David Gal is very much his own man, a Mossad agent, he does things his way, and if he’s on a mission, nothing and no one will prevent him from achieving his goals. He’s something of a smartass, brash to the point of rudeness, but you have to admire him, considering who his targets are, and in particular the reason why this quest is so personal to him. This mission takes him to Argentina, where Hitler and his inner circle - the military elite, are thought to have fled. It goes without saying that this is a very dangerous mission, involving gun fights, bloody encounters, interrogation and torture. Gal has a meeting set up with a local underworld boss, who may have the information needed to complete his quest. He is provided with an Argentinian chauffeur/guide, Enzo, however Enzo becomes much more than a chauffeur to Gal. Enzo is an adorable character, he has a childlike naivety, that will melt your heart, and brings much to the storyline. With extreme and bloody violence, a storyline that may require you to suspend disbelief at times, it was nevertheless, an action packed, gripping read, with an opening chase sequence that left me breathless. Very enjoyable. *My thanks to Yoel Bereket, for offering me a free copy in exchange for an honest unbiased review*

    This was a newer type of story for me, but I really did enjoy it. It follows a superhero-like Israeli spy, Gal, hunting Hitler for his atrocities against the Jews, which includes Gal's family. He travels around the world to find his target, leaving a path of well-calculated destruction in his way. He is an awesome protagonist and his sidekick, Enzo, is great, too. The story is informative, action-packed, bloody, and has a lot of serious portions of it, however, there is also a fair amount of hum This was a newer type of story for me, but I really did enjoy it.

It is an easy read and moves quick, having a definitive conclusion, but also leaves some loose ends for more potential adventures with Gal, which I would be interested in reading. The title of the book is absolutely tremendous, too!!

    This book was action from beginning to end. Action is usually not my thing, but it had enough humanity in it to appeal to me. Enzo has to be my favorite character. He blended in with the protagonist, Gal seamlessly. The scene at the hotel was my favorite part. The characters were colorful and it felt like a break from the action. The book needed a couple of more parts like this scene, a moment to smell the roses. I would also have appreciated a little more description.

    This entertaining short novel is an action-packed story about a superhero called, David Gal the Mossad agent. Storytelling is of a very good quality, all characters are lively, especially Gal and his Argentinian little mate, Enzo, and interactions between them are very likeable in this fast-paces fantasy story of assassinations and bloodshed, although personally in some cases its a bit far-fetched, like Hitler already being dead but Adolf Eichmann very much alive in Argentina, where he was kidnap This entertaining short novel is an action-packed story about a superhero called, David Gal the Mossad agent. Storytelling is of a very good quality, all characters are lively, especially Gal and his Argentinian little mate, Enzo, and interactions between them are very likeable in this fast-paces fantasy story of assassinations and bloodshed, although personally in some cases its a bit far-fetched, like Hitler already being dead but Adolf Eichmann very much alive in Argentina, where he was kidnapped by the Mossad in 1960, convicted in Israel in 1961 and hanged there in 1962, but with fantasy anything may be possible so anyone who doesn't mind fiddling with the true facts, then this is a great read for all of you. The book starts explosively with the murder of Adolf Eichmann in Rome at the hands of the Mossad agent, David Gal, assisted by his colleague, Saul, before returning to Israel. Gal's next target will be Adolf Hitler, who's hiding somewhere in fascist Argentina, and Gal and Saul are sent there by the Israeli Government, Golda-Meir and Ben-Gurion, and their Boss of the Mossad. In Argentina Gal will meet in Buenos Aires his mate in combat, a little Argentinian called, Enzo, and they will develop an amazing partnership in this story of murder and survival, before they will reach their final destination, and Gal's victim, Adolf Hitler. In an exciting, thrilling and sad way this read will come to an immense exploding end, and its also an end in which the dreidel, not a round spinning top but a four-sided one with names on it, has played a very important part to Gal to fulfill his ultimate vengeance. Really recommended, for this is a very enjoyable story, mixed with a superhero of the James Bond kind, and these ingredients make for an absolute worthwhile read, and that's why I like to call this short novel: "A Likeable Fast-Paced Fantasy Novel"! ** Thank you to the author for my digital ARC in exchange for an unbiased and honest review!**

    I loved this book! It’s truly is an exciting, fast-paced historical fiction story. At first I was skeptical.

