Investigative reporter Ben Teller pursues a disgruntled Air Force veteran, who is determined to punish America for the commercialization of Memorial Day. Their conflict straddles the fine line separating right from wrong and turns into a fierce match between cutting-edge technology and human resilience. The unraveling series of dramatic events lead up to a climactic confrontation at the Gettysburg National Battlefield. Praise for Avraham Azrieli's earlier novels: The Mormon Candidate - "Plotted like a cinematic thriller, Azrieli has come up with a very powerful novel. At work here is his extraordinary magic in making his readers as eager as his protagonist in uncovering the truth and thus effectively creating pervasive fear and suspense. Sure to keep you up late against your better judgment. Don't say I didn't warn you." Norm Goldman, Examiner. The Jerusalem Inception - "Beautifully and superbly narrated." Bookpleasures. "Boldly realistic plotlines and genuine, well-developed characters. Highly recommended " Yahoo News/Politics. "Protagonist Jerusalem Gerster is the quintessential recruit." NY Daily News. The Jerusalem Assassin - "Action-packed escapade ... memorable cast of characters ... pages turn as fast as the plot twists and locales shift, taking the reader from Paris to Zurich to Amsterdam to Tel Aviv." Jewish News. Thump - "A light-hearted romp through sexual proclivities ... the characters are lovable ... the irreverence is delightful. Thought-provoking. Interesting. Unconventional. Recommended " U.S. Review of Books. Christmas for Joshua - "In its own gentle way, the book is as much a page-turner as Azrieli's thrillers - pulling the reader into complex personal and familial conflicts." The Jewish Journal. The Masada Complex - "Brims with gritty authenticity ... a genuine treat " David Liss, author of Conspiracy of Paper, winner of Edgar. "Riveting portrayal of global intrigue " Stella Pope Duarte, author of If I Die in Juarez, winner of the 2009 American Book Award.
