Editorial Reviews

Review

Los Angeles Times
"In the best tradition of the new espionage novel.  Kaplan's grasp of history and scene creates a genuine reality.  He seems to know every back alley of Damascus and Cyprus."
 
Hartford Courant
"A fine, taut, tense spy story full of furious action."

St Louis Post-Dispatch
"It's suspense all the way through."
 
Chicago Daily News
"Exceedingly rich in color about the Syrian capital."
 
BBC News
"The plotting is beautiful."

Kirkus Review
"... a smartly paced criss-cross laced with enough Mid-East semicruises to snare the MacInness armchair tourists."
 
American Library Association (starred review)
"A mission inside Syria, a last love affair, and the unfolding of the plot within a plot are handled by the author with skill and a sure sense of the dramatic."

About the Author

HOWARD KAPLAN, a native of Los Angeles, has lived in Israel and traveled extensively through Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. At the age of 21, he was sent on a mission into the Soviet Union to smuggle a dissident's manuscript on microfilm to London. His first trip was a success. On his second trip, he transferred a manuscript to the Dutch Ambassador inside his Moscow embassy. A week later, he was arrested in Khartiv in the Ukraine and interrogated for two days there and and two days in Moscow, before being expelled from the USSR. The KGB had picked him up for meeting dissidents and did not know about the manuscript transfers. He holds a BA in Middle East History from UC Berkeley and an MA in the Philosophy of Education from UCLA. He is the author of four novels.