This book is perfectly timed; the author did not waste words in going off on tangents, which is why the book smoothly sped ahead. When I was at the 70% mark I slowed myself down in order to savor the pages that were left. Gal is a Nazi hunter, and is determined to take down the leaders of the fallen 3rd reich that got away with brutal crimes, at any cost. The book does have violence due to the topic. But many of my books have violence in them. Gal, is unlikeable in many ways. He’s rude, arrogant and gets highly irritated with anything in his way, which is why is has to work with other agents who try to reel him in (unsuccessfully). Gal’s anger is palpable and very personal, it is part of who he is. However, he does have a redeeming quality or two. I loved the character of Enzo. A naive, yet lovable boy, who lives his life wholeheartedly. In spite of his questionable ties, he is still innocent, not to mention loyal. Then there is Pishtaco. A mythical creature in Andes region in South America, which was an interesting twist. Bottom line: I’m a big fan of justice thrillers and I’m a big fan of this book. This is a great read and Yoel Bereket has done a wonderful job in luring us into the world and emotions of that time. If there ends up being a sequel, I would definitely read it. I would like to thank, Mr. Bereket for giving me a free copy of his book for an honest, unbiased review.

It is alternate history/fantasy which apparently takes place in the mid 1950's. Over-the-top action and violence with exaggerated comic book style heroes and villains. Mossad agent Gal personally destroyed an entire SS Division during the war. Later, he assassinated nearly every major Nazi figure - Mengle, Himmler, Goering, Goebbels - almost everybody except Hitler. In the beginning of this book, he kills Eichmann and hangs his mounted head on his wall as decoration. Now he is after Hitler who is apparently living in Argentina. Comparing this book to a comic book is not necessarily a negative criticism. Adventure/action comics are popular big business complete with movie franchises. I do not happen to like them or most movies based on them but plenty of people do. If you are one of those people, you may very well like this book. I did not like Agent Gal or the other characters but for the most part, it is a pretty well written, if almost breathless and non-stop, action tale. My major criticism of the writing is of the gross overuse and sometimes misuse of smirk, smirking and smirked. Approximately 11 smirks in the first 33 pages. This is not my kind of book but it is pretty well written except for the smirks. I think three and a half stars.

