With the help of Israeli physicist Rachel Ravid, Landover is successful, but together the two discover that it is not the Israeli government that will profit from Sherbatov's gold, but a small cadre of Mossad Army officers, with the CIA deeply involved. These powerful men will do anything to keep their secretincluding terminating Landover and Rachel before they can go public with their astonishing story of greed and lust for power. •This is a brilliant debut from a top New York Times journalist. •Count on Farnsworth's New York Times contacts for great publicity.
Rezension: Add New York Times writer Clyde Farnsworth to the ranks of foreign correspondents who enter the thriller world with all their information-gathering equipment turned up to full volume. In Shadow Wars, Farnsworth invents a Russian physicist who discovers a way to make the ancient alchemists' dream of turning lead into gold come true. But his anti-Semitic superiors reject his theories, so Dmitry Sherbatov sneaks away to Israel to continue his work. A feud within the Israeli secret service soon brings the CIA and the Iraqis into the picture. Farnsworth's journalistic abilities work to keep the story credible, while his fictional talents have a field day with scenes of stealth and action.
