The secrets behind Mossad, the world’s most respected and hidden Secret Service Organization

It vividly brings alive the leaders, the agents and the ‘Mission Impossible’ actions of the Israeli Secret Service.

The book begins in 1971 with an explosive scene of Hamas terrorists being ambushed near a beach in Gaza by Israeli commandos. They are led by twenty-six year old intrepid Meir Dagan who in 2002 launches a memorable career as head of the Mossad. Called ‘the ultimate James Bond’, Bar-Zohar vividly describes how Dagan has stymied the Iranian atomic bomb, more than anyone for fifteen years.

The Mossad also reveals in dramatic detail how Israelis purloined the text of Kruschchev’s secret speech denouncing Stalin’s atrocities, how Mossad agents captured Eichmann in Argentina and smuggled him out of Buenos Aires as an El Al crewman, and the story behind the Mossad learning of a Syrian nuclear facility.

With up-to-date stories including the current impasse between Israel and Iran.


This book tells what should have been known and isn't - that Israel's hidden force is as formidable as its recognised physical strength.

Shimon Peres, President of Israel
