The Volunteer: The Incredible True Story of an Israeli Spy on the Trail of International Terrorists | [Michael Ross, Jonathan Kay]

The Volunteer: The Incredible True Story of an Israeli Spy on the Trail of International Terrorists

In 1982, a 20-something named Michael Ross left home to backpack across Europe. Little did he know that his vacation would set in motion a chain of events that would hurl him into a career where the bosses are seasoned spies, and the work is tracking the world’s most dangerous terrorists. The Volunteer is a fast-paced memoir that provides insight into our world, both pre- and post-9/11, told by a man on the front lines in the war against terror.

Audible Editor Reviews

In 1982, when Michael Ross was a 21-year old Canadian Anglican, he visited Israel. Soon he had converted to Judaism, married an Israeli woman, served in the Israeli army, and joined the Mossad, Israel’s nerve center for counterterrorism, covert operations, and intelligence gathering. Over the next 20 years Ross lived the classic double life: family man and spy. The Volunteer is his memoir.

Performed briskly and with precision by Walter Dixon, The Volunteer seeks to introduce the listener to the life of a particular spy, and to situate Israel in the larger geopolitical context. Ross is a man whose dangerous life and career are the products of a love for a land that is not obviously his own, and his ideological defense of Israel is made clear.

    Story
    "Enjoyed this Espionage from another country!!"
    If you could sum up The Volunteer in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed hearing the Espionage story of a Mossad Agent. Usually I only hear about Espionage story from U.S. CIA agents. This book brought me into this world and I enjoyed it!!
