Another great review on Amazon:
This riveting tale of a young news reporter, Adam Marks, during the height of apartheid-era South Africa, and his subsequent relocation to Israel in a story that links key players to the two countries and resulting in a climactic end, is a must read. Told from the perspective of someone who has lived through that period, Larry Butchins captures the mood, sights, and even smells of what life was like in 1970’s South Africa, when often the only thing standing for truth against a ruthless, race-based government was a surprisingly free press. By dogged, daring journalism Adam Marks reveals the inner workings of the resistance to apartheid, uncloaking characters that would remain pivotal to a story that continues after his immigration to Israel in the late 1980’s.
In Israel, where Adam has settled with his wife and children into his new life, the pace picks up following an unspeakable attack by terrorists on Adam’s family. He is swept into a web of intrigue, taking him to London and Iraq, resulting in a climactic series of events back on Israeli soil. This novel is a a true page-turner, and I recommend it without reservation.