    First and foremost, a large thank you to Yoel Bereket for providing me with a copy of this novel, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. Having enjoyed Yoel Bereket’s debut novel, I happily accepted a request by the author to read an early copy of this book as well. Bereket mixes history with politics in a quasi-thriller that pits a man with a troubled past against the behemoth known as Nazism, with a figure at its core that is the embodiment of hate. This journey takes the reade First and foremost, a large thank you to Yoel Bereket for providing me with a copy of this novel, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. Having enjoyed Yoel Bereket’s debut novel, I happily accepted a request by the author to read an early copy of this book as well. Bereket mixes history with politics in a quasi-thriller that pits a man with a troubled past against the behemoth known as Nazism, with a figure at its core that is the embodiment of hate. This journey takes the reader across two continents and explores post-war sentiments about fascism while seeking to close the book on one of the darkest moments in 20th century history. Entertaining and gritty, Bereket’s book will likely appeal to those who like dabbling with a little alternate history while garnering thrills and spills along the way. David Gal has a unique talent for being able to infiltrate groups to which he would not usually have access. Gal’s sole focus is to extract information and kill those involved, particularly if they still hold firm to their national socialist views. It is nine years since the fall of the Third Reich and many of those men who espoused the eternal nature of Germany’s new way of life are on the run, but still collaborating as best they can. Gal’s goal is to eradicate them as best he can, no matter the amount of bloodshed. When called to meet with Israel’s prime minister and a handful of others, Gal is tasked with taking down the greatest threat of all; Adolf Hitler. It would seem his suicide in a Berlin bunker was a misdirection and the Führer is still alive, hidden away in Argentina. Armed with his determination, Gal finds his way there and is given a local errand boy to help traverse the vast terrain. As they hunt, Gal and his companion learn a little more about one another and the intensity of the battle ahead. Hitler’s whereabouts is not widely known, nor is it advertised on roadsigns. Gal will have to use his intuition and some violent outbursts to follow the trail into the rural environs, determined to put a bullet into the head of the man who espoused such hatred. However, there is more than nationalistic pride on the line, as Gal reveals throughout. This is personal and nothing short of complete annihilation will be accepted. Yoel Bereket does well pulling all the needed elements together in this piece. Part alternate history, part adventure story, the novel keeps the reader connected throughout the narrative. The entertainment value of the story provides something for the reader to enjoy without getting farcical out outlandish. There are certainly some strong sentiments throughout, which become more prevalent as the story advances to its climactic revelations. David Gal is a strong protagonist and the reader discovers much about the man throughout the narrative. His sole focus is the extermination of the Nazis left over and in hiding, though he is calculating in his approach. Bloodletting is no concern to him, though he seeks to be discreet, so as not to alert too many to his plan. With a more personal undertone woven into the story, the reader gets a glimpse of a delicate backstory that helps propel the larger plot forward. Bereket also peppers his piece with some strong secondary characters, each of whom plays an essential role in the larger story. Revealing much about the history of the time and the sentiments around Nazi hunting, Bereket develops these characters to push the story along and reveals certain sentiments that are important to better understanding the themes of the novel. The story itself is a mix of serious and lighthearted, with a definite darkness as it relates to world history. Bereket does well to balance both, while telling a thrilling story that keeps its momentum throughout. With a mix of chapter lengths, the reader is pushed forward, hoping to be a part of this hunt for a ruthless dictator, while also seeing some of the side trips that the protagonist is forced to take. The narrative flows well and there are certainly some moments of gritty dialogue, which only adds to the realism of the overall piece. While this is not high-brow literature, Yoel Bereket can surely entertain throughout, which is surely his primary goal with this piece. I am eager to see what else he has in store for readers in the coming years! Kudos, Mr. Bereket, for an entertaining piece. I have enjoyed both your novels and hope others soon find out why for themselves! Love/hate the review?

Sounds a bit like a scene from a teenager's daydream, doesn't it? The hero kills all the bad guys with his trusty Red Rider bb gun? Or maybe a scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark? Actually this story would probably make a great action movie in the right hands. It's actually pretty exciting with lots of non-stop action and violence. But I think what I liked best about the story were Agent Gal's flashbacks to what happened to his family and others in Nazi Germany, what stoked his hatred. Those parts had heart. The writer might want to entertain writing historical fiction. The relationship between the agent and Enzo, the young Argentinian assigned to be his driver, is also interesting and at times even comical. Again, these are the parts with heart. Good luck with your writing and self-publishing, Yoel. I have a feeling you are planning a sequel and I'd be happy to read that one too.

    This is one hell of an action adventure book, not my usual read to be honest but it had me hooked with the full on action all the way through. It is really fun however believable it is not; just suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride. We follow our protagonist Gal, a Nazi hunter who reminded me of a James Bond type character, he has the charm, the strength and the quips too. This one man army with a vendetta is justified if you ask me and he will do whatever it takes to complete his mission.

This one man army with a vendetta is justified if you ask me and he will do whatever it takes to complete his mission. In this fast paced, bloodied adventure death and destruction follow in his wake and even so throughout we still have a sense of humour and light heartedness. Gal is a great character, very likeable, as is Enzo - it is hard not to become invested in the story when you like the characters this much. Overall a well written book with just enough detail, it keeps going along at a decent pace and flows well making for an easy enjoyable read, this is the kind of writing that takes no effort at all. Yes there is blood and gore but only what is required for the story, it is not gratuitous or over the top. If you like action and adventure then I think this is the book for you. It has quite a powerful opening and really doesn’t disappoint from there. I’m giving this a very fair 4*/5, I’m not one for action stories as a general rule but this one had me.

    Damn, this book was amazing from start to finish. But really I shouldn’t be surprised. I mean anything that deals with nazi hunters in general, and hunting Hitler specifically is bound to be great. I just adored everything about this story, and felt like it would make one hell of a graphic novel.

