‘Hezroni’s plot revisits and builds on the events of his debut thriller, Three Envelopes. It also contains echoes of Richard Condon’s Korean War-era classic, The Manchurian Candidate, as well as, more contemporarily, the hit movie Get Out.’
Last InstructionsNir Hezroni
First there was Three Envelopes, critically acclaimed on publication – now the story of Israeli secret service operative Agent 10483 continues in Last Instructions
A psychopathic former Israeli spy, Agent 10483 is busy trying to shut down the spy organization he once worked for. At the same time, he is plotting his revenge on the individuals he deemed responsible for betraying him, and trying to hunt down a nuclear warhead.
It cannot end well.
Everyone wants to get their hands on him: the Organization, two assassins working for Herr Schmidt, who is also trying to get hold of the warhead, and Carmit, who has quite literally been messing with his brain.
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 a psychotic killer.
‘Hezroni, who has a background in military intelligence, makes the larger-than-life plot feel plausible and again excels in portraying the conscienceless 10483, who’s capable of relishing a breakfast of croissants and jam while he burns an Organization member alive. Thriller fans will be enthralled as well as disturbed.’
‘Last Instructions, like its predecessor, offers an arresting premise and plenty of darkness.’
‘This well-researched, fast-paced, and pertinent thriller will keep readers' attention from start to finish. Readers of all sorts – whether spy fiction fans, thriller aficionados, or book junkies looking for a fantastic read – will enjoy.’
