Praise for the author’s The English German Girl:

‘Absolutely compelling’ – Sarah Crown, Guardian

‘Well-researched and very moving’ – The Times

‘Rings with such authenticity . . . his research is formidable’ – The Melbourne Age

Disaffected ex-Mossad agent, Uzi, works as a security guard and low-level drug dealer in London. Uzi gets the chance to expose the ruthlessness of his former employers by giving the details of a top-secret assassination operation to WikiLeaks – a story so damaging to the Israeli government that an opposition party is prepared to pay to ensure WikiLeaks gets the scoop. But once it’s out there, Uzi will be a marked man . . .
