Mecca - William Deverell Review


i have recently read "Mecca" by William Deverell and i must say that i thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

For me, Mecca was a slow read, much less gripping than his other stories, it took me the better part of a weekend to read half the book and some scattered reading before that for the other half. Still, the characters were very identifiable to me and the plot twists were sudden and unsuspected.

Mecca differs from Deverell's other work in that this story isn't exclusively about lawyers, their trials and their day to day lives, such as the plot in "kill all the lawyers" and "slander". While i also enjoyed those books, Mecca was more of an action thriller than a lawyer story, even though one of the main characters is a lawyer living a double life as a mossad agent, unbeknownst to his best friend, the main character.

dealing with leftist revolutionaries, communist ideology and terrorism, deverell offers and interesting perspective.
