Be warned! Once you pick up, “Train in the Distance: A journalist’s search for truth, freedom and revenge” by Larry Butchins, it will be hard to put down. It is the kind of book that will make you laugh and cry, as you uncover the intricacies of the riveting story, which starts in South Africa and ends in Israel.  It is told through the eyes of “Adam,” an investigative and idealistic journalist who begins his career by exposing the evils of apartheid – and opposes the death penalty – during what the author calls “the years of struggle” in South Africa, but ends up moving with his family to Israel, where he is recruited by the Mossad to uncover the evil mastermind behind a suicide bombing.
