. Terrorism is at the base of this mystery.

Haggai Carmon brings his vast knowledge to his latest novel The Chameleon Conspiracy. He takes the reader on an international journey as Dan Gorden searches for the answer to a case that has baffled law enforcement for many years. Gorden was given the old case because of his abilities to identify clues that others tend to overlook. The search for answers takes Gorden into the jaws of danger. The search for answers becomes almost an obsession. The criminal goes by the name Chameleon. He is extremely intelligent, and he is more than a criminal. Terrorism is at the base of this mystery. This is the first book I've read by Haggai Carmon. It will not be the last. Carmon captures the reader's attention and does not let go until the very last page. This is not a fast read. There are twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing throughout the book. Carmon introduces the reader to other cultures. I could easily be convinced that the plot is based on fact. Fans of mystery will not want to miss out on this one.

Chameleon Conspiracy - Follow the Money to Terror...

"...World War III has already begun. It's the terrorists against the rest of the world." (p.117) Haggai Carmon's The Chameleon Conspiracy is the real thing! By that, I mean that you can readily tell that Carmon has the background knowledge and experience to write this tale of intrigue. Sharing both the slow gathering of information as well as the many false leads lends added realism to a story in which many of us could star--as a victim! For you see, young men who have left the United States, for vacation or business, have their identities stolen. They are killed and someone takes their place to come back into the States! Is it one man, or many? At the same time, there are a number of major financial scams across America and the Department of Justice has been brought in to try to follow and recover the money. Dan Gordon, an attorney was trained by the Mossad, with the Justice Department, and is working with the CIA, FBI, and the Mossad as he travels the world looking for who he believes is one man, who has taken the various identities and handled the various thefts. Gordon dubbed him The Chameleon... Following the trail of money is not easy, especially when an American is helping the foreign groups! Gordon doesn't find it strange to discover that a bank officer of one of the small banks that had lost millions now has his own New York City business. Name changes, aliases, identity thefts are all part of this investigation. It was not surprising that tracking the money resulted in discovering it was being provided and used by terrorist groups. What is interesting though was that those involved had been trained so well at an American university that their language skills were perfect and the knowledge they gained provided sufficient expertise to be able to infiltrate and work in America. Going undercover, Gordon takes on the role of a writer, wanting to find his roots, and hires a graduate of the university to assist him. One method of gaining information was to host a reunion of graduates, since the school had been closed many years ago. But Gordon's cover is blown and leads to major problems since a high-level intelligence agent wanted to defect and met with Gordon to determine if he could help him escape. And then it was discovered that terrorist members were running counterfeiting activities! All in all this was a good solid read, rather slow-paced, but with many twists and turns as new events and discoveries are made, that keeps high reader interest and involvement. I think I most was impressed by the coordinating efforts of the various groups involved--a nice change since many writers choose to highlight territorial issues among security agencies, which are intended to cause more intensity. Gordon's being able to meet and have an old friend from the Mossad help him was just one of the relationships between characters that made the book not only more believable but more interesting, intriguing, and a nice change of pace. This is a di

A Great Ride

This is a fast paced story from start to finish. It is a globe trotting story although most of it is set in the U.S. and Iran. Dan Gordon is a Justice Department investigator who is looking into financial crimes allegedly perpetrated by the 'Chameleon', a mysterious figure who has stolen millions of dollars while portraying himself as a variety of different people. Much of the investigation ends up being focused on Iran where Gordon faces enormous barriers in his search for the malefactor. It contains lots of very interesting cultural insights of the nation upended by the 1979 revolution and the enormous changes resulting from that. This part is so interesting that the book would be pretty good even without the thriller elements, although it has plenty of those as well. I have not read any previous books by Haggai Carmon, but I certainly intend to do so. This is very well done and this writer is one who should get lots more attention.

The Camelon Conspiracy

Like many people, I like reading a good "who dunnit" mystery story. When I first started the book, I wasn't sure that I was going to like this book - by the time I got into the second chapter, I was captivated! I didn't want to put the book down, I stayed up late just to read it and I put off production to get through this book. This story takes you on a trip to many different countries, describes the different cultures so that you feel as if you are there and has many near escapes that will keep you turning the pages. In this story, the author gives you intrigue, unexpected plot twists and turns, and such a very real picture that you wonder at times if this is truly fact or is it really just fiction. Dan Gorden, the main character, is very good at reviewing evidence and finding information that was overlooked by others. When he takes on the Chameleon Case, it had stumped international law enforcement for twenty years. His ability to zoom in on the points that had been missed by others leads him to more information which leads him into some very rough times. Seems he also has a knack for getting himself out of the tight binds he finds himself in - with the help of many friends along the way. Does he live through his escapades? Does he help to solve the case? Well, you are going to have to read this wonderful page turning book to find out!
