A Trap in Paris is an extremely interesting thriller.
Uzi Eilam is a "scholar and a warrior" in the purest sense of these words, and this book authentically reflects his great knowledge and rich military experience. The story that Eilam spins is of course fictional, but he is able to present it as an authentic chain of events that takes place in the "real world". The plot is alive and vibrant, because similar events have transpired and been recorded both in Iran and the European countries in which the narrative transpires.
This thriller is not only a narrative literary work, but I also found it to contain important messages.
Danny Yatom, major general in the military reserves and former head of the Israeli Mossad
Uzi Eilam is one of my favorite authors. He exceeds himself in his new thriller, A Trap in Paris, an un-put-down-able adrenaline rush that manages at the same time to be cerebral, technologically impeccable (Mr. Eilam is a former chairman of Israel's Atomic Energy Commission and Chief Scientist of Israel's Ministry of Defense), and very much on the money regarding political events, both current ones and, no doubt, those soon to come.
Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and The Lion's Gate
Not since John Le Carre (as witness my book-shelves, I have read just about all he wrote) have l so much enjoyed reading a thriller. The fact that yours is so closely linked to the contemporary political scene contributes to the excitement.
Felicitations, bravo, and thanks.

It is unusual for a general in the paratroop corps to also be a farmer, a scientist, a poet, a musician, and a carpenter. But this is what makes Eilam's book a key for understanding the uniqueness of the Israeli military and also a human success story.

This book is an excellent realpolitik history about Israel in the European arena. Uzi Eilam embodies the best mixture of military, science, politics, and cultural life.
Gen. Paul Müller, Major General ret., former Deputy Commander, Swiss Armed Forces.
For fifty years Uzi Eilam has been on the front lines of the struggle for Israel as a soldier, an advisor, and a shrewd manager of technological development. His book is a thriller with a strong dose of managerial know-how. A Trap in Paris is inspiring and entertaining.

Iran is leading an alarming effort to support terror organization worldwide. Iran is developing weapons of mass destruction, long range missiles, and nuclear weapons. The National Revolutionary Guards are the long arm of the Ayatollahs' regime, and all of us should recognize this threat to the world.
