Vengence is a a true story about a team of Isreali counter-terrorist who set out to avenge the murder of 11 Isreali atheletes by Arab terrorist. It takes the reader through an exciting journey all over Europe as the team seeks out one by one top terrorist leaders. You'll love it if your into secret agent and spy type themes. It reads easy, and you'll find yourself not wanting to put it down.

I liked this book. I do not want to sound morbid, but I almost wanted to cheer each time they were successful. After the 9/11 attacks, every American will want our government to form the same type of team to hunt down the terrorists and their leaders. This book moves fast and gives a very interesting view into the Mossad. There are a lot of details, but in no way do they slow the story down. This book is truly exciting. The James Bond tools they use are another fascinating part of the story. You should buy this book.

George Jonas does a good job in writing about the devestating Munich massacre. He gives the reader insight into the history of the event that triggered years of revenge. His account is mostly one sided, from his source, but it moves along well and the description of the men and women is believable.The covert world that the assassins live in is one that you rarely get to read about. The role of world governments in the retribution is something from a spy novel.

A very engaging and fast paced account of the systematic elimination of the criminals responsible for the Munich massacre.
Jonas is a master of the subject. Great detail and a gratifying read.

This was a thrilling and heart stopping story. I could not put it down until it was done. It is much better than Spielberg's "Munich." In fact, the stories are very different.

Not a bad book, not what I was expecting though. I prefer ' The Quest ' over ' Vengance ' and Giorgio Kostantinos over George Jonas.

After reading 'Vengeance,' I felt drawn and yet uplifted by the man who lead a team of five into a behind-the-scenes battle with evil that is still being fought in the 21st Century. What makes this novel relevent is that these men fought fire with fire, employing the same tools used by terrorists and assassins, forty years later. Unfortunately, that vengeance wasn't fought on a larger scale and without international support or sanction, for the threat of these maniacs and their tactics still lingers over us all. It wasn't a crusade against all Islamic peoples, but one against those who committed the heinous crime of going into an Olympic compound in 1972, where men and women from all over the world were assembled in the name of peace, and killing Israeli athletes, while the world just watched -- and did nothing. On a small scale, it tells a larger story -- of one man battling with himself, and eventually with those who had assigned him an impossible task. Is it a true story? Take it a step further, as to whether President Bush lied, alone, when American troops and a coalition of other nations went to war on the controversial question of weapons of mass destruction being concealed in Iraq. In the next few weeks of this writing, tapes proving otherwise will reportedly surface to show indeed, that Saddam Hussein was planning to unleash these weapons on the world. Are we a better world without Saddam Hussein? In 'Vengeance,' five men sacrificed their lives and their consciences to tell the world that terrorism will not be tolerated. It is the prime message in 'Vengeance.' Let us hope it is the message of the future.
I would also recommend-The Quest-by George Kostantinos
