LION OF GOD
"The Jewish people do not forgive. . .we do not forget."
It is the year 2000, and with the new millennium has come the fresh promise of peace in the Middle East. But when a pair of IDF reservists are brutally lynched in the West Bank town of Ramallah--the graphic imagery of their final moments broadcast around the Western world. . .all hopes of peace are shattered.
As Israel mourns her dead and America attempts to salvage the peace process, the Mossad is tasked with finding and bringing to justice those responsible for the butchery, activating a Kidon team led by a young assassin known only as Ariel. . . the "Lion of God."
But as the hunt narrows, it quickly becomes apparent that nothing is as it seems. And vengeance far from the only agenda in play. . .
The Lion of God Trilogy represents an expansion of Stephen England's best-selling Shadow Warriors universe, and this volume includes all three previously-published individual episodes now compiled into a single volume.
THE LION'S PAW
“God. . .wherever He is, whoever He is, hasn’t cared about Syria in a very many years.”
The Sukhoi Su-57 “Felon.” The Russian Federation’s formidable new stealth fighter. Sleek, dangerous, and—forward-deployed into the maelstrom of the Syrian Civil War for field testing—vulnerable.
For the CIA, the Su-57’s presence in Syria presents an opportunity. For Mossad’s David Shafron, the former assassin once known as the “Lion of God,” it represents a threat. For the Syrian rebels soon tasked with its recovery. . .their own damnation.
It’s a high-stakes gambit worthy of the Cold War, but this war is red-hot.
For Mohamed Taferi, dispatched by Shafron to lead the operation on the ground, the Syrian conflict is nothing new. An Israeli Druze and Mossad field officer, he’s found himself in the war-ravaged country countless times over the years. But this mission will plunge him deeper into the darkness—the madness—of the inferno than ever before, hunted by Russian Spetsnaz and a sadistic Syrian Special Forces captain, forced to rely on a ragtag, bloodied band of the unlikeliest allies, rebels and jihadists alike, in a nightmarish journey of the damned across the very heart of desolation.
And no one is emerging from these fires unscathed.
