"**The beautiful end to Edward Whittemore’s Jerusalem Quartet: The impressive tale of an Israeli agent who infiltrates Syrian intelligence, keying victory within the Six Day War**
Yossi is a perfect agent for the Mossad—an Iraqi Jew, an idealist, and an enthralling loner, fluent in Arab dialects. Tajar, an excellent agent, recruits and manages Yossi, code-named “the Runner.” hence starts off the longest-running and such a lot winning operation within the historical past of Israeli intelligence. Yossi’s disguise is Halim, a Syrian businessman who has again domestic from Buenos Aires and whose appeal evokes high-level friendships. His recognition results in a chance that he can’t refuse: Tajar turns into a double agent infiltrating Syrian intelligence.
Meanwhile, within the barren region oasis of Jericho, Abu Musa, an Arab patriarch, and Moses the Ethiopian, meet on a daily basis over video games of shesh-besh and glasses of Arak to reflect on historical past and humanity. We know about the friendship of Yossi’s son, Assaf, an Israeli soldier badly wounded through the Six Day battle, and Yousef, a tender Arab instructor who, in aid of the Palestinian reason, comes to a decision to stay as an exile within the Judean wilderness.
* Jericho Mosaic *is the ultimate quantity of the Jerusalem Quartet, which starts with *Sinai Tapestry*, *Jerusalem Poker*, and *Nile Shadows*. Steeped within the background and panorama of the center East, it's a tale of idealism and goals, desire and depression, and life’s moments of breathtaking beauty.
