This fiction can become fact.
The author has spent many years in Israel, is married to an Israeli woman and much of this fast moving spy thriller is based on actual events that occurred in Palestine and Israel. The basis of the story is that if a nuclear bomb is exploded on the land just before the usual annual phenomena of winds flowing across Israel, this will totally wipe out Israel and all of its inhabitants. The only nuclear bombs being produced in the Mid-east are in Pakistan and so a fanatic cult of Arabs manage to steal the bomb, but only one Arab knows where it is because he planted it and that is Rashid Sedawi, who is eaten up with hatred for the Israelis because his family was killed by them.
Arik Ben Ami, a blond Israeli Jew becomes best friends with David Katri, an Arab-appearing Jew from Damascus. They train together in the army as tank commanders and eventually the Mossad separates them and trains them separately as secret agents and spies. Neither young man is aware of the other being the same. Now throw in much action, spying, fighting, lust, love, this story is action-packed. Because it has many Arab or Israeli words, the scenes are so realistic, the reader feels part of them. The characters in this story are well developed, and although there are many of them so that the reader may become a little confused, it is not important to the story line. It simply makes everything more real. This is a long book, but I enjoyed it and I do recommend it.
