17 Five star reviews on Amazon!!
The year is 1981. The Osirak nuclear facility will become operational in a few weeks. Can British MI6 agent Nikki Sinclair stop an Armageddon of unimaginable horror and destruction from engulfing the Middle East?
Sinclair is sent on a mission that will be fraught with danger, deception and betrayal. Unexpectedly she encounters her ex-lover, Dvora Bar Zahavi who is an agent for the Mossad, is this a coincidence? Or are dark forces gathering around Sinclair?
Sparks fly again, and Sinclair's emotions are twisted and torn, can she trust Dvora? Can she trust her own side? Or perhaps no one at all? Sinclair begins to understand that she is little more than a pawn in a dangerous  international game of physical intimacy.
This fast paced, action packed, grand panoramic spy thriller is set in five countries and over three continents. Loosely based on a true story, code named Operation Opera by the Israelis, this exciting book by Jaye Rothman will intrigue and entertain you.

Good Reads Review from Mal's Blog - NightlyReading
Dec 25, 2013
4 of 5 stars
Read in December, 2013
Freshman author Jaye Rothman certainly creates a riveting thriller with an entwined romance ingredient combining for a great read. The Hell of Osirak is a creative combination of multiple genres. I found the narrative fresh simply due to fact there is a substantial plot - this is not some lesbian erotica that's a dime a dozen out there. True, this novel incorporates romance but that's the defining line - a romance not erotica. 
Those of you that know me know I tend to favor strong female protagonists, especially when they take on occupations conventionally held by men. Dvora and Nikki are two very strong characters both in a position and field largely dominated by men. 
Incorporating the nonfictional event of Osirak creates an enthralling read. Rothman has no problem capturing the readers attention with loads of suspense. A few surprise twists and turns gained my full attention and interest creating my focus to never stray. Rothman gave enough info on the background and history of the two characters without weighing the reader down. Having their past, present and questionable future explored transitioned well. 
The Hell of Osirak is an exciting novel, with two incredibly strong women with a intricate past and shaky future in a field full of excitement and danger. The ending was superb, a true surprise.

From the Author

I have always been an avid reader of thrillers and espionage books. I spent years scanning the bookshelves searching for a spy novel that featured a believable female protagonist but I never found one.
So I decided to write a book that fitted the bill. So Nikki Sinclair was conceived!  There is no other protagonist in fiction like Nikki Sinclair who is sexy, gutsy and a lesbian who happens to be a spy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting spy and lesbian story from a new author December 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jaye has identified a niche in this field where she combines the excitement of the secret service (MI6 and Mossad) and a Lesbian love affair between two foreign agents. This story introduces us to the two main characters who we eagerly follow and grow attached to throughout the novel. At times you can almost feel yourself immersed in their characters and soon visualise yourself in their situations. Both myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed this first novel as she has researched well, using her knowledge of each of the countries represented to make a realistic story. We eagerly await the next in the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind! December 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book just took my breath away!!It has two themes basically,which are intertwined brilliantly!The novel has elements of truth in it..And seems very plausible,very very real..I kinda find it hard to categorize this book as a novel themed on LGBT/Lesbian genera or as a historical fictional!!I'd say,the book belongs to both of these categories EQUALLY!!Which makes this book a masterpiece..It is very rare to find a lesbian themed book which is not erotica and NOT just a graphic description(s) of a series of sexual scenes..It is very tastefully written and the other pro-Israel/spy/Mossad theme steals the show!!

The danger Iraq's Osirak nuke plant created for Israel was very real,Saddam Hussein WAS brutal enough to use chem weapons/poisonous gases on Iraq's own people as we saw,Israel did herself and our world a big big favor by taking out his nukes...And the whole story is written on this backdrop..Israel has saved millions of lives by taking out Osirak..And the novel based on this real incident,shows much of how various state spy agencies interact,or at least interacted during that time..And shows us the complexities of their relations..

The other interesting aspect of the book was the dilemma lesbian agents have to face while working for these agencies.My heart was broken for Nikki Sinclair,the main character of the book as she has to sleep with men to gain intelligence.She is a strong willed character and she is very REAL in a sense,she is vulnerable,not invincible,and that makes you root for her!Her ordeal is heartbreaking,but her will to prevail is very strong,as she goes through her services as an agent for the UK(Britain),she experiences everlasting love form a fellow Israeli spy Dvora only to get her heart broken again and again,just to bounce back!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! May 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I actually really enjoyed the story-within-a-story setup. The literature nerd in me loved finding connections between the inner story and the frame story. The plot and characters of the inner story are just amazing. I adore this book because it tackles LGBT issues within a historical context. Definitely recommend to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling , engaging and heatbreaking March 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A thrilling, fast paced spy novel, which doesnt have a dull moment. Set in Britain, Israel, South Africa, Zaire, France, Iraq and New Zealand. It is a novel where you really do not know what will happens next.
I could really get into the skin of Nikki Sinclair , a beautiful lesbian superpy besotted with memories of her Israeli lover Dvora Bar Zahavi, and sent on dangerous missions around the world for MI5 while battling prejudice against her for her homosexuality, her past demons and her dedication to serving her country.

the lesbian love scenes were tasteful and quite exqusite, while the traumatic rape Nikki undergoes five times during the book is disturbing and heatbreaking.
What makes Nikki so endearing is that she is a combination of both toghness and vulnerability, she is not some cartoon superheo
Her story is in many cases a sad one from her rejection by her parents because of her being a lesbian (the birthday and Christmas cards she sends them even are unreturned) to the way M15 forces her into the beds of men even after her traumatic rape.
Nikki met Dvora during her training in 1973 when a lot of countries still cooperated freely with Israel before the years of isolation imposed on Israel by perfidious enemies.
the heart of the novel revolves around the race to obtain the microfilm details of Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussein's nuclear plans to destroy Israel which culminated in 1981 in the Israeli raid that destroyed Saddam's Osirak nuclear plant
I found myself biting my nails for both heroines, cheering for them (especially when Nikki kills one of her tormentors and rapists, also being one of Saddam's key men at Osirak)
Apart from that is great to read fiction that gives a sympathetic portrayal of Israel, in an age when it all so fashionable to demonize that tiny country struggling for survival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling & well-researched February 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Agents Nikki Sinclair and Dvora Bar Zahavi met and feel in love during a training they both attended despite being agents of different countries. After a seven year separation the two meet again while on a mission and reignite their romance. However, the mission takes a dramatic twist and the two are separated once again. Nikki Sinclair becomes cast in another risky mission and her world begins to unravel. Can two opposite agents find and keep love? Will Nikki's mission finally be the downfall of everything she's holding onto?

The Hell of Osirak introduced me to a new literary world of espionage and secret missions. The author describes in her blurb that some of the events are based on true events- which had me googling of course as I read. I loved the historical aspect of this book and also enjoyed reading about characters in a different setting and country than I usually read.

This book also contains a harsh look into the sacrifices agents may have to make in the field. Nikki Sinclair suffers some scenes of torture and sexual assault provoked because of her sexuality. While this book takes place in the 80s and times and attitudes have changed, this material may not be for everyone to read. While brutal, I thought the storyline was realistic and I felt that Nikki and I endured so much together as character and reader.

Romance, espionage, and betrayal- this book has it all! While this book accounts to a little over 200 pages on my ereader it felt like a 500 page book with all of the action and intricate details of the selected missions. The first half truly sets up the book with many details and introductions of various characters in various countries.
