New Book: Sirens over Jerusalem

Michelle Mazel

Another dramatic book by Ms. Mazel. 

Michelle Mazel was born in France. A graduate of the Institute for Political Science of Paris and of the Law school of that city, she was a Fullbright scholar to the United States. She married an Israeli diplomat and for forty years, until he retired in 2004, she went with him from one interesting country to another, witnessing Sadat's assassination live in Cairo and the fall of Ceausescu in Rumania.

She took to writing, becoming a frequent contributor to "The Jerusalem Post" and to the now defunct "Israel Scene" magazine. She has taken part in a number of collective works such as the Macmillan illustrated dictionary and concordance of the Bible and the Grolier Holocaust encyclopedia. She is a regular contributor to the Jewish Political Study Review. Her first thriller, "The Jericho Enigma" originally published in Hebrew, and in French and is now available in English on Amazon Kindle. It was followed by "Sirens over Jerusalem" also published in Hebrew and in French and due to be available shortly in English on Amazon Kindle. The third Alfassi mystery is scheduled for the summer of 2014.

The following is just a "taste" of her latest book:

"January 1991. Operation Desert Shield has morphed into Desert Storm. Saddam Hussein is launching scud missiles towards Israel. A beautiful top model is about to leave for London and the wedding of the year when fate intervenes. Alfassi spending a blameless day in the house of a friend finds himself suspected of murder. Ably seconded by a refreshing heroine, the Shabak man will need all his skills to best an elusive assassin who run rings around the police. Meanwhile, in faraway Iraq, a wounded Mossad agent is trying to make his way home. From Bagdad to Jerusalem, heroes and villains are engaged in a race against time while bombs are falling and sirens are announcing yet another raid. As usual, Alfassi’s dry wit is here to lighten the most dramatic episode until the startling grand finale."

Ms. Mazel is an excellent writer and her work uses her past experiences and her knowledge of the region to develop a story that grabs you on page one and keeps you reading to the final page.  One cannot put down the book.
