Book Review - Defection Games – Haggai Carmon

Saturday, June 1, 2013

According to the back cover this is the fifth book in The Dan Gordon Intelligence series. Also it is termed a “tradecraft book” which I take to mean that the author has taken episodes from his real life and created a totally fictional story around that episode. Yes, this author is an ex-intelligence officer as well as an international attorney! He is also an amazing writer in my opinion. I had never read this genre before, nor heard of it—for those of you who enjoy espionage and thrillers—this book is for you!


From the back of the book:

There’ a war being fought, but it’s just below the surface and away from the media’s gaze. It’s the civilized world against the theocratic pariah state of Iran — a race to stop their development of a nuclear weapon. These operations are intricate and conniving beyond the stretch of the imagination. The intelligence operatives know that changing loyalties, betrayal and treason are not the exception, they are the rule. In the cesspool of the covert intelligence war, there are no long-term loyalties, only immediate interests.

Dan Gordon, a former Mossad agent now contracted by the CIA, comes in. He is an indefatigable lone wolf, never safe from hostile moves even by those he should trust. He is undeterred, and hurdles he successfully overcomes are only preludes to new ones.

In a chase through Iran, Syria, Turkey, Paris, Rome and Dubai, Dan completes his mission successfully, keeping the intelligence officer’s 11th Commandment, “Thou shalt not get caught.” Enemy, friend—these shift daily. That’s why Dan must sleep with one eye open. Always.

About the Author:


Now as all of you know I normally give a short description of the author’s life—but in this case I am sending you to the website http://defectiongames.com/introduction/ - it will take you to the introduction, then there are tabs about the author-which he wrote-a tab where you can read the first chapter-a tab which will tell you what other books he has written. Then down below there is a trailer you can watch! I also found this site where you can find out even more about this author http://haggaicarmon.com/about/ —His life has been and truly is amazing!

This book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and on the author's sites!

I really like that you can purchase all these book reviews on line w/out going to those huge bookstores. Love the coffee, but those stores can get a bit overwhelming!!

This book sounds interesting.

Must be a good read for this book especially when it is based on a life story of an individual.

I never knew what tradecraft was, thank you for that. You really do read all types of books, this one would be great for my oldest son and husband. I will add it to my sons summer reading list.

Now this sounds really intriguing! I am going to have to add this to my long list of "to read". I love that you read so many different types of books. You have really introduced some books I haven't heard of before.

Love to read about a small preview about that book. So interesting to you for having so many times to read. I wish I could, if I won't let laziness overtakes me.
