Its utterance by a defecting Czech spy has sent the entire Israeli intelligence community reeling. And so Jerusalems spymasters have no choice but to summon top military intelligence agent Major Eytan Eckstein and his lumbering, brilliant partner Lieutenant Colonel Benni Baum, sending them into Africa and a wilderness of mirrors, where no one is safe and nothing is as it seems to be.Jan Krumlov, a dashing counterintelligence expert from Prague, claims to know the identity of a traitor hidden deep within an ultrasecret Israeli nuclear weapons program.

Eckstein and Baum know that they have already stretched their luck too thin and should in fact be retiring from the Game, yet the fugitive Czech must be spirited back to friendly territory. For if he dies, his secret dies with him.Thus begins Operation Sorcerer, but what should be a simple covert assignment turns more deadly by the hour.
