from the cover: "In the summer of 1978, Musa al Sadr, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Shia sect in Lebanon, disappeared mysteriously while on a visit to Libya. As in the Shia myth of the "Hidden Imam", this modern-day Imam left his followers upholding his legacy and awaiting his return. Considered an outsider when he had arrived in Lebanon in 1959 from his native Iran, he gradually assumed the role of charismatic mullah, and was instrumental in transforming the Shia, a quiescent and downtrodden Islamic minority, into committed political activists."

The Hunt for the Engineer: The Inside Story of How Israel's Counterterrorist Forces Tracked and Killed The Hamas Master Bomber, Katz, Samuel M
4 Katz, Samuel M The Hunt for the Engineer: The Inside Story of How Israel's Counterterrorist Forces Tracked and Killed The Hamas Master Bomber
The Lyons Press 2002 softcover used 306 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
from the cover: "His real name was Yehiya Ayyash, but he was known to the world as "The Engineer". During a twenty-four-month campaign of terror, beginning on April 6, 1994, he killed 130 Israelis and wounded nearly 500. His first car bomb, detonated by a suicide bomber, killed eight and wounded thirty people; a week later a man devastated a crowded bus with 50 pounds of explosives strapped to his body. More bombings, all masterminded by the Engineer, followed with horrible regularity. As the carnage in the streets of Israeli cities mounted, the Engineer became the most wanted man in modern Israeli history.

The result was one of the largest manhunts in history. The search involved Britain's M15, the Royal Jordanian Special Forces, the FBI, and the New York City Police Department. In charge of catching Ayyash was the Shin Bet, the most elite of Israel's secret services.

Here, author Katz reveals for the firts time how the Shin Bet conducted its mission against the elusive genius. Truly an expert in disguise, Ayyash on one occasion escaped detection dressed as an old Arab woman and on another as an Orthodox Jewish student.

As the search wore on, and the killings continued, Ayyash became revered amount Palestinians, more than 100,000 of whom turned out for his funeral.

The Hunt For the Engineer is a real-life thriller that provides a rare look behind the scenes of Israel's secretive security apparatus and how it operates within the stark context of life and death in the Holy Land, where bombs are once again shaping the political landscape."
