking twists and turns.” Library Journal (starred review)
“It’s the portrait of a stone killer—‘a complex, dark, and violent soul”— and her world, miles away from Fleming’s romanticized capers and le Carré’s meditations on love and betrayal, that linger in the mind.” Booklist
“A different kind of spy novel by a one-time Mossad agent writing under a pen name…hums with drama and authenticity.” Kirkus Reviews
