8vo - 303 pages, photos. Yehiya Ayyash, the Palestinian bomb builder known to the world simply as "The Engineer," killed 130 Israelis and wounded 500 during a twenty-four month campaign of terror. Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin had ordered the state to mobilize all its resources to stop the bombings. The result was one of the largest manhunts in recent history which spread over the entire globe and involved Britain's MI5, the Royal Jordanian Special Forces, the FBI and the New York City Police Department. Charged with the task of catching Ayyash was the Shin Bet, the most secretive and elite of Israel's secret services.
