Incomplete Silence is a futuristic thriller that keeps you breathless until the last page.

Rivka Aaronson is the woman leading the coup, a woman with certain ideas about religion that could potentially be dangerous.

This book is a fast-paced thriller with an intriguing plot and one action sequence following the other. It explains a complex political situation in a straightforward way, and implements it into the story rather well. One downside is that some parts of the book are harder to grasp if you’re not familiar with the situation in Israel; however, this doesn’t derail from the story.
