The disillusioned former Mossad officer who blew the whistle on his old organization By Way of Deception, —not reviewed now gives us his first novel, about When Shaby Talaat, a Syrian National Security middleman whom Mossad op Natan Stone's been running as Foul Play, lucks into a hot secret—that an agent called the Fox has been gathering and training members for a new Syrian-backed Palestinian terrorist unit whose mandate is to assassinate moderate Palestinians who are ready for peace talks with Israel—Natan moves swiftly to infiltrate the group and spike its plans.
His masters at Mossad, however, have other ideas, since they have no objections to the assassinations. In fact, Mossad, Natan learns in a particularly entertaining aside, had been perfectly willing to assassinate Jimmy Carter when the Camp David negotiations seemed to be giving away too much to the Egyptians. So Natan goes off the books to place somebody who, ironically, turns out to be Nadin, a notorious terrorist's daughter, and another free-lancer like himself inside the Fox's lair—not realizing that Col.
Karl Reinhart, the former Stasi terrorist head who's now working with the Syrians, is on to him and, eager to protect the mole he's had lodged in Mossad for years, plans to kill two birds with one Stone by fingering Natan as the mole. As his old comrades chase him all over Beirut, Paris, and The Hague, Natan has to figure out a way to safeguard Nadin without blowing her cover—at the same time identifying and exposing the real mole once and for all. Anybody who doubts he can do it all, and do it his way, hasn't spent much time among Israelis.
Authentic, offbeat tradecraft and clever touches throughout make this worthwhile despite its unmemorable characters— including the hero—and chop-socky prose. A touching family drama that effectively explores the negative impact of stress on fragile relationships. A middle-aged woman returns to her childhood home to care for her ailing father, confronting many painful secrets from her past. Gone is the rebellious young person she remembers, and in his place stands a compassionate, accomplished adult.
As Jack and Mallory chase down answers, Mallory also tries to repair her rocky relationships with her two sisters and determine why her father has always been so hard on her. Even so, Delinsky sometimes manages to pick up the pace, and in those moments the beauty and nuance of this complicated family tale shine through.
A love letter to the power of books and friendship. Women become horseback librarians in s Kentucky and face challenges from the landscape, the weather, and the men around them. Alice thought marrying attractive American Bennett Van Cleve would be her ticket out of her stifling life in England. But when she and Bennett settle in Baileyville, Kentucky, she realizes that her life consists of nothing more than staying in their giant house all day and getting yelled at by his unpleasant father, who owns a coal mine.
And even though all this makes Margery a town pariah, Alice quickly grows to like her. Alice spends long days in terrible weather on horseback, but she finally feels happy in her new life in Kentucky, even as her marriage to Bennett is failing. She writes about Kentucky with lush descriptions of the landscape and tender respect for the townspeople, most of whom are poor, uneducated, and grateful for the chance to learn.
Although Alice and Margery both have their own romances, the true power of the story is in the bonds between the women of the library.
They may have different backgrounds, but their commitment to helping the people of Baileyville brings them together. Already have an account? Log in. Trouble signing in? Retrieve credentials.
