Reviews

"More than just a thriller with endnotes. The author's accumulated contacts over the years have given him rare access to most of the individuals at the centre of the Hamas story." --The Times Literary Supplement

"An incisive insider's history about one of the world's most intractable conflicts--and a ripping yarn to boot." --Jon Lee Anderson, The New Yorker

"Suspense-filled." --Vanity Fair

"McGeough's work reminds us what real journalism looks like. " --Firedoglake.com

"[A] riveting account of Israel's botched poisoning of Mishal." --Library Journal
