Reviews Lone Wolf in Jerusalem

  • Dave
    Diskin’s Lone Wolf is a fictionalized account of pre-Independence Israel and the armed struggle against the British, who for political reasons, were determined to keep thousands of Holocaust survivors who had no home left in the charred ruins of Europe from returning to their ancestral homeland. This story will certainly remind readers of Uris’ classic novel Exodus, but it tells a very different story.The main protagonist of the novel is Davi...

    When I saw this book on Net Galley, it intrigued me. I had read books taking place in British Mandate Palestine, but I hadn't seen this sort of focus before. Since it was a Read Now book, I was able to download it right away. So when publicist Wiley Saichek asked me if I wanted to review it, I said that I already had a copy for review.Although Lone Wolf in Jerusalem is primarily a thriller, I find myself wanting to discuss characters. I loved Sho...

    I read this book, cover to cover, in one transatlantic flight. I can count on one hand the number of books that I devoured so quickly. The author, Ehud Diskin did an incredible job of research and successfully recreated and ipmeccable scenery of the last days of the British mandate in Jerusalem. The storyline is chanting, full of action and adrenalin. The hero, David is fighting the young nation's fight for independence, on his terms, and fightin...

    This was a hard book to read in more ways than one for me. A good book in that it covers a lot of information about a time and facts that most people, myself included know either nothing or very little about, and that is sad and wrong!The "novel" parts were often not to my liking but the sheer volume of information made this well worth the read!I actually ended up with two copies of this book! An e-copy from the Publisher and NetGalley to review ...

    This book gave me three things: mystery, suspense and vengeance.Well, if you are David, then you know what it means to lose everyone you love at the hand of the Nazis and you also know a thing or two about stealth and attacking your enemy. Better yet, you know how to blend in without losing sight of your goal.Thanks for the eARC Netgalley, I got to be in David's world, to fight his battles and the author made sure I held my breath every time he w...
  • Jon
    From a historical perspective, combined with Diskin's military background, this combined to make a period thriller that was difficult to put down. The character development of David and Shoshana car the book. The emotions of the moment, the history are clear. The dialogue between characters seems almost too simple at time but the pace of the story is riveting.
