In the secret world of spies and covert operations, no other intelligence service continues to be surrounded by myth and mystery as does the Mossad. Created in 1951 to ensure the future of an embattled Israel, Mossad is responsible for the most audacious and thrilling feats of espionage, counterterrorism, and assassination. To some, Mossad is the precise and at times lethal instrument of Israel's will, a fiercely dedicated group of men and women: an elite intelligence arm. To others, Mossad is a fearsome intelligence organization loyal only to those who can control it: a shadowy ruthless cabal of spies. But no one has ever gotten close enough to Mossad to know the truth. Until now.
Gideon's Spies documents the Mossad's deepest secrets from the end of the Cold War to the present day. You'll learn how the Mossad undercut the CIA's position as the Vatican's prime intelligence source, how TWA Flight 800 was ruthlessly exploited by the Mossad, and most explosive of all, Mossad's involvement in the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayad. Gideon's Spies reveals the Mossad as it truly is: brilliant, ruthless, flawed, but ultimately awesome. Download and start listening now!

    " A seminal piece on not just the Mossad but gives a pretty accurate description of the military state that is Israel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean | 2/4/2014

    " This is well worth the read; gives you quite a good impression of how powerful the Israel Mossad is! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mac | 1/17/2014

    " Describes some of the most important events in the post World war 2 history of the world with stunning detail. The Israel-Arab rivalry has transcended decades of modern history with struggle, rife, conspiracy and assassinations. No better book than this to get an idea of how Israel has dealt with times to fight, often times ugly, for its existence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/16/2014

    " There are plenty of stories based on interviews about Mossad actions in the past. I felt like the author was looking more for errors and mistakes than victories, but it has whetted my desire to read more on the topic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hadrian | 1/13/2014

    " Interesting subject material, with a decent blend of policy/government description and action scenes. I enjoyed it despite it dragging a bit in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Matthews | 1/6/2014

    " Fabulous book. Easy to read (and surprisingly addictive), told me a lot and confirmed more that I suspected. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in espionage history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 12/31/2013

    " Reading a book like this you must keep an open mind that what you're reading is information that has been obtained by interviews, but at the same time you feel there are pieces missing either redacted or withheld for security reasons. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn Ryan Rosa | 12/6/2013

    " A page-turning history of the Mossad. You don't know anything about the state of Israel if you haven't read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 11/8/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/23/2013

    " This was a well researched history of the Mossad, but I couldn't keep track of all of the people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jorge | 10/17/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andres | 3/15/2013

    " Some interesting stories but very hard to believe all of them. It was also very repetitive in many cases and interest in the chapters wained towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Sommer | 10/24/2012

    " Every page a true James Bond thriller "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy Anderson | 10/17/2012

    " wow, if half of this book is true, its scary.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David | 5/23/2012

    " A steaming pile of unsourced stories and rumor. Even for an airplane book, not worth the price. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay Jackson | 5/7/2012

    " Good, but got unnecessarily long-winded. Some factual gaffes (like "Ft.. Bragg, Georgia) turned me off after about 500 pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 4/22/2012

    " updated chapters are weaker than the originals. "

    " Self serving "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Juergens | 7/28/2011

    " Lots of intriguing stories but not sure how rooted in truth this book is. Definitely paints a messed up picture of international affairs and the extent nations will go to secure power. The author does jump around a lot but aside from that, pretty engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nataly | 5/20/2011

    " this is one of my first thick translate novel i've read when I was in junior school... I love novel suspense, specially this one!!! too bad somebody forgot to return the book back to me... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 10/3/2010

    " This was a very interesting book until the "added" chapters at the end where much of the early sections of the book were repeated and the author decided to insert himself into the text many, many times. A great history into the Mossad for those that have little knowledge of it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andres | 9/26/2010
