In The Dreadful Tango in Paris, Le Docteur is a French professor who seeks to establish a new Islamist world order. He has ties to Al Queda and ISIS, and basically any bad organization you can think of. He establishes NEMESIS, his own terrorist organization that strikes out against virtually anything: communists, Christians, Jews, capitalists. His number one goal is to cause international alarm, and he quickly succeeds in this evil plot.

People grow afraid as Le Docteur’s tactics grow increasingly worse, from crashing a Russian passenger plane to releasing bacteria that can cause injuries and death. With the public terrified, it’s up to David Avivi, a senior Mossad official, and Claire Barthez, a senior French Foreign Service officer, to pursue Le Docteur and his terrorist allies, and stop them, once and for all.

This was a nail-biting, suspenseful thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. Unfortunately, the plot is all too realistic; in today’s era of mutual hatred between just about anyone and any group of people, it seems only a matter of time before the evil predicament that is at the core of this book, of one man willing to destroy hundreds, becomes reality. However, although the concept is very realistic and that makes it terrifying, it also adds to the integrity of the book, and makes me cheer for the author who was brave enough to take on this subject.

The details are amazing, and the writing is top-notch. Once I started, I couldn’t stop reading, and although the prospect is quite terrifying, it does make for an exciting, riveting thriller.
