Winter, 2019. Twenty-three years after the ultra-secret terrorist organization, Sons of Jihad, is exposed and its headquarters in Beirut destroyed, they strike again. Its few remaining agents who manage to reach the West deliver a series of astounding blows in the heart of London, forcing the British security services to finally face their looming threat. Agents Adrian Frost and Jemma Stone, who head the MI5 task force that tracks the elusive sleeper agents, are caught up in a treacherous web of terror and espionage, and set up to take the fall when the foremost sleeper agent gains access to one of the most sensitive and powerful positions in the British security services. London becomes a ghost town, and the government falls into complete disarray. The brutal attacks on both the British currency and its monarchy threaten to alter the balance of power in Europe as the Kremlin moves in for the kill. Flung into no-man's land, accused of sabotage and treason, Frost and Stone conjure up whatever means available to uncover the truth and flush out the sleepers who threaten their homeland.

About The Author

Niv Kaplan was born at Kibbutz Ayelet Hashahar in 1959. At the age of 11 he moved with his parents to New York City for three years (1973-1970.) After graduating from Hula Valley High School, Niv served three years in an IAF Special Forces Reconnaissance unit and took an active part in the establishment of the IDF Alpine Unit, in which he served in the reserves. In 1984, Niv returned to New York to study sound engineering and from there continued on to study in Los Angeles. In New York and Los Angeles Niv worked at El Al security and then at high-tech companies in the field of electro-Optics and lasers. In 1992, Niv received a BSc in Business Administration (Marketing) from California State University Northridge (CSUN) and in 1994 returned to Israel. Niv has 5 children and three grandchildren and currently lives in Ramat Hasharon (near Tel Aviv). Today, Niv works as a Sales director for a company that developed a system for neutralizing commercial drones, after working for 23 years in the Aero-Space industry, marketing sophisticated systems to fighter jets.

"Tracks" was published in 2014 - a thriller, that reached number 14 in the world, in Amazon sales (considered an Israeli record) selling 4,500 copies in one night! "Kibbutz, Unplugged" was published in Hebrew in 2015 โ€“ itโ€™s a book that brings the story of the Kibbutz through their eyes of adolescent kids in the 1970s.