    A fast paced book filled with lots of action. I'm not exactly sure how to classify this book as you could think of it as historical fiction as it is set after WWII however in this book Hitler is still alive after the war. Our main character has a mission to track down Hitler and any other former Nazi he can find and eliminate them. The book definitely kept me guessing as to what would happen next and there was lots of action to keep the story moving along.

The system needs to realize the horrors and cruelty of wars amongst civilians and the soldiers which causes vast destruction for a long period of time that remains to be unforgotten and unforgivable. I like how fiction and historical events have been mixed together. A massive growth of assassination those Nazis In-order to occupy the territories, to gain control and power amongst those who they considered weak, leaving all the families disturbed and silenced against their own voices. Gal and Enzo were throughout the main characters in the story where they consecutively fight against Nazis to erase them completely. Gal solely believed he was “A hunter for Nazis”. A great deal of Vengeance and a force of reality. I couldn’t be more proud of Gal, as he was able to get his revenge and his solemn Dreidel all the way to his path! It’s a fight against those whose sufferings and lives have been shattered to fight against Nazi’s. I could never find my peace by the thought of Hitler still being alive, no matter in the book, but, a well deserved justice for those who suffered throughout under the voices of Nazis The book has perfect dilemma and all the plots are placed well. A quick read with ease in understanding, Small read but, Loud voices clearly.

    Wow! The fictitious plot was full of good characterisation and twists, turns and excitement. Excellent fast moving fiction with a historical basis. Honestly It was the fastest page turner I have ever read, in fact I made myself go back and reread some of it as I was reading it too quickly. I enjoyed the novel very much. This is the first time I have read a book written by this author. Such a brilliant writer with incredible creative range. Definitely worth ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars!!

    This was a donated gift from the author and I am very grateful. It was set in the time of pay phones and after WW II. Roc is an Israeli assassin who is out to kill Hitler and Eva in S. America. The story was very fast paced, full of adventure and I saw Roc’s many martial abilities and his finesse with weapons of any kind. His young helper was refreshing and very devoted. Some of the tale was far fetched but it didn’t matter, it was an enjoyable story. Would I read this author again? Absolutely!

From an explosively heart-in-mouth beginning straight on through, the tension is non-stop and unrelenting.

    I was provided a digital copy of Dreidel To The Grave (ebook) by Yoel Bereket and asked to read it and provide an unbiased review of it. It is sort of a What If meets Conspiracy Theories. Many nazis of the Third Reich actually did manage to escape from the immediate post war confusion and make their way to Argentina and other parts of South America. Josef Mengele aka Angel of Death was one to the top nazi officers to have used this method to escape and hide out until his death in 1979 in Brazil. I was provided a digital copy of Dreidel To The Grave (ebook) by Yoel Bereket and asked to read it and provide an unbiased review of it. It is sort of a What If meets Conspiracy Theories. Many nazis of the Third Reich actually did manage to escape from the immediate post war confusion and make their way to Argentina and other parts of South America. Josef Mengele aka Angel of Death was one to the top nazi officers to have used this method to escape and hide out until his death in 1979 in Brazil. Adolph Eichmann was the most widely known official who was captured in Argentina by Israeli agents and taken to Israel to stand trial before being executed for his crimes. There are many stories of other lower-level nazis being discovered including in America who have their citizenship revoked and being deported to stand trial. There are also many stories about the prevalence of former nazis living in South America and even reviving or recreating another reich there to continue their plans to conquer the world and destroy the Jews. Dreidel weaves all of these ideas and more into a reasonably believable plot to bring forth a new Fourth Reich in Argentina with Hitler at its head. He was reported to have committed suicide in his bunker in Berlin as the Russian troops were taking the city and then had his body burned to prevent any propaganda use by the Soviets. But there have been questions about the validity of that ending. In come the conspiracy theories that Hitler left Berlin before the fall; whereabouts unknown! Dreidel weaves that into its story, along with an Israeli agent who specializes in hunting down and capturing or killing all of the surviving top nazis wherever they can be found around the world. The story focuses on a time nine years after the fall of the Third Reich when a lone Israeli agent is dispatched to investigate reports of a nazi organization developing in Argentina with many high-ranking former German nazis who intend to revive or start the Fourth Reich with Hitler again as its head. The writing is very suspenseful and blended well with actual WWII history; I found it hard to put down as one obstacle after another presented itself to block the agent from his goal: taking out all of the top nazis including Adolf Hitler.

