The 1997 attempted assassination of Hamas leader Khalid Mishal by Mossad gained little public attention despite setting into motion a flurry of international diplomacy, culminating in the direct intervention of the US and then President Clinton. In a headlong narrative, with high-speed car chases, prisoner exchanges and international scandal that threatened the entire region, McGeough uses unprecedented interviews with Mishal and key players in Amman, Jerusalem and Washington to expose the rise of Hamas.
