Bascomb, Neal. Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the World's Most Notorious Nazi. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2009.
Peake, Studies 53.3 (Sep. 2009) and Intelligencer 17.2 (Fall 2009), comments on the author's "attention to the operational details, both planning and execution. This was the first operation of its kind for the young service and the participants, and it is interesting to read how they adjusted to the mistakes made." This "is a fine book, well worth attention."

According to Pforzheimer, this book by the former head of Mossad "describes in detail ... the long-range, in-depth planning and operation for the Eichmann capture ... in Argentina in 1960." Constantinides says much can be "learned from this excellent account." Harel tells the story with a "realism seldom found [even] in works of intelligence fiction."
