Publisher's Summary

LA Times best-seller. Translated into seven languages. "Kaplan is up there with the best." (Clive Cussler, author)

In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed-out Agent Ari Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago to smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto. Or so he thinks. 

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be falling in love with Ari, but she is asking too many questions. His communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The operation is only hours away, and everything seems awry. 

Desperate to succeed, Ari might risk everything. Even his life. 

Soon to be a major motion picture.

Gabriel Allon Had better Look Out!

As I began listening to the story, I thought that was a "prequel", to a "Gabriel Allon" story written by Silva using a "Nom De Plume". If you are a fan of Daniel Silva's character "Gabriel Allon", you will find that Howard Kaplan's "Ari Ben-Sion", is a spy who's personal inner conflicts,regrets and desires, makes him a very human version of "Allon".
Couple a great story and George Guidall's terrific presentation, I coudn't stop listening.
