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.

Ah yes, thought bell, races & wars and caravans of believers and seas, with their armies of chance and their games of skill... all come to meet in a orange grove at the crossroads of Jericho Inspired by true events, this centres on the one Mossad agent who gives up everything to spend his years buried deep within Syria. A pivotal role in the taking of Golan heights and the birth of Israel as we know it today. Although being Edward Whittemore it is also much more than that, the theme of threes continues with each religion represented in the beautiful town of Jericho where old men (a Moslem, Jew and Christian of course!) meet daily for board games and chat. Life flows around them and characters touch, fleetingly but with great impact.Less dark than the last but with the current future hanging over the scene we know there no happy ending. Still it’s bitter-sweet and cleverly mixes an overarching tense espionage plot with a feel of purely reminiscing of a past eventful life, of what will be will be. Its tone very much showing this is the last book in series. The characters are of course full and many and varied, the plot has more focus then before and passed fast so this feels the shortest one of series even though it’s not.One word that sums it up is satisfying, a good end to an astounding series. It could easily be read alone and enjoyed but would lose that peaceful finality. More accessible than the others so recommended to lovers of historical fiction, those interested in middle east history. For those seeking chaos try the 2nd book.more
