Or, take your food to 't fret! Parking options are readily available near Sabra?s Place. Shake Off Mischa Hiller. A novel set in the smoke and mirrors world of the Palestine Liberation Organisation and the Israeli Mossad. Michel, the PLO operative, is an orphan survivor of the Sabra Refugee Camp massacre and much of the novel tells of his recruitment and training before being sent to London on a secret mission. A strange new officer causes unrest among the soldiers and native servants in a Belgian-occupied Congolese garrison. A puzzling read as the narrative changes between several men - I struggled to distinguish between their voices - and the title is inspired by a woman’s ambition but there are no female characters. I found some of the camp’s views off-putting, but then it was evocative.
