A body is found in a glitzy Gulf hotel — there are signs of a struggle but the door is locked from the inside. An Iranian nuclear scientist is machine-gunned by a passing motorcyclist as he waits at a traffic light with his wife beside him.

In each case, as in scores of others, there was only one real suspect — the Mossad, Israel’s fearsome foreign intelligence service.
