Review: Devil Among Us by Jack Winnick


A New York synagogue is leveled by an explosion on Yom Kippur. Hundreds are killed and maimed. An investigation indicates Jewish members were responsible. But were they? Simultaneously, the threat of an organized Muslim Brotherhood attack on Israel looms on the horizon. FBI agent Lara Edmond and Mossad field agent, Uri Levin, lead characters in Winnick’s debut novel, East Wind, are assigned the dangerous task of solving this new attempt to stop the U.S. from providing aid to Israel. PRAISE FOR WINNICK’S FIRST NOVEL, EAST WIND In the genre of international spy thrillers from Daniel Silva and Vince Flynn, Jack Winnick’s East Wind is a fast-paced, page-turner novel involving a credible scenario: Muslim terrorists have penetrated the U.S., detonated one small nuclear dirty bomb in a major U.S. city and are threatening further attacks if the U.S. does not cease its support for Israel. –from Goodreads

My Review:

Devil Among Us is a suspenseful international thriller!

Lara and Uri team up again after hundreds are murdered in a New York synagogue bombing. Upon investigation, the pair suspect that the bombing is tied to other terrorist plans. This is a national, perhaps a global, problem that Lara and Uri happen upon.

Can they figure out who is behind the bombing? And does this incident have larger implications?

Lara and Uri must work together to figure out who the devil is among them. With tons of action, kidnappings, attempted murders, nefarious terrorist schemes, and multiple perspectives, this page-turner will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Though this is not the first book in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone. In fact, I didn’t read the first books, and I had no trouble following the plot line. If anything, reading this book made me want to go back and read more about Lara and Uri’s work and personal relationship!


Favorite Parts:

  • it is fast-paced and has a ton of action
  • the plot is well-developed and intense
  • it is suspenseful
  • Lara and Uri! They are a great team!


Readers who like international spy thrillers will love this book.
