Review

‘Bishop is a fine and economical teller of complicated stories. He sets up nicely the background to the Stern Gang's activities rooted in Jewish hostility to the British authorities … the tale of the hunt is very well done … though the bloody end is never in doubt the chase itself is exciting’ The Times‘Bishop has done a wonderful job of making intelligible the labyrinthine politics of the Palestine Mandate in the Forties … Compelling … reads like the most gripping of thrillers … A superb book that shines light on one of the murkier episodes of British imperial rule, and that confirms Bishop's status as one of our finest World War II historians’ Mail on Sunday‘A rousing detective thriller’ Evening Standard‘Patrick Bishop's excellent new book ‘The Reckoning’ is the enthralling story of this blood vendetta … Bishop's detective story offers a vivid portrait of the fraught, doomed world of the Palestine Mandate’ Daily Telegraph‘Bishop's gripping ‘The Reckoning’ [is] about the fatal shooting and subsequent martyrdom of the Zionist freedom fighter (or terrorist – take you pick) Avraham Stern. As characters go Stern is compelling in a car-crash kind of way, Bishop … sums him up quite marvellously as 'a dandy aesthete with visions of sacrificial violence’ Spectator‘Gripping and masterly … the story of how Morton finally tracked (Stern) down is riveting and, in Mr Bishop's hands, reads like a great thriller … This fascinating and absorbing book explains how Stern and others are now celebrated in Israel and remembered with war memorials as martyrs of the independent struggle’ Country Life‘Riveting … Bishop has very skilfully mined new and rarely used sources … [its] gripping narrative reads like a thriller’ Literary Review‘Well-told and well-researched re-examination of the Stern legend … as Bishop explains in his thrilling narrative, Stern’s days were numbered the moment his group launched an assassination campaign against the British’ Standpoint
