Description

The stunning conclusion to Edward Whittemore’s Jerusalem Quartet: The remarkable story of an Israeli agent who infiltrates Syrian intelligence, keying victory in the Six Day War
Yossi is an ideal agent for the Mossad—an Iraqi Jew, an idealist, and a charming loner, fluent in Arab dialects. Tajar, a brilliant agent, recruits and manages Yossi, code-named “the Runner.” Thus begins the longest-running and most successful operation in the history of Israeli intelligence. Yossi’s cover is Halim, a Syrian businessman who has returned home from Buenos Aires and whose charm inspires high-level friendships. His reputation leads to an opportunity that he can’t refuse: Tajar becomes a double agent infiltrating Syrian intelligence.
Meanwhile, in the desert oasis of Jericho, Abu Musa, an Arab patriarch, and Moses the Ethiopian, meet each day over games of shesh-besh and glasses of Arak to ponder history and humanity. We learn about the friendship of Yossi’s son, Assaf, an Israeli soldier badly wounded during the Six Day War, and Yousef, a young Arab teacher who, in support of the Palestinian cause, decides to live as an exile in the Judean wilderness.
Jericho Mosaic
is the final volume of the Jerusalem Quartet, which begins with Sinai Tapestry, Jerusalem Poker, and Nile Shadows. Steeped in the history and landscape of the Middle East, it is a story of idealism and dreams, hope and despair, and life’s moments of breathtaking beauty.

“The scroll of complex contemporary Middle Eastern history that unrolls over the 40 years covered in Jericho Mosaic is nightmarish in its twists and complexities. . . . Fun to read—and provocative.” —The New York Times
“On both a human and historical level, Jericho Mosaic makes comprehensible, as no other recent book does, the history of the Middle East since the end of World War II. And that is only one of the novel’s multitude of virtues. . . . The final book in what is one of the most wonderful achievements in 20th-century literature.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
“This remarkable epic set in the Middle East deserves a new generation of readers.” —Publishers Weekly

Edward Whittemore (1933­­­–1995) graduated from Yale University in 1955 and went on to serve as a Marine officer in Japan and spend ten years as a CIA operative in the Far East, Europe, and the Middle East. In addition to writing fiction, he managed a newspaper in Greece, was employed by a shoe company in Italy, and worked in New York City’s narcotics control office during the administration of Mayor John V. Lindsay. He wrote the Jerusalem Quartet while dividing his time between New York and Jerusalem.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 01, 2002 – Between 1977 and 1987, former CIA operative Edward Whittemore (1933-1995) wrote the Jerusalem Quartet, a surreal historical fantasy that won many plaudits but little renown for its author. This remarkable epic set in the Middle East deserves a new generation of readers and comes with blurbs from Jonathan Carroll, Ellen Datlow and Mike Resnick.
