In the secret world of spies and covert operations, no other intelligence service continues to be surrounded by myth and mystery, or commands respect and fear, like Israel's Mossad. Formed in 1951 to ensure an embattled Israel's future, the Mossad has been responsible for the most audacious and thrilling feats of espionage, counterterrorism, and assassination ever ventured. Gideon's Spies draws from classified documents, confidential sources, and closed-door interviews with Mossad agents, informants, and spymasters to reveal the organization's deepest secrets. This fifth edition is completely updated with new information, including the Mossad hospital raid that eventually uncovered sleeper cells in Britain, the assassination of the world's second most-wanted terrorist, the discovery of an unknown nuclear facility in Iran, the intricate relationship between Israeli intelligence and the Bush administration's war on terror, and why one former Mossad chief says, "We are looking down the barrel of World War III unless the world wakes up."

I think this book is a bit mixed. There is a blurb about Princess Diana, which had nothing to do with Mossad, as far as I know.

Other than it. this book could use a good editor, the flow is rather choppy, and at times, it veers between being factual and then "What?"
