I'm glad that the characters are all realistic and have good backstories! A good backstory is absolutely necessary in my mind. Thank you for the review!

I like thriller novels, especially when they involve crime scenes and spies. I also love that the author tells the story in each character's perspective, which, again, adds up to my likings. Thanks for the review.

I like the idea of switching perspectives to keep it from becoming just another spy story. Seeing how the other side thinks and feels would be a nice change.

An espionage thriller following the story of Lara and Uri sounds like a nice read. The characters' great background stories and switching of the narrative perspective from one character to another remain a great advantage of this book. Not for me, though. Fans of this genre will greatly enjoy it. Thanks for your review.

A spy thriller highlighting both teamwork and trust while also having very detailed and descriptive characters. This book is rather intriguing. I love the fact that each character has a background story to them, it gives the reader a more relatable experience. I'd definitely try it.

A good book must have some elements that make it outstanding. "The 266-page novel has all it needs to make for an exciting read", That sure wets my appetite. Jack Winnick's thriller novel sure taste interesting judging from this explicit review. It got me interested. Great one!

Very intriguing story I must say. The fate of the United States of America lies in the hands of an FBI agent and computer whiz, and a Mossad field agent. The book being well edited is a plus and the background stories was well written. The author has really done a great job putting this together. Congratulations on being the BOTD

For me, the most interesting genre of novels is romance and terrorist attacks. Both in movies and written works, the conflicts between Iran and U.S is being demonstrated. Thus, since I enjoy reading it than watching it, novels such as this could be interesting, especially considering it from the vantage of this thrilling review.

When will terrorism stop? How can human beings be killing their fellow human beings for fun? Thanks to people like Uri who are there to detect their activities. Thank you for the review. You did a good job.

This sounds like a page-turner. This book about terrorism is not for me but for those who are interested in politics, spying, and terrorism. Congrats on the book of the day. Great review.
