Publisher's Summary

In 1973, a gunman fired five shots into Colonel Joe Alon, a kind, unassuming Israeli Air Force pilot. As it turned out, Alon wasn't just a pilot and family man - he was a high-ranking Israeli military official and hero of the Israeli Air Force. The assassin was never found, and the case was closed. As a counterterrorism special agent, Fred Burton reopened the case and pursued the killer.

From swirling dogfights over Egypt and Hanoi to gun battles on the streets of Beirut, this action-packed history spans the globe and several fraught decades in our history. Chasing Shadows spins a gripping tale of agents, double agents, terrorists, and heroes as Burton chases leads around the globe in an effort to solve this decades-old murder.

Well done

Great research and well told story. Very interesting history in the background of the story of the death of Alon and I’m sure, much satisfaction for the family.

A history of terrorism

This book really shows how blind we have been to the terrorism threat throughout the world for the last 30+ years. Well worth the listen!
