Publisher's Summary

It was the perfect day - until the gunfire.

Nir Tavor is an Israeli secret service operative turned talented Mossad agent.

Nicole le Roux is a model with a hidden skill.

A terrorist attack brings them together, and then work forces them apart - until they’re unexpectedly called back into each other’s lives.

But there’s no time for romance. As violent radicals threaten chaos across the Middle East, the two must work together to stop these extremists, pooling Nicole’s knack for technology and Nir’s adeptness with on-the-ground missions. Each heart-racing step of their operation gets them closer to the truth - and closer to danger.

In this thrilling first book in a new series, authors Amir Tsarfati and Steve Yohn draw on true events as well as tactical insights Amir learned from his time in the Israeli Defense Forces. For believers in God’s life-changing promises, Operation Joktan is a suspense-filled pause-resister that illuminates the blessing Israel is to the world.

Loved it!

Perfect balance of action, intrigue and romance without fowl language! I love how it uses real
life situations to show us the ongoing struggle in the Middle East so that we can understand it better.
I love Israel!

Fast paced and action packed.

The effort to bring Christianity to the reader was not necessary nor appreciated. There was enough truth to the story to make you think.

I am enjoying this book…

Sometimes you find an author(s) that is amazing at “showing not telling.” I am 2 chapters in and I can picture the scenes like I am there. Thank you for that Amir and Steve. I am captivated by the storyline already. I have read some of Amir’s other books and I am grateful to God for the anointing on his life.
Shout -out to Stephen the narrator you are contributing to my enjoyment of this wonderful book. Thank you to all involved. Thank you to you as well Audible- big fan.

loved it!

Such an interesting and action packed book. I really enjoyed the story line and characters, but I also left with a clearer view of what is going on in the middle east. I am very much looking forward to sequels.

Fantastic action packed novel.

Great book, Amir & Steve do an amazing job putting the reader in the place of the characters. Action scenes are described with vivid depiction making it feel as if you are watching a movie. Speaking of which, I could see this becoming a thriller/action movie one day!

Spy story with a reality twist

I don't really go for 007 stories but I gave it a try. It surprised me..it was a good story. Narration was ok, though not amazing. The plot had afew twists and I really liked the fact that they didn't throw in a sex scene just so they could sell it! Overall...I liked it!

Listen to the authors noted first. Acronyms were

Listen to the "Author's notes" first. The acronyms were difficult if you are not military. I found the book educational with lots of suspense.
Very good narration.

Awesome except for one thing...

Great fun and exciting story and characters but the character Nicole did a very poor job explaining the Gospel. The hope was Muslims and Jews may come to faith in Christ --but I would be surprised if anyone does! It would have been great if Nicole would have explained that Jesus was Jewish for the Jews listening, and that Jesus miracles, death, and resurrection proved that He was who he said He was--God in the flesh.

If you want to know more about what Muslims believe and what role they will play in these last days, future events and America's destiny as revealed in the Bible I recommend reading or listening to America In Bible Prophecy by JJ Jones.

Other than that I really enjoyed Operation Joktan and look forward Amir's next book!

A riveting and compelling book with a great story

This book is destined to be a classic. The level of insight into the geopolitical narrative that exists in the Middle east, enfused with the astonishing knowledge of modern warfare technologies, then molded into a brilliant storyline makes this book among the best ever in my 70 years of living. Even the jokes are funny. Top of one's reading list without a doubt.

Amazing!

I was surprised to see a fiction book by Amir Tsarfati after I have read The last hour and The day approaching. It seemed odd, but I've bought it to make myself more familiar with the Jew's mindset and what's happening far away in the middle east. I was not dissapointed! Imagine my surprise when I find a character from my own country: the Romanian black market seller and hacker Nicolae Filipescu- he was so much fun! The narrator's Romanian was hilarious

Operation Joktan

This is one one of those books which one cannot put down. It is a great spy/thriller/action filled book written so well I could almost feel the excitement and fear of the people involved. Highly recommended!

absolutly brilliant!

like many others, I couldn't stop listening to it! I pre-ordered the book on Amizon months ago (still waiting for that in the UK sadly) and then because I couldn't wait any longer, given the other reviews, I bout it on Kindle and Audio, and have been listening to it every min I could get! The narrator was very good! thank you Amir and Steve, and I can't wait for the other books to come out ASAP!

Excellent thriller.

A spy thriller that would give any Bond story a run for it's money. Hope there's a sequel.
