I could really get into the skin of Nikki Sinclair , a beautiful lesbian superpy besotted with memories of her Israeli lover Dvora Bar Zahavi, and sent on dangerous missions around the world for MI5 while battling prejudice against her for her homosexuality, her past demons and her dedication to serving her country.
the lesbian love scenes were tasteful and quite exqusite, while the traumatic rape Nikki undergoes five times during the book is disturbing and heatbreaking.
What makes Nikki so endearing is that she is a combination of both toghness and vulnerability, she is not some cartoon superheo
Her story is in many cases a sad one from her rejection by her parents because of her being a lesbian (the birthday and Christmas cards she sends them even are unreturned) to the way M15 forces her into the beds of men even after her traumatic rape.
Nikki met Dvora during her training in 1973 when a lot of countries still cooperated freely with Israel before the years of isolation imposed on Israel by perfidious enemies.
the heart of the novel revolves around the race to obtain the microfilm details of Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussein's nuclear plans to destroy Israel which culminated in 1981 in the Israeli raid that destroyed Saddam's Osirak nuclear plant
I found myself biting my nails for both heroines, cheering for them (especially when Nikki kills one of her tormentors and rapists, also being one of Saddam's key men at Osirak)
Apart from that is great to read fiction that gives a sympathetic portrayal of Israel, in an age when it all so fashionable to demonize that tiny country struggling for survival.
The danger Iraq's Osirak nuke plant created for Israel was very real,Saddam Hussein WAS brutal enough to use chem weapons/poisonous gases on Iraq's own people as we saw,Israel did herself and our world a big big favor by taking out his nukes...And the whole story is written on this backdrop..Israel has saved millions of lives by taking out Osirak..And the novel based on this real incident,shows much of how various state spy agencies interact,or at least interacted during that time..And shows us the complexities of their relations..
The other interesting aspect of the book was the dilemma lesbian agents have to face while working for these agencies.My heart was broken for Nikki Sinclair,the main character of the book as she has to sleep with men to gain intelligence.She is a strong willed character and she is very REAL in a sense,she is vulnerable,not invincible,and that makes you root for her!Her ordeal is heartbreaking,but her will to prevail is very strong,as she goes through her services as an agent for the UK(Britain),she experiences everlasting love form a fellow Israeli spy Dvora only to get her heart broken again and again,just to bounce back!!Read more ›
British agent, Nikki Sinclair, is on an intelligence mission in South Africa. The question to be answered is- `is the assignment a cover up job, or is it genuine and crucial to the British government and security'?
Sinclair finds herself deep into an extremely dangerous undercover operation. Her position is fraught with danger and she fears for her life.
When Sinclair meets up with her ex lover, the lover she's been unable to get out of her mind and is still deeply in love with, she is easily persuaded back into her bed. Unfortunately, Sinclair's Mossad lover may not be all she seems, causing Sinclair to confront her demons and question her sexuality, integrity and whether she is still cut out for her job. Sinclair's most pressing concern is getting out of Kinshasa in one piece.
Sinclair suffers a brutal assault carried out by another agent. She's badly hurt physically and mentally and is forced to take time out of the field and sit behind a desk. She hates it.
When Sinclair is browbeaten into accepting another mission, before she's mentally ready, she finds the assignment is her absolute worst nightmare. She is transported to a nuclear plant in Iraq as an undercover agent. It's here that Sinclair has to fight hard to escape her demons, her passion for her ex lover and the worst nightmare of all, the sex crazed Pierre Harcourt.
Sinclair is at an all time low. Who can she trust? Her own side have betrayed her, her lover left her for dead after betraying her. Maybe it's best to trust only herself and her own instincts. But, can she even trust herself?
This is Jaye Rothman's debut novel. It's a fast paced, action packed, thrilling spy story.Read more ›
