Duk Retrieved August 31, Ostrovsky blacj points out that the need-to-know rule was not closely followed in the Mossad because of its small size and the need for case officers to fill many roles. Wandered into this franchise storyline halfway through an apparent series, yet found it surprising easy to follow. This page was last edited on 30 Novemberat Could this ever happen?

I purchased the book after meeting the author at his gallery in Phoenix. He had written another book that I had read, about his experiences in the Mossad. I found the story started a little slow and was a little far fetched. The story is about a secret Russian military unit that plans to overthrow the current Russian President and create a new world order.
As I started the books starts a little slow but towards the end the plot picks up. I think the the plan to stop the coup is a little weak and would not work. I would not really recommend this book to any one unless they really liked this type of Military thriller.
I found VIctors eloquent writing style to be quite good. The theme of the book was brilliant which differs from common secret intelligent fiction books. I found this book to be of a more realistic view, lacking passion and detail, which for me, made the book less captivating. It was interesting and enjoyable, I liked reading it, seeing how it would pan out. Victors quirky humour was funny, a good aspect of In light of by way of deception and the other side of deception, this book was very good.
Victors quirky humour was funny, a good aspect of the story. Sometimes I found there to be to many characters involved or mentioned, that did become a little confusing at times but maybe I just was not engaged enough.
Either way, a good read, def worth it for any one who enjoys militant fiction. Would have been a great beach book. That is strike two. The third problem was a typo: a missed s after a comma. Most literature is proofread, in my experience. So this is not worth my time.
The end! Rather mindless espionage thriller. Something to occupy your time. It had some interesting plot hooks but otherwise felt more like a pain-by-numbers thriller. Wounded warrior forced into action by loyalty, betrayed by a beautiful women, works with unexpected allies to defeat stereotypical evil bad guy. It was entertaining as far as it went but nothing that stood out either in the writing or the characters. Wandered into this franchise storyline halfway through an apparent series, yet found it surprising easy to follow.
Toyed with giving this two stars, but much of the Kremlin does get battered by armored assault.
