"You open the book and start reading. Quicker than you can say Uris you are caught up at once in the unfolding conflict. . . . It's a professional job all the way.. . dramatic, impassioned."--The New York Times Book Review
"A fine suspense story, an excellent courtroom story, written with genuine passion. You won't put it down once you've picked it up. It is the author of Exodus at his best."--Newsday
