How the Killing of One Man Changed the Fate of the Promised LandLarge Print - 2016
Tel Aviv, 1942. Avraham Stern - criminal leader of the bloodthirsty Stern Gang - was in hiding. Stern was a poet and mystic who believed himself destined for greatness. Assistant Superintendent Geoffrey Morton, a middle-class Londoner, was tasked with tracking him down. What happened that morning would be endlessly contested but two things were clear: Morton had cornered Stern and, minutes later, shot him dead. Based on revelatory research, the private archive of Morton and interviews with witnesses, The Reckoning is the first book to tell the tale of a rebel who terrorized Palestine and the lawman determined to stop him.
