"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The main character, the Kidon - Ariel, is fascinating and Mr. England gives us just enough about his background to leave us wanting more and form our own idea of what he's gone through. Muslim extremists are a very clear and present danger to the world and NOBODY has a better grip and understanding on this subject than Stephen England. Just wait until you read this... Then you will understand what I'm saying.
Great job Mr. England and my only complaint is that I have to wait for the next episode.
Boy, was I surprised!
England clearly researched the historical record on this very well, so there are none of those "d'oh!" moments that so often occur when reading books that involve events in Israel. So much so, that the dialogue even matches the real personalities of the historical characters (Ehud Barak, Shaul Mofaz, etc.) - England captures perfectly the exasperation we (Israelis) all felt with Barak at the time, when it seemed the only thing he ever did about terror atrocities was to fling missiles at empty buildings after warning Arafat in advance where they would strike. And the Hebrew expressions and place names used in the story are genuine enough to work for an Israeli reader.
But far more important that that is England's style. This guy sure knows how to set those drinks down on the table! Right from the beginning, the story grabs you, and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time waiting to see what happens next. This is a book to read through in one binge session, because you can forget about being able to put it down! Such fun!
In short - if you want to experience a gripping thriller set against an authentic Israeli historical backdrop, buy this now!
This story takes place in October 2000, long before the time frame of England's Shadow Warrior series. It revolves around two real events, a riot in the streets of Ramallah, killing two innocent Israeli reservists and the sinking of the USS Cole. I like reading stories where Mossad is the focal point and this is no exception. The main character is Code Named Ariel, which means Lion Of God. The original plan was for him to lead a team to rescue the reservists, but when they end up brutally killed in Ramallah, Ariel and his team operative Tzipporah, find out who is responsible for ordering the killings.
This is listed as Episode 1, which was a really good idea, because there is only so much you can put in a novella, when you are limited on word count. Well Stephen sure leaves us with a cliff hanger here!
