Crime Time Round-Up: "Character-based espionage fiction with the sophistication of the masters."

Date: May 9 2013

More translated crime from BENJAMIN TAMMUZ, MINOTAUR (Europa/World Noir), translated from the Hebrew by Mildred Budny and Kim Parfitt. This is character-based espionage fiction with the sophistication of the masters; an Israeli secret agent encounters a seductive Englishwoman and begins a curious takeover of her life using all his professional skills. As a novel of obsession, it is shot through with bitter power and is as much a study of thwarted love as an examination of the tropes of the crime/espionage novel.
