The page-turning, news-breaking, inside account of Israel's state-sponsored assassination programs, from the man hailed by David Remnick as "arguably [Israel's] best investigative reporter."
Advance praise for Rise and Kill First
"Absolutely revelatory. Ronen Bergman's history of Israel's 'targeted killings' leaves few secrets in the closet. Reading this book is like devouring a John le Carr#65533; spy thriller with footnotes, but Bergman also grapples with the hard questions and ultimately writes a tragic story of endless tactical victories leading to a strategic dead end. Anyone who cares about the fate of Israel and Palestine must devour this formidable history." --Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, author of The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames, and director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography at CUNY Graduate Center
