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 Vicror 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, Judan, 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 lioh 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.

: Lion of Judah (): Victor Ostrovsky: Books

So I wrote a small review to really encourage people to read his first book, ostrovsyk Way of Deception’. That is a fascinating non-fictional account of the extremely important Israeli Mossad, as told by an ex-agent. After reading all three of Ostrovsky’s books recently, I am firmly vichor the mind that all three must be read to understand Israel’s deep objection to them and the absolute necessity for Americans to become familiar with them. Ostrovsky is not American; however, anyone who takes the time to study these books, including the roman a clef LION OF JUDAH, will realize that he has presented the intellectual means for Americans to discern what is only now appearing on the web under the disturbing website [ He states this in one of his books and in a rare interview.

I was expecting the dreary pastiche of most spy novels. I found myself reading it for the details I knew were overlooked in the real-time reporting of the world events he recounts.

The Caveat mentioned in the title of my review belongs to the writer’s craft. Ostrovsky ignores the professional writer’s rule that you don’t advance a story in your character’s quotes. That said, he no doubt felt he had no option. Ostrovsky was fighting against time in the early 90s to get his story out before the Ostrovsku figured out a way vixtor eliminate him. Staying in the public eye is one way to keep yourself alive.


He finished writing his three books over a decade ago. Inthe Mossad set out to bankrupt and ruin him financially. He is an artist. Ostrovsky’s books should be critical reading for every anchor intoning on national TV and Cable. White House pool reporters should be forced to have Ostrovsky’s valuable insight in the arsenal of their thinking patterns.

Considering that the only people high-fiving and extolling the destruction and demolition of the Twin Towers on were five Mossad agents caught on the banks of Jersey City with a video camera and mocking the burning of the towers with Zippo lighters, I would urge every American to read these books forthwith.

I read this book in three days. This is quite fast for me. The author is very skillful about telling several stories at once. You never know what is going to happen next in any of these stories. It seems every minor detail in the story seems to have dramatic consequences to what happens next.

Additionally, the action in the book is very fast. I was not bored for a single page during the entire book. However, the book did not have enough descriptive detail for my taste. I would have liked to get to know the characters and the cities they operated in in ostrovsiy detail.
