Abstract:

When we first meet him, Jacob is an elderly man with an air of bitter loneliness, who claims to have had a secret past with an unbelievable story that he has kept to himself for over 40 years--a tale that he is at long last able to tell. And so, meeting every week for over a year with therapist and writer Jeffrey Kottler, Jacob recounts his amazing journey as a young Jewish boy from the Bronx, who is recruited in 1947 to join the volunteer forces in Palestine to fight for an independent state of Israel, where he is trained as an assassin in an elite covert unit. They secure a book deal with a major publisher, and are putting the final touches on the manuscript when Kottler begins to have doubts about the accuracy of the tale and of Jacob's motives, ultimately causing a crisis of faith in the meaning of his work, his trust in his colleagues and clients, and his abilities as a therapist and teacher. --From publisher's description.
