“Le Carré fans will enjoy Ben-David’s look behind the scenes of government-sanctioned hits and the tension between loyalty to the chain of command and dissent.
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Mishka Ben-David delivers spy thrillers with all the authenticity and inside knowledge of an ex-Mossad agent.”
- Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Jerusalem: The Biography

Caution: This book is translated into British English, so some words may be unfamiliar to the American reader, e.g. "clapped out vehicles of workers"; understand: "worn out vehicles". Not a huge problem.
Mishka Ben-David is an enormously talented author, who spent a dozen years as an operative in Israel's Mossad (secret service) and uses his experience there to great effect in his writing to which he now devotes himself, rather than to espionage. Or so we are told. Duet in Beirut: A Thriller details the life and loves of a couple of spies, Udi and Ronen, as by turns they work with and against each other, and by turns obey and disobey their superiors. Check him out on You Tube, and then go buy this page-turner.
