The Damascus Cover

A spy walks the dangerous line between love and survival.

LA Times Bestselling Spy Thriller. Now a Major Motion Picture.
“Kaplan is up there with the best.”– Clive Cussler

“In the best tradition of the new espionage novel. Kaplan’s grasp of history and scene creates a genuine reality. He seems to know every back alley of Damascus and Cyprus.”– Los Angeles Times

In a last ditch effort to revive his career, washed out agent Ari Ben-Sion accepts a mission he never would have 30 years ago ? to smuggle a group of Jewish children out of the Damascus ghetto.

Or so he thinks.

In Damascus, a beautiful American photographer, Kim, seems to be falling in love with Ari. But, she is asking too many questions.

His communication equipment disappears. His contact never shows up. The operation is only hours away and everything seems awry.

Realizing that he’s caught up in a bigger and more dangerous game, Ari is desperate to succeed… and he’s willing to risk everything… even his life.

The Damascus Cover is a gripping thriller with enough twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued until the explosive ending.
