Mossad Agent Cobra by Dov Nardimon Book Review

Are you into books about spy vs. spy? Do you like books about espionage and mystery?
 I like movies about such things, but I've never really read too many books of the sort. I decided to give this book a chance though.

Title: Mossad Agent Cobra (International Mystery & Conspiracy Book 1)

Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense


Nisim Kobarsky, a high ranking Mossad agent named "Cobra", finishes a long and nerve-racking period of service in Syria. His operators send him on a low-key mission that will allow him some rest: he assumes the identity of Pedro Tariki, an Argentinean of Syrian origin, and studies biology at the Sorbonne in Paris but his priority is to form connections with the leaders of the revolutionary Muslim movements, which have flourished under the intellectual liberalism France has always cherished. 

Cobra exceeds all expectations. He soon becomes a good friend of Sergey Ismailov, a Muslim, Tajikistan-born, Soviet officer, who proves to be an excellent source of intelligence. Cobra's French sweetheart, Denise is unaware of his true identity. His cover story is perfect. 

Then the predator becomes the prey as the tables turn. A willing hostage of the Islamic revolution in Iran, Ismailov concocts a diabolical scheme that will earn him fame and glory, in which the unsuspecting Cobra plays an active part. Should the plan work, it would result in the deaths of tens of thousands of Israelis. 

Mossad agent Cobra is the story of a head-on collision between two lone wolves, both captives of their principles, both highly trained specialist professionals. The plot takes the reader across many countries, from the crumbling Soviet Republics, through Tehran, Paris, Syria, Buenos Aires and Israel. Global Jihad serves as the inspiration for this fictional scenario that is chillingly probable.

My Thoughts on This Book

This book was long. Not that I mind reading long books. I've read several but this book just seemed to go on and on and on. It took me longer than usual to get through it. Now, please don't misunderstand- I did like this book for the most part. However, there were a couple of points here and there where there was just too much going on---it lagged a little in the beginning.

I guess that I've just never been able to really get into details about war, military terms, and history...and believe me, there is A LOT of history in this book.

Agent Cobra is an incredible agent. He's the best of the best. Until...he unsuspectingly becomes part of another agent's despicable plan...How does he get through it all in the end?

Once you get halfway through it, it starts getting really exciting. There were so many twists throughout the book that caught me off guard. A lot of action, a lot of mystery.
It was definitely worth my patience. Toward the end, I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen to Cobra next. I read it till the very end as was very happy that I completed it. In the end, the book really did tell a great story. 
I still can't believe the turn that the story took. Everything that ends up happening to both Cobra and Ismailov caught me off guard. I didn't expect any of it and that made me like the book even more.
The author did a wonderful job on this book. Very realistic scary scenarios and great character dynamics throughout this book.
Yes I recommend.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new.
