Author Aviezer Golan seeks no answers, rather tries telling an absorbing story that only begins with the mishap's participants entrance into 14 years of incarceration. The book is actually most poignant when looking inside the Egyptian prisons. If De Tocqueville was right about analyzing a nation through its jails, then those in Egypt have a strange story to tell. Though jailed with many petty criminals and murderers, the Mishap's conspirators also meet political prisoners - both far-right Islamists of "The Brotherhood" and various leftists who had run afoul of the Nasser regime in its many political shifts. Prison conditions, like politics make strange allies and leftist Egyptians who befriended the imprisoned Jews at first, turned against them when politics shifted in their direction. The hardcore Islamists, though taught to abhor the Jews as a matter of eternal religion, forge a more durable bond with the Jews, admittedly not one that can be expected to change things outside of prisons. All in all, "Operation Susanah" isn't a story you'll forget.
