Agent 10483 was the best agent The Organization had on its books. Until he went rogue, then went off grid. Now he's back, bringing with him the ghost of operations where ends justified means and determined on gaining revenge by his own unique means

Chilling is word that tends to be overused in book reviews, yet nothing else seems to fit Nir Hezroni’s deeply unsettling debut novel. He takes his readers into a brilliant, but disordered mind in a way that is as convincing, as it is shocking.

The cold cynicism of the intelligence industry, where anything goes so long as it gets results and can be plausibly denied later, is described with disturbing accuracy. You don't have to be a sociopath to get ahead in the spying game; but it sure helps.

Three Envelopes is by no means an ordinary espionage thriller, much of what happens is as outlandish as the antics of Bond or Bourne, but it is always underpinned by awareness that the collateral damage incurred involves innocent lives being wrecked beyond repair. As a picture of how far a country is willing to go to guarantee its security in a threatening world it is all too awfully convincing.

This is a book that will absorb and alarm its readers in equal measure. It establishes Nir Hezroni as an important new voice in writing about the murky world of the secret services.
