On a warm Saturday night in July 1973 in Bethesda Maryland, a gunman stepped out from behind a tree and fired five point-blank shots into Joe Alon, an unassuming Israeli Air Force pilot and family man.

As it turned out, Alon wasn't just a pilothe was a high-ranking military official and with intelligence ties.

The assassin was never found and the case was closed. In 2007, Fred Burtonwho had since become a State Department counterterrorism special agentreopened the case. Here, in Chasing Shadows, Burton spins a gripping tale of the secret agents, double dealings, terrorists and heroes he encounters he chases leads around the globe in an effort to solve this decades-old murder.
