Inhaltsangabe

From the New York Times best-selling coauthors of Under Fire - the riveting story of the kidnapping and murder of CIA Station Chief William Buckley.

After a deadly terrorist bombing at the American embassy in Lebanon in 1983, only one man inside the CIA possessed the courage and skills to rebuild the networks destroyed in the blast: William Buckley. But the new Beirut station chief quickly became the target of a young terrorist named Imad Mughniyeh.

Beirut Rules is the pulse-by-pulse account of Buckley's abduction, torture, and murder at the hands of Hezbollah terrorists. Drawing on never-before-seen government documents as well as interviews with Buckley's co-workers, friends and family, Burton and Katz reveal how the relentless search for Buckley in the wake of his kidnapping ignited a war against terror that continues to shape the Middle East to this day.

Kritikerstimmen

“In these pages, Fred Burton and Samuel Katz ably describe the selfless service and ultimate sacrifice of CIA’s William F. Buckley, murdered brutally while held as a hostage in Lebanon. Beirut Rules can’t bring this quiet hero back to life. But it will show a new generation the value of a life well lived in service of country.” (President George H. W. Bush) 

“Burton and Katz have done it again! An intense, incredibly well-written tale of terrorism, treachery, and tradecraft. Beirut Rules is an absolute must-read!” (Number one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor)

Beirut Rules is a masterpiece of intelligence writing. I cannot think of any book on spying that I have read that has impressed me more in terms of its writing quality and research. I didn’t think the details of this story could ever be told, but Burton and Katz have done it...and done it beautifully. Bill Buckley was a hero and inspiration for all of us in the CIA, and I am grateful that the authors have honored his memory by presenting his life and sacrifice to the American public. Be prepared to be moved to tears, as I was." (James M. Olson, former chief of CIA counterintelligence and author of Fair Play: The Moral Dilemmas of Spying
