Book Description

In the mid-1960s, when Playboy was serializing the adventures of the world’s most famous superspy, they interspersed them with Sol Weinstein's rollicking tales of the Jewish state’s most hilarious weapon, Israel Bond. After the book editions of what the Chicago Tribune called “probably the funniest secret agent parodies ever written” had sold over a million copies, they were allowed to fall out of print. Decades later, they're back, in new editions with a new editorial polish by the original author.

Israel Bond may seem like a simple-if-sexy salesman for Mother Margolies’ Old World Chicken Soup, but when the Holy Land needs his skills – his quickness with a pun, his second-to-none semitic seduction techniques, and (if absolutely necessary) his abilities at actual espionage – then the man known by the code name Oy-Oy-7 (licensed not only to kill, but to say prayers over the corpse) does what needs to be done.

In a land surrounded by its enemies, Oy-Oy-7 is called on to guard the nation’s great benefactor, the generous but odd Lazarus Loxfinger. Is there more to Loxfinger than meets the eye? Bond aims to find out, even if doing so requires sleeping with dozens of exotic beauties!


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

We asked Sol Weinstein, author of the Hebrew Secret Agent Israel Bond (Oy Oy Seven) thrillers to describe his fulsome career in three sentences. They are: 1 1/2 – 3 months for kiting checks … 2 1/2 months for illegally checking kites at a Tokyo kids’ fair … and 1 week for pushing Stepan Novotny, infamous forger, from the top of the Prague National Bank. (The Czech bounced.) In addition to Oy Oy Seven’s capers in Loxfinger, Matzohball, On the Secret Service of His Majesty the Queen, and You Only Live Until You Die, he wrote a highly sentimental set of music and lyrics to “The Curtain Falls”, sung by Kevin Spacey in the biopic Beyond the Sea in his role as Bobby Darin. Sol currently resides in New Zealand, is a member of Temple Sinai in Wellington, and pronounces a favourite ethnic food as “kiegel”, not “kugel”.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very tongue-in-cheek July 17, 2012
By Sam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For someone like me who's watched the whole James Bond phenomenon from the fringes and thought "Srsly?!" this novel was quite fun, and much more intelligently written than other modern JB spoofs like the Austin Powers movies or Johnny English. I probably would have enjoyed it even more if I were a little more in-the-know about the details of 007's world, but it was still a page-turning, amusing read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kind Of Funny October 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was a quick read but I confess it becomes somewhat boring and the funny parts are sometimes trite. The title got me but the book would be great for a teenager perhaps.

3.0 out of 5 stars He's licensed to kill - and more... May 15, 2006
Format:Paperback
Step back into the Cold War with Isreal Bond, spy for the pre-Gaza Isrealis. Bond, a.k.a. Hebrew Secret Agent Oy-Oy-7, is not only licensed to kill, but also to perform a memorial service over the victim, already. Bond is dark, sinewy, and cruelly handsome.. he is a dashing, unstoppable spymaster mixed up in the most insanely sinister plot ever unleashed against the tiny nation of Erets Israel, fabled Land of Milk and Magnesia.

Before the events of 1967 and beyond, Israel was much easier seen as the "underdog" to people in the United States. Sol Weinstein capitalized on all that and more. His writing style is a great parody of Ian Fleming's, and the ethnic "in-jokes" are pure borscht belt.

So enjoy, already!

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining take of on James Bond, 007 April 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Take off on James Bond, 007. An Israeli spy who is a take off and does it all for laughs. Well written, but dated. I lived through the time, but am sure that I still missed some things related to the 60s that I should have gotten. Entertaining short book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay spoof September 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oy-Oy-7 # 1

An Israeli secret agent is assigned to protect a famous Jewish philanthropist.

I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Since I'm not a Bond fan, I figured this would either put me in stitches or put me to sleep. Sadly, it turned out to be the latter. It quite accurately reproduced the feel of the Bond stories, but I didn't find this Lothario any more intriguing than Fleming's original, and quit about a quarter of the way through. Spelling and grammar were acceptable, and the title was both a good spoof and relevant to the plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sol Weinstein's First May 15, 2006
Format:Paperback
This was the first in a long string of Borscht Belt parodies created by Sol Weinstein (not his real name) in the 1960s and 1970s. Here, his creation Israel Bond naviagtes some treacherous territory as he uproots the enemies he only wished he had...

The style was inimitable. We can only hope for a continuation of this tradition in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick read
It's a funny take-off on Ian Fleming's James Bond series and set in the '60's. The younger folks may not get all the references and inside jokes but they're cleverly over the top.

1.0 out of 5 stars I would give it zero stars
If zero stars were available, that's what I would have given this. Yes, it's tongue-in-cheek. A spoof. But a foolish spoof. One of the few books I've ever just put down. Read more

Not much of a story, trite and boring. Thought from the title that it would be cute, but it is a vanity piece by the writer.
