Ostrovsky is not American; however, anyone who takes the time to study these books, including the roman a clef LION OF JUDAH, will realize that he has presented the intellectual means for Americans to discern what is only now appearing on the web under the disturbing website [...]
LION OF JUDAH is a fictionalized account of what Ostrovsky could not say otherwise. He states this in one of his books and in a rare interview. I was expecting the dreary pastiche of most spy novels. I found myself reading it for the details I knew were overlooked in the real-time reporting of the world events he recounts.
The Caveat mentioned in the title of my review belongs to the writer's craft. Ostrovsky ignores the professional writer's rule that you don't advance a story in your character's quotes. That said, he no doubt felt he had no option. Ostrovsky was fighting against time in the early 90s to get his story out before the Mossad figured out a way to eliminate him. Staying in the public eye is one way to keep yourself alive.
He finished writing his three books over a decade ago. In 1997, the Mossad set out to bankrupt and ruin him financially. [Search Google for an article he wrote in a US-based Middle East journal.] I gather he is now doing what he always wanted to do, which is paint. He is an artist.
Ostrovsky's books should be critical reading for every anchor intoning on national TV and Cable. White House pool reporters should be forced to have Ostrovsky's valuable insight in the arsenal of their thinking patterns.Read more ›
