In Traitor by Jonathan de Shalit an Israeli man walks into an American embassy and offers to betray his country and become a spy. Many years later a top secret team is put together because there is a hint that there may be a spy in a high position of the Israeli government.
I don’t want to give to much more of the premise away but I think it is an intriguing premise. However, I found the beginning a bit confusing and it took me awhile to figure out what was going on. There was also very little character development and I felt the story could have been more intriguing had I known more about the characters and understood them and why they did some of the things they did.
I did enjoy reading about how spy’s work, some of the tricks they use, how they communicate with one another, etc. and I found that all very fascinating and it is probably what kept the story engaging for me.
