In the secret world of spies and covert operations, no other intelligence service continues to be as surrounded by myth and mystery as the Mossad. "Gideon's Spies" reveals that all too often the truth exceeds all the fantasies about the Mossad. Revised and updated for 2012, this new edition includes: The story of how the Mossad assassinated the Hamas terror Commander in Dubai in 2010 and the role of MI6 in the assassination; a look inside the modern Mossad training school; the departure of long-serving Mossad chief Meir Dagan, replaced by Tamir Pardo; how the Mossad failed to provide the intelligence for the infamous "flotilla" attack on ships carrying food to Gaza; and the unresolved murder of a Mossad spy in London.
