Having read the advance copy of
The Precipice Option,
I must tell you how I appreciated the contribution
it makes to these yet untold events of World War II, and how much I
enjoyed the intriguing and some of the amusing descriptions the writer
offers in the midst of terrible mayhem. What an exciting movie it can

I am so much into the book and
sharing Kastner s frustrations - will he succeed to save or will he be too
late? I admit, I usually do not live the books I read, so it only shows
how well written it is.

Alex Kaufman s book is in my
view, the richest documentation of Kastner s life and work during World
War II in Europe. The way Kaufman chooses to tell the story facilitates
the intricacies of the story and the understanding of the events for the
younger generation reader.

It is about time that someone
had the courage and the persistence to set the record straight about
Rudolf Kastner s feats in saving hundreds of thousands of lives in Nazi
occupied Europe during World War II. This fact-based novel does this in
riveting style, while at the same time, it sets the record straight on a
simmering and controversial issue.

from the first page to the last combine beautifully to provide the reader

writing makes this book spellbinding.

Kaufman has created a
psychological thriller in an historically based adventure novel that is a
fascinating read. To tell his story, he draws on his deep understanding of
human nature, aided by personal interviews with the actual participants
and he conducts the reader into an enormous suspenseful bluff and
mind-games involving the ultimate stakes.
