Author Harry Stern has recently released “The Insider,” a sequel to his first novel, “My Brothers’ Keeper.”

“The Insider” is a page-turning tale of vengeance and duplicity. An international terror plot targeting New York City becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse with Iran’s secret service.

Leora Bargal and Joshua Canaan, two top Mossad counterterrorism operatives, are enlisted to work with Detective Alex Ramirez and FBI agents to thwart Iran’s plan to bomb a New York cultural hub, the 92nd Street Y.

Harry Stern’s “The Insider,” a follow-up to his first novel, “My Brother’s Keeper,” is available on Amazon.

Iran’s Quds Force has formed Unit 840. Its goal is to inflict maximum casualties on Jews worldwide. It has devised a plan to detonate a massive bomb at the Y during a national convention attended by 200 Jewish philanthropists and nonprofit executives.

If the detonation is not stopped, Iran will claim that the loss of Jewish lives begins to balance Israel’s assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, the use of the Stuxnet computer virus to damage its centrifuges, and the targeted killings of Iranian military leaders.

Stern has written and lectured on Middle Eastern affairs and their impact on Israel’s military challenges. Upon receiving his M.A. and doctorate from Columbia University, Stern moved to Israel, where he assumed the role of Director of Community Organization for Southern Tel Aviv and held a faculty position at Hebrew University, in Jerusalem.

When Stern returned to the United States, he held the position of CEO of several Jewish organizations, including the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta and the Lawrence Family JCC of San Diego. REJA Press published his memoir, “Anemone in a Desert Landscape.” He then launched the Bargal-Canaan series of espionage novels in 2020 with “My Brothers’ Keeper.”

“The Insider” is available on Amazon.

Stern lives in Atlanta with his wife, Aviva. They have three children and six grandchildren.
