A Long Night in Paris by Dov Alfon

From a former Israeli intelligence officer, comes the most realistic, thrilling and authentic thriller of the year.

When an Israeli tech entrepreneur disappears from Charles de Gaulle airport with a woman in red, logic dictates youthful indiscretion.  But Israel is on a state of high alert nonetheless.  Colonel Zeev Abadi, the new head of Unit 8200’s autonomous Special Section, who just happens to be in Paris, also just happens to have arrived on the same flight.

For Commissaire Léger of the Paris Police coincidences have their reasons, and most are suspect.  When a second young Israeli is kidnapped soon after arriving on the same flight, this time at gunpoint from his hotel room, his suspicions are confirmed – and a diplomatic incident looms.

Back in Tel Aviv, Lieutenant Oriana Talmor, Abadi’s deputy, is his only ally, applying her sharp wits to the race to identify the victims and the reasons behind their abduction.  In Paris a covert Chinese commando team listens to the investigation unfurl and watches from the rooftops.  While by the hour the morgue receives more bodies from the river and the city’s arrondissements.

The clock has been set.  And this could be a long night in the City of Lights.

Peer & Press Reviews

Alfon breaks the limits of previous generation thrillers and creates the 21st century spy novel, sleek, highly political, funny, romantic and unforgettable.

Talma Admon, Maariv

Fast action, clever plotting and a Bond-esque lead character who drives the narrative forward at every turn…  This is high octane spy action.

Manda Scott, author of A Treachery of Spies

I can’t remember any previous Israeli thriller so brilliant, lean and sleek…  A novel for our post-truth times, totally believable and impossible to put down.

Aharon Lapidot, Israel Hayom
