    At the age of seventeen Adolfo Kaminsky had narrowly escaped deportation to Auschwitz and was living in Nazi occupied Paris, using forged documents to hide in plain sight. Due to his expert knowledge of dyes and his ability to masterfully re-produce official documents with an artistic eye, he was recruited to join the Jewish underground. He soon became the primary forger for the Resistance in Paris, working tirelessly with his network to create papers that would save an estimated 14,000 men, women and children from certain death. Upon the Liberation and for the next twenty-five years Kaminsky worked as a professional photographer. But, recognizing the fight for freedom had not ended with the defeat of the Nazis, and driven by his own harrowing experiences, he continued to secretly forge documents for thousands of refugees, exiles, immigrants, freedom fighters and pacifists. "My life as a forger is one long, uninterrupted resistance... against inequality, segregation, racism, injustice, fascism and dictatorships." Kaminsky kept his past cloaked in secrecy well into his later life, until his daughter and biographer Sarah Kaminsky convinced him to share the details of the life-threatening work he did on behalf of people fighting for justice and peace throughout the world.

    As the son-in-law of Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser and a close adviser to his successor, Anwar Sadat, Ashraf Marwan had access to the deepest secrets of his country's government. But Marwan had a secret of his own: He was a spy for the Mossad, Israel's renowned intelligence service. Under the Mossad code name "the Angel," Marwan turned Egypt into an open book and saved Israel from a devastating defeat by tipping off the Mossad in advance of the joint Egyptian-Syrian attack on Yom Kippur in 1973.Marwan eluded Egypt's ruthless secret police for decades. Then, in 2007, his body was found in a bed of roses in the garden below his apartment building in London. Police suspected he had been thrown from his balcony on the fifth floor, but the case has remained unsolved--until now.Drawing on meticulous research and exclusive interviews with key figures involved, The Angel is the first book to discuss Marwan's motives, how his identity as a Mossad spy was deliberately exposed by none other than the former chief of Israel's Military Intelligence, and how the information he provided was used--and misused. It also sheds new light on the modern history of the Middle East and the crucial role of human espionage in shaping the fate of nations. And, for the first time, it answers the questions haunting Marwan's legacy: In the end, whom did Ashraf Marwan really betray? And who killed him?
