The Damascus Cover (The Jerusalem Spy Series Book 1) By Howard Kaplan


Book Description:




In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed out agent Ari
Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago, to
smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto. Or so
he thinks.

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be
falling in love with Ari, but she is asking too many questions. His
communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The
operation is only hours away and everything seems awry.
Desperate to succeed, Ari might risk everything. Even his life.

Soon to be a major motion picture.

My Thoughts:

The Damascus Cover is a spy thriller which certainly holds your attention throughout.

Ari Ben-Sion is certainly a very intriguing character who I would have liked to have known more about, he is certainly a good agent that seems to have more values than most in his profession. Kim is also a very interesting character who to start with I felt quite sorry for. Ari kept her very much in the dark and her frustration and emotions very much came across through out the story.

There are certain characters that stood out to me more so for their courage and strength and I wished their characters had bigger rolls in the book than they did as they were such interesting characters.

Overall The Damascus Cover is a strong and steady read, I just felt for me it lacked the amount of action that I personally prefer when I read this genre of book. It does pick up pace towards the end and the last part of the story was exactly how I envisioned what this book would be like. It certainly ended on a high and I would certainly read more books by the author.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have awarded this book 3.5/5 stars.
