Recensioner i media
Fast action, clever plotting and a Bond-esque lead character who drives the narrative forward at every turn . . . This is high octane spy action with a genuinely fascinating ability to take us behind the scenes of a modern intelligence service. -- M.C. Scott An amazing achievement... This thriller captures the zeitgeist with enormous power . . . Equal parts suspense and entertainment, you simply can't put it down. -- Ilan Lukatch * Radio Tel-Aviv. * Best read... Alfon knows so much about the ways the Israeli intelligence corps work that it adds a lot to the enjoyment of the book... His characters are great, and the plot is full of suspense and very fast-paced. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. -- Adi Shtamberger * Jerusalem Post. * Dov Alfon has written a first-class thriller, utterly knowing, richly detailed and rigorously researched . . . A wonderful book, riveting and ingenious. I couldn't put it down till the final twist. -- Gal Perl * Al-Hakavenet. * If you want to sleep during your flight, do *not* buy this thriller at the airport! The pages fly by themselves and prey on my thoughts long after I landed. -- Haim Hecht * Radio Kol-Rega. * The best Israeli thriller ever written. -- Meira Barnea-Argaman * TV Channel 2. * Best novel of the year... John Le-Carre and scores of Mossad agents can happily retire and leave room for Dov Alfon and his Unit 8200 wizards, who change the shape of espionage thrillers with enormous talent, depth and intensity. A masterpiece. -- Shay Golden * Makor Rishon. * Thriller of the year... I'm in love with this duo of intelligence officers, they'll never let me down. -- Galit Dahan-Carlibach * NRG. * Alfon breaks the limits of previous generation thrillers and creates the 21st century spy novel, sleek, highly political, funny, romantic and unforgettable. -- Talma Admon * Maariv. * Alfon takes over from John Le Carre and the old masters of the spy novel. -- Guy Horowitz * Haaretz. * I can't remember any previous Israeli thriller so brilliant, lean and sleek . . . A novel for our post-truth times, totally believable and impossible to put down. -- Aharon Lapidot * Israel Hayom. * A genuinely thrilling espionage novel . . . Chinese gangsters, French detectives, Russian models and charismatic, backstabbing Israeli spies, all locked into a brilliantly choreographed danse macabre. -- John Williams * Mail on Sunday. * Rarely can so much action have been crammed into a story of espionage covering just one day . . . Dov Alfon, a former intelligence officer and the editor-in-chief of an Israeli newspaper, knows about secrets and how to tell stories . . . Breathlessly exciting. -- Marcel Berlins * The Times. * So self-possessed and jaw-clinchingly good . . . escapes the ghetto of genre fiction through some great writing. Highly recommended -- Greg Dixon * NZ Listener * Some terrific action sequences in this fiendishly complicated yet pacey thriller. Readers who relish technical detail will appreciate the wealth of information about the Israeli intelligence services, cheek-by-jowl with political shenanigans, Chinese gangsters and mysterious blonds -- Laura Wilson * Guardian * This is deeply enjoyable espionage thriller with plenty of juicy details about modern spycraft, and although he is sometimes as sardonic and cynical as John Le Carre, Alfon's style is light and relaxed. He invests his heroes, Bond-esque spymaster Colonel Zeev Abadi and his beautiful, brilliant deputy Lt Oriana Talmor, with his own agreeable sense of humour . . . A spy novel with lead characters that are genuinely likeable. -- Jake Kerridge * Daily Telegraph. * A timely addition to the canon of international thrillers ... races along with pace and verve to a satisfying ending -- Adam LeBor * Financial Times *