He was named David then, working alongside his parents and his sister earning less than enough for a family to live by. Memories of the cruel war and the merciless Reich remain and continually linger. Can the lives of those who ruled and tortured be enough to ease memories? Or is it not about forgetting at all, but remembering and therefore making these others recall? Himmler, Heydrich, Eichmann. Cross their names from the dreidel. But there is one left, or it has been rumored. Israeli spy Gal believes he lives. He will cross a world in search of this one who matters most, for his country, for his family, for himself. Gal is brash and head-strong, while often using the “act before I think about it” tactic. It's who he is. No-nonsense can be a very likable trait, when a little humor is applied. In the wake of the bodies that fall, I found some laughs. There is meaning, but the story doesn't take itself too seriously. After all, it is writing its own history, of a sort. Not a long book, but a shortened chase may have delivered a more powerful impact. 3.5 stars with a gun, a grenade, or bare-knuckles...whatever's handy. And of course, one dreidel in his pocket. Yoel, the author of this novel asked me to read his story, and I very much appreciate that.

    This is an action film in writting. Great action scenes, the worst villain in history and a cast of characters that works towards a goal we all would if given the chance. If you're worried about reading a self-publish author, no worries: Yoel won't disappoint you. A small heads-up that must be said: This book is dumb fun. It isn't an elaborate 'What if Hitler escaped Berlin' Alternative History book, nor does it approach any of the existing conspiracy theories.

It's fun to read, the action sequences are great and the characters are fun but it's not a story grounded on the possibilities of 1945 or any time afterwards.

    The author very kindly sent me this book in exchange for an honest review. In 1955, a daredevil Mossad agent is going around killing Nazis. He finds that Hitler is alive, and goes to kill him, as well, putting an end to the Nazi menace once and for all. That's all well and good, and there is some decent action. Unfortunately, most of the rest falls a bit short. The 1955 Argentina, could just as well be anywhere. The characters aren't fleshed out at all. Many of them have a distinctively post 1960' The author very kindly sent me this book in exchange for an honest review. In 1955, a daredevil Mossad agent is going around killing Nazis.

Many of them have a distinctively post 1960's viewpoint. There's no tension generated, as the protagonist is simply superheroic. Diverting but disposable.

    An action packed, fast paced page turner!!! I am not one to typical enjoy books such as this, but when asked to read it and give an unbiased review, I couldn't refuse..and honestly I'm glad I didn't. Gal is one heck of a character. It takes you back to a very trying and scary time based on our history. I highly recommend anyone and everyone to give this book a try. Bereket did a wonderful job of keeping this reader wondering what happens next, and completely enthralled in this book. I could very An action packed, fast paced page turner!!!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I am not super familiar with the part of history so read through the book googling names of and terms. Interesting to know there are so many different facts and rumours about what happened to Hitler after the war, Very easy reading, a fast pace book a bit like 007 almost from the beginning to the end, lots of fighting, chasing killing and some beautiful women around. Personally I wanted to see more of each characters personality deeper - and is there second book of series coming?

    Great Story, with a premise similar to "Boys from Brazil", done as an action/thriller rather than a suspense/thriller. fantastic action sequences, a pace that rarely lets up, and a story about a Mossad Agent who is tough as nails and plays by his own rules as he hunts down those Last Nazis who escaped from Germany in the last days of WWII.

    First of all, thank you Yoel Bereket for offering me a free copy in return of a review. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book; it is a fairly quick read with lots of action but easy to understand. I loved the relationship between the 2 main characters, Gal & Enzo.

    A good idea but not a new concept. Yoel Bereket has done a good job weaving a story around this very sensitive issue. Not my kind of novel, but she nevertheless deserves praise for making her characters believeable.

    A non-stop thrill ride that imagines top Nazis survived the Second World War, leaving it up to a Mossad agent to dispatch justice. Yoel paints action pictures with the best of them and his protagonist is a flawed, fascinating hero.
