The closest I've seen to Stieg Larsson's writing style. Excellent spy novel.

Intense, gripping story starts with a bullet leaving the gun of a paid assassin who realizes as he shoots that the target is the WRONG MAN. International counter-terroris, technology and politics of covert operations (though never too technical; never boring). I was completely engrossed in following the team that had planned that original (mis) assassination, Operation Flute, across oceans & continents, most of all rooting for the main protagonist, Eytan Eckstein, as he came to believe someone had figured out the identities of the international members of Operation Flute and was hunting them down. Couldn't ask for a better spy novel.

Gripping! Palestinian nationalist vs. Israeli Intelligence agent.
Skillfully plotted fiction, a superbly crafted read. The details of this book are fact-based. In order to protect the professionals who must continue to operate in this precarious world, the author changed certain military names, intelligence terms and operational techniques. Locales and dates altered. Book has been reviewed by the IDF Military Censor which is a requirement due to authors' background. You will really enjoy this as much as I did.
