MARRIED to the MOSSAD
A Thriller based on a true story...
Recent news reports have revealed that ISIS has started deploying more women as suicide bombers — a disturbing turn in an already deplorable tactic.
But when it comes to our side fighting back against terror, women are indispensable as well and are especially suited for the task - although, of course, in a very different manner.
How could I possibly know this?
Simple. In my younger years, I joined my husband on his secret missions for the Mossad, the Israeli national intelligence agency. He relied on me because, when we went undercover, I could gain access to areas that were off limits to men.
