Israeli secret service agents are at the heart of these new thrillers. In Yishai Sarid’s Limassol, an agent under cover poses as a novelist to ensnare the son of a Palestinian poet, a wanted terrorist suspect. In Jake Simons’ The Pure, a renegade Mossad operative arrives in London to wreak revenge on his former employers. A journey into a secret world, and a very human light on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
