To Order a Copy: E-BOOK OUTLETS: Amazon Kindle Barnes & Noble Nook Apple / iTunes Google Play   Brief Synopsis of Deborah Calling: Deborah’s father dreamed that, one day, she would become a prophet—a seemingly impossible dream for a woman in a patriarchal society. To see her father’s dream come true, Deborah made the cunning decision to become a man and sought out a mysterious elixirist who can turn women into men. Under the elixirist Kassite’s tutelage and training, Deborah learns the essential traits of masculinity and steadily grows stronger, building muscle and willpower. But Kassite requests something in return: he needs Deborah’s help to escape the tannery and return to his homeland. It is the beginning of another thrilling adventure through the desert—a cat and mouse chase between Deborah and her violent fiancé who still hunts her, a chance meeting with an ancient healer with a prophetic message, and a revelatory spiritual experience in an abandoned cave. As she continues on the path God has laid before her, Deborah witnesses the darkness that can take hold in the hearts and souls of men—evil that causes her to reflect on the wisdom, insight, and inspiration she has gained from the women in her life. Will becoming a man truly help her become a prophetess, or might there be another path? Visionary dreams, a mysterious eagle, and an extraordinary band of ex-slaves will help Deborah find the answer . . . and ultimately her calling. A riveting adventure tale derived from traditional biblical fiction, Deborah Calling imagines the life of one of the most famous figures from the Old Testament as she continues on her path to becoming a prophet.

It will have a special appeal for readers who are fascinated by the interaction of faith and political power.The Mormon Candidate - A Novel by: Avraham Azrieli publisher: CreateSpace Praise for The Mormon Candidate   “The Mormon Candidate is part thriller, part mystery, part love story, and part religious interrogation. Azrieli’s novel maintains an excellent balance […] keeping the reader engaged not only with the current mystery, but the life and progression of the protagonist’s life as well. Never a dull moment!” San Francisco Book Review. “Author Avraham Azrieli wades into controversial waters with his fifth novel, “The Mormon Candidate.” This is a thoroughly entertaining mystery that uses an interesting backdrop a religion with customs that are unusual to most readers. Several twists surprise the reader without seeming out of place and that is not an easy accomplishment. A well-written page-turner.” – Kel Kanady, San Jose Mercury. “Plotted like a cinematic thriller, Azrieli has come up with a very powerful novel accelerated by a fluid narrative style that is laced with some troubling undertones. At work here is his extraordinary magic in making his readers as eager as his protagonist in uncovering the truth and thus effectively creating pervasive fear and suspense. This is one yarn that is sure to keep you up late against your better judgement. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” – N. Goldman, The Examiner. “Azrieli unwinds the tale, tying together church intrigue, electoral politics and Mormon practice. His approach is even-handed, even as he deals with the delicate issue of posthumous baptism, anathema to many Jews and a controversial practice in the LDS church. In the end, Azrieli, like any novelist worth his words, ties up the loose ends neatly after taking the reader on an exciting chase. A well-conceived and timely read.” – V.

The Jerusalem Assassin

In the wake of the 1995 Oslo Peace Accords, a wave of Palestinian terror hits Jewish targets. Israel responds with a clandestine war in Paris, Zurich, and Tel Aviv. When a beautiful Mossad agent is critically wounded in Amsterdam, master spy Jerusalem Gerster pursues the attackers back to Israel, where he uncovers a sinister conspiracy to perpetrate an unprecedented national catastrophe—the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin.Jerusalem Assassin by: Avraham Azrieli publisher: CreateSpace Praise for The Jerusalem Assassin “Israeli spy novel provides thrills along with tremendous insights into dangers posed by right-wing extremists. As fast-paced and well plotted as any modern spy novel. Azrieli is so clever at constructing a very complex, but plausible plot – very difficult to put this book down. If you’re looking for a great summertime read, you won’t go wrong with this book.” – Bernei Bellan, The Jewish Post & News. “This book continues the drama of “The Jerusalem Inception,” also published in 2011. Reviewing the former book, I wrote that “Avraham Azrieli’s suspenseful action thriller is an engrossing read and compares favorably with the novels by John Le Carre, Tom Clancy, and Lee Child.” This sequel is far more exiting, and is arguably better than the novels of the aforementioned best-selling authors. This exciting novel should be made into a film.” – Israel Drazin, The Jewish Eye. “The sequel to Avraham Azrieli’s The Jerusalem Inception, The Jerusalem Assassin keeps readers on the edge of their seats as the author navigates through the twists and turns of religious zeal, political missteps, intense human emotions, and complicated personal relationships. Azrieli has a unique ability to interweave fiction and fact – readers find themselves building a relationship with the complex characters, strongly feeling their emotions, while contemplating even larger themes that affect the world. While the story is entertaining, it is also a thought-provoking look into a world that many would otherwise not be exposed to. As the reader follows the world of secretive international organizations, assassinations, and political unrest, the story of human suffering and redemption shines through as the ultimate theme of the novel.” – N. Sorkin, The Author’s Den. “Action-packed escapade … memorable cast of characters … pages turn as fast as the plot twists and locales shift, taking the reader from Paris to Zurich to Amsterdam to Tel Aviv.” – Jewish News.   The Jerusalem Assassin is Available in Paperback, E-Book & Audio.

The Jerusalem Inception

On the eve of the Six Day War, in the divided city of Jerusalem, a young rabbinical scholar falls in love with a beautiful Mossad agent twice his age, breaks off the shackles of religious observance, and volunteers for a dangerous mission that will determine the outcome of the greatest Mideast war.The Jerusalem Inception by: Avraham Azrieli publisher: CreateSpace Praise for The Jerusalem Inception “The 1967 war continues to dominate the Middle East. If you want to know what really happened (and at the same time fall in love with a striking cast of unforgettable characters) then The Jerusalem Inception is for you. In the best tradition of Eye of the Needle and The Bourne Identity, this one is a hit!” —Stephen J. Wall, author of The Morning After and On the Fly. “Woven within its pages are secrets and lies, loves lost and hidden, resentment and betrayal. This amazing story develops in ways in which the reader would never have imagined, and I thoroughly recommend it to mystery and suspense thriller fans.” Susan Keefe, Living in France Magazine “Throughout the absorbing tale, Azrieli smoothly intertwines the inner lives of Abraham, Elie, Tanya and Lemmy which prove to be tragic, complex and with vast landscapes. At the same time, he manages to imbue the novel with themes such as the Holocaust, revenge, loyalty, honesty, religious fanaticism, forbidden love, the duplicity of some members of the United Nations prior to the Six-Day War and Israeli’s abandonment by the United States and France. What is quite noteworthy is that Azrieli manages to effectively combine important challenges Israel faces […] with riveting thriller elements. The four principal characters are far from being forgettable, all leaving readers with lasting impressions with their divergent beliefs and views that engage us on deeper levels. This one is certainly a chilling good read! Is there a sequel in the offing?” – N. Goldman, The Examiner “Gerster, Jerusalem Gerster” doesn’t have quite the ring as, “Bond, James Bond,” however as a character in author Avraham Azrieli’s book titled The Jerusalem Inception, James has nothing over Jerusalem with respect to international espionage, romantic exploits and nation building. – Pacific Book Review It set a consistent pace, never a boring moment. It has espionage, romance, a clear explanation of both government and IDF Intelligence Corps as well as some aspects of the Jewish faith […] airtight research and believability. Intriguing.
