Why is a Mossad agent planning to defy his bosses?
Yogev Ben-Ari has been sent to St Petersburg by the Mossad - ostensibly to set up business links. His life is solitary, ordered and lonely, until he meets Anna. Neither is quite what they seem to be, but there is no doubt about the love they feel for each other.
This encounter is definitely not part of the Mossad plan and they hatch a dark scheme to drive the two apart. Ben-Ari has no time to discover the truth about Anna's real identity before the Mossad resolves the issue for him. But still Ben-Ari doesn't give up, determined to learn the truth about their love.
Amid the shadowy manipulations of the secret services, Mishka Ben-David depicts the world of a Mossad agent who chooses, against all odds, to fight for his right to be with the woman he loves.
