Publisher's Summary

A revelatory account of the cloak-and-dagger Israeli campaign to target the finances fueling terror organizations - an effort that became the blueprint for US efforts to combat threats like ISIS and drug cartels.
ISIS boasted $2.4 billion of revenue in 2015, yet for too long the global war on terror overlooked financial warfare as an offensive strategy. "Harpoon", the creation of Mossad legend Meir Dagan, directed spies, soldiers, and attorneys to disrupt and destroy money pipelines and financial institutions that paid for the bloodshed perpetrated by Hamas, Hezbollah, and other groups. Written by an attorney who worked with Harpoon and a best-selling journalist, Harpoon offers a gripping story of the Israeli-led effort, now joined by the Americans, to choke off the terrorists' oxygen supply, money, via unconventional warfare.

Critic Reviews

"It's a cliché after Watergate that the key investigation in most circumstances is to 'follow the money' (in the words of Deep Throat). This is the story of how Mossad led this movement and substantially affected investigations of terrorism and similarly important matters and how this influenced the CIA's later work in the same field. Bravo Mossad! Thanks for leading the way." [R. James Woolsey, CIA director (1993-95)]
"The riveting and untold story of the intelligence task force that launched a dynamic new front in the war on terror. A thrill ride with one of the most important Israeli start-ups of them all." [Tamir Pardo, director of the Mossad (2011-2016)]
"Money drives terrorism. If funding is cut, terrorism is reduced. A groundbreaking look at how spies, soldiers, statesmen, and lawyers waged a relentless campaign to dry up the financial streams that funded terrorism against Israel and the United States. A great read about a compelling issue." (Professor Alan Dershowitz, leading civil rights attorney)

Follow the money

The Israelis know how to fight terrorism. They’ve been facing it on a large scale long before the west and have worked out how to do it effectively. Once again, lessons can be learnt from history both modern and ancient.

This is an excellent book which goes into significant detail about money and terrorism. I quite enjoyed it. The narrator is good. The book is well written. It seems odd that I enjoyed a book which is essentially about death.

Quite possibly (if not definitely) the best book I've ever listened to! Do yourself the favor.

Great listen.

This is a profoundly interesting book. Very happy "it found me." It kind of curls your hair a little hearing this account.... I can't believe the government let it be published.
