Summary, etc.: "A riveting story about the murder that changed a nation: the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin,"
Ephron relates the parallel stories of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and his stalker, Yigal Amir, over the two years leading up to the assassination, as one of them planned political deals he hoped would lead to peace, and the other plotted murder. Amir believed that Rabin's peace effort amounted to a betrayal of Israel and the Jewish people. As he stalked Rabin over many months, the agency charged with safeguarding the Israeli leader missed key clues, overlooked intelligence reports, and then failed to protect him at the critical moment.
