Review: Jerusalem Assassin
Jerusalem Assassin by Avraham Azrieli
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Jerusalem Assassin by Avraham Azrieli is the sequel to The Jerusalem Inception. It is now thirty years later and things for the characters from the previous novel have settled down, but are about to flare up once again. Lemmy Gerster is now an agent for Elie Weiss, posing as a Swiss banker who is in position to take over for his father-in-law as president of the bank. Tanya is still working for Mossad, and Rabbi Gerster has maintained his status in his religious community, teaching Lemmy's best friend Benjamin all he needs to know to lead the congregation one day.
However, wheels are put into motion once again when it comes to the money that Elie had been trying to get his hands on since the end of WWII. With a mix of mystery, intrigue and international political suspense, this book has everything for those who want a fast paced thriller. Although this is a sequel, it still has enough information to read it as a stand alone novel. The combination of thrilling fiction and historical fact makes this a great read for anyone who like historical novels and those who just love a well written story.
