Agent 10483 carried out his missions perfectly. Too perfectly. When a top agent in the Israeli Organization receives a disturbing notebook written by the mysterious 10483, supposedly dead for years, he realizes that something went terribly wrong.
Is 10483 a psychopath who outwitted his handlers for years? Or was he manipulated by his superiors to carry out the most monstrous assassinations in the history of the state of Israel? And why was he the only agent to receive three envelopes with targeted killing assignments instead of one, as part of a lethal and top secret operation? Was he responsible for locking up his victims and staging their deaths, or was he himself merely the victim of a brilliant scientist whose cutting-edge discoveries enabled her to manipulate his brain waves?
Offering a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into the technology of high-level intelligence operations, Nir Hezroni s dark thriller is a chilling exploration of the mind of a master killer."

Hezronis superior thriller debut will send chills up the spines of even jaded genre fans. Blowback from a complex Israeli intelligence operation plotted by an entity known simply as the Organization has murderous consequences a decade later. Extracts from the notebook of the man who was recruited by the Organization and known as agent 10483 reveal him to have been a paranoid child, who routinely measured the level of liquids in his familys refrigerator to make sure that no poison was added to them while he was asleep. This notebook implicates 10483s former superiors in a mass murder in Canada in 2006; in 2016, one of them, Avner Moyal, receives the notebook from a law firm that held it for 10 years. As Moyal works his way through 10483s recollections, he learns the truth about the agents activities. Meanwhile, the reader learns that someone currently poses a threat to the Organizations leaders. Hezroni maintains a high level of suspense as he expertly toggles between past and present en route to the heart-stopping conclusion. (Apr.)
