Code Ezra
by Gay Courter
Publisher:  Houghton Mifflin Company
Copyright 1986

THE TIME:  April 1979

THE PLACE:  Toulon, France

THE ASSIGNMENT:  Destroy vital nuclear reactor parts bound for Iraq.

THE MAN IN CHARGE:  Eli Katzar, master spy and leader of the Ezra project

THE TEAM:  Three talented agents, all women

The mission succeeds, but at a terrible price.  With his discovery of the mutilated body of an esteemed Israeli scientist, Eli Katzar realizes that he has been betrayed by one of the women he has trusted for more than thirty years:  Aviva, the sabra who for years lived under cover in a hostile Arab nation and married the man Katzar chose as her co-conspirator; Lily, the Dutch survivor of the Holocausr whose cool blondeness hides her anger at the destruction of her family; and Charlotte, the wealthy American who has devoted her life to Israel -- and to Eli.  Himself under suspicion from his superiors, Katzar must now track down the traitor and clear his own name.

Gay Courter's chilling spy saga spans thirty tumultuous years of Israeli history and takes the reader on a spellbinding journey, from Alpine climbs to illegal flights over Egypt, from Parisian ateliers to the heart of a Palestine refugee camp, from London's West End to the bazaars of Baghdad, from ancient Jerusalem to contemporary New York.  Penetrating the core of that most secret of intelligence services, Israel's Mossad. Courter shows us its innermost workings, revealing the painstaking vetting and training of its agents and the intricate development of their covers.  As Courter weaves together the true and the imagined, we share the breathtaking anxieties of the Ezra team members in their double identities as lovers, wives, mothers -- and spies.

From the earthshaking explosions in France to the shattering psychological revelations at the conclusion, Code Ezra is a gripping tale of victory and defeat, passion and denial, betrayal and discovery, revenge and forgiveness, that will astonish as it entertains.
