Assassination has been dramatized by literature and politicized by infamous murders throughout history, and for former CIA agent and bestselling author Robert Baer - it’s a source of endless fascination, speculation, and intrigue.
In his new book, The Perfect Kill, Baer wraps a captivating look at the history and theory of political assassination around the tale of his dangerous, two-decade-long pursuit of one of the world’s deadliest assassins, Hajj Radwan. Hajj Radwan was at the center of all of Hezbollah’s mayhem from the 1980s until his own assassination in 2008.
Robert Baer is one of the most accomplished agents in CIA history, and a winner of the Career Intelligence Medal. He is currently the national security affairs analyst for CNN.
