Death in Shangri-La
Yigal Zur’s thriller Death in Shangri-La tells the story of former Isreali operative and current private detective Dotan Naor. The plot of the book involves Naor being sent by his former friend Willy Mizrachi, now an arms dealer, whose son has disappeared while traveling in the Himalayas. Accepting the mission, Dotan travels to the Himalayas. Not trusting Dotan, Willy also travels to New Delhi where he is later killed. It is after this murder when all hell breaks loose and Dotan must race against time to save Willy’s son before it is too late. Complicating the matter is the fact that other Israeli young men are in the region celebrating their discharge from the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Now not only Willy’s son’s life is at stake, but so are the lives of the young Israelis. Being that the Kashmir region is one of the most volatile places in the world, just a tiny spark can trigger a worldwide conflagration.
Yigal Zur’s plot is very fast-paced with lots of action. The story is told from the first person of Dotan Naor, which lends it more authenticity as the reader gets a peek inside of his mind. The book has all the familiar tropes of a spy novel such as betrayal and love for one’s country. All in all, this is a great book if you enjoy authors like Vince Flynn or Brad Thor.
