The Jerusalem Assassin

"The Jerusalem Assassin" by Avraham Azrieli

In his new spy-political thriller, “The Jerusalem Assassin” (ISBN 1460906551), author Avraham Azrieli takes readers back to the tumultuous days of 1995, when Palestinian terror and right-wing opposition in Israel put the peace process on the defense.

The memorable cast of characters from “The Jerusalem Inception” returns to action in this fast-paced thriller. In a series of dramatic twists and turns, the story takes readers to Paris, Zurich, Amsterdam and Tel Aviv, where events reach a boiling point with the assassination of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin—a traumatic event that, like the JFK assassination, has left many with lingering questions.

“This is the first novel to tackle the Rabin assassination,” Azrieli says. “It offers a rare window into the workings of the two main Israeli spy agencies—the international Mossad and the domestic Shin Bet.”

Reminiscent of spy novels from Daniel Silva and Ken Follett, “The Jerusalem Assassin” aims to thrill readers with the invisible side of history. “Azrieli has a unique ability to interweave fiction and fact that not only intrigues but also educates the reader. Through the author’s careful attention to every last detail, readers find themselves building a relationship with the complex characters, strongly feeling their emotions.…The story of human suffering and redemption shines through.”—Pacific Book Review.

“Drawn straight from the headlines of living, breathing history, the action in “The Jerusalem Assassin,” both entertains and enlightens the reader, an impressive task that not many authors can achieve.” —Apex Reviews.

“The Jerusalem Assassin” is available for sale online at and other channels.

About the Author: Avraham Azrieli served as an officer in the IDF before graduating from Columbia Law School in New York. His other novels include “The Jerusalem Inception,” “The Masada Complex,” and “Christmas for Joshua.”
