Imagine if Israeli Prime Minister Eli Cohen returns from his first official meeting in Washington with the newly elected President of the United States. The message from the president is clear: Israel is alone in its struggle to halt the Iranian nuclear program. But there's a big problem: Israel has no viable plan to attack Iran without American help.

Frustration grows and time passes as the Israeli Defense Forces are mired in conventional thinking. Should Israel use its nuclear weapons in a first strike? After all, the very existence of the nation is at stake.

Then a brilliant young Mossad agent named Amit Margolis offers a suggestion that is anything but conventional. The radical concept is embraced by Prime Minister Cohen and his small group of advisors known as the Kitchen Cabinet. The plan to destroy the Iranian nuclear program becomes known as "Esther's Sling."

What is the secret that allows the IAF to attack Iran in a single sortie without any overt American help? Are nuclear weapons necessary? Will it work? The answers lie in Esther's Sling.

Ben Brunson is the author of the new thriller Esther’s Sling. Esther’s Sling is about an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program without overt U.S. military involvement. The novel reviews Israel’s strategic position, the conception of the plan, the preparation and, finally, the execution. Ben is also the author of the historical thriller The Falstaff Enigma, a novel about the Soviet Union in 1983 during the short reign of Yuri Andropov and the threat of World War III.
