    Real-life spy thriller that reads like it was written by Clancy. About a Mossad case officer who recruits Syrian general in Paris and runs him single-handed for more than twenty years as Israel’s top asset in the Arab world, code-named Red Falcon. But when false intelligence from Red Falcon brings Israel and Syria to the brink of war, and Mossad walks back the cat, nothing is quite as it seems. Either the case officer was making it all up — or Red Falcon was running him.

    That was an awesome (and very long) read. I think he was his own agent. Not long ago I read a book about the Jewish children who were taken in and hidden by Christian families, convents, etc. The were given quite a drilling beforehand to forget their old identities and assume the new ones. Their lives depended on forgetting who they really were. The process was so thorough that many of them have had to deal with the fallout all their adult lives. The make-believe became more real than the reality.
