Perfect for fans of Nelson DeMille and Daniel Silva

Ex-Israeli operative turned private investigator, Dotan Naor—to settle a bet—agrees to locate the missing son of former acquaintance, now ruthless Israeli arms merchant, Willy Mizrachi. Willy, who does not hesitate to sell killing machines to the most heinous players in the world, is desperate to find his only son, Itiel, who has headed to an ashram in the Himalayas. The Himalayas are also host to groups of young Israelis who have completed their mandatory military service—a sort of rite of passage. Now, those innocent kids are being hunted down by violent terrorists. India and the disputed Kashmir region between India and Pakistan is familiar territory to Dotan, as he searches for Itiel and for the source of these heinous attacks on Israeli youth. Unwilling to leave this quest in the hands of Dotan, Willy also travels to India, where he is murdered in Delhi, triggering international repercussions capable of ripping the world apart at one of its most dangerous flashpoints. Nothing is as it seems in this region of the world. Betrayal reigns everywhere. But love, in its purest form, does manage to shine through in this story of brutal international corruption.

    June 11, 2018
    Zur makes his U.S. debut with an intriguing if flawed thriller. Dotan Naor, a retired Israeli operative, specializes in rescuing fellow countrymen who have gotten into trouble abroad. After Israeli arms dealer Willy Mizrachi is found beheaded in Delhi, Naor, who has just returned to Israel from Mumbai, is visited by the police, who want to know why Naor’s name was in the dead man’s appointment book. Naor doesn’t reveal that Mizrachi beseeched him a year earlier for help with Mizrachi’s son, who gave up a promising legal career to join a Buddhist monastery in northern India. When Naor learns that the murder coincided with a series of terror attacks in India targeting Israeli tourists, he agrees to return to that country to investigate. He’s joined by intelligence agent Maya Kfir, who, conveniently for Naor’s libido, happens to be a knockout. Zur doesn’t make suspension of disbelief easy, especially after saddling his lead with a backstory that includes a martial arts match against Vladimir Putin at China’s legendary Shaolin Monastery. Readers with a tolerance for genre clichés will be satisfied. Agent: Murray Weiss, Catalyst Literary Management.

    Get out your crime-fiction passport. In this first of the Dotan Naor thrillers to be published in English, the former Israeli operative turned PI makes his way through India and the disputed Kashmir region between India and Pakistan in search of his friend's killer, the victim's son, and the violent terrorists who are targeting young Israelis in the Himalayas. The characters are complex, and the plot is fast paced, but the author also uses the exotic locale to good advantage, with image-rich language sure to be savored by readers who enjoy setting as much as story. Real-life flavor with appeal for fans of Daniel Silva.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
