After a lifetime of bringing Nazi war criminals to justice, the Mossad operative is once again fighting those who wish to study his superhuman body. The self-sacrificing secret agent must rely on the help of his friends to finally free himself of the physical and emotional scars of his past.


My Review

It 's a gripping thriller, adventurous, with many compelling characters and an engaging and well built storyline.
Jackie Walls and Jeremy Cobin are a young American couple from New Jersey. He has a shop, she is a police officer and they have a beautiful baby girl, Annie. During  their trip very adventurous in Europe they have known Eytan Morgestern that helped and rescued them. Jackie and Jeremy have not heard from him until he reappears in their lives to save them again from an attacks. This time offers them to join him in his fight. During World War II, in Poland, he was victim of an experiment: now they're looking because they want to study him and maybe try to repeat the experiment on other people. Their team also belong  Eli Karman, an old man, Greg, responsible for the security of Jackie and Jeremy, and Avi, a charming doctor. Can they defend and save him?
The various characters in this novel are many and all well characterized. Eytan is a brave man although mysterious, is an Israeli agent, his past  not know anyone with accuracy. He was deported to a camp in Poland during the war and they underwent him an experiment. Jackie is a brave woman, with a strong sense of duty. She loves her family but also loves her work which performs in an excellent way.
It 's a thriller adventurous and exciting, full of twists, suspense and mystery. In this story, nothing is missing: there is conspiracy, sects and secret alliance. attacks, war strategies, experiments and can not miss a bit of love and romance. It 's very well written, with a style and a language simple and essential, also the various descriptions are minimalist and effective, enrich the text but does not make it heavy and boring. The pace is very fast and captivating: the history alternate continuously past and present, and often changes the city in which the action takes place. We pass continuously from Poland of 1942/43, to the contemporary New Jersey, through present and wartime London and with escape briefly to Tel-Aviv.
It's the third book in the series "Consortium Thriller", can be read as a stand-alone but for an easier and understandable reading, I recommend reading the series in order.
I recommend it to those who love thrillers and novels full of action and adventure
I have received this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
