The companion to the Oscar-nominated documentary, an unparalleled look inside Israel´s security establishment. Imagine the following situation: You have just received a tip that six suicide bombers are making their way into the heart of Israel´s major cities, each one to a different city, to set off explosions in the most crowded centers of population. How far would you go to stop the attacks? How would you sleep at night if you failed and one of the six terrorists reached his target and murdered dozens of innocent people? What would you do the next morning to extract your country from this murderous vicious cycle? For six former heads of the Shin Bet (Israel´s internal security service), these were not hypothetical questions but the realities and tormenting way of life for decades. In The Gatekeepers, which is based on extensive and lengthy interviews conducted to produce the award-winning film of the same name, six former heads of the Shin Bet speak with unprecedented candor on how they handled the toughest and tensest moments of their lives; on matters of life and death; on the missions they were involved in; on the historic opportunities for a better future that were missed by the leaders under whom they served; and the scars each of them bears until this very day. The Gatekeepers is a piercing and cruel self-examination of Israel´s security establishment and of a nation that has lived by its sword for so many years but has lost its faith in its ability to lay it down. 1.

It begins when the strangely marked body of a young prostitute is found just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. A similarly disfigured corpse of an American nun turns up. Then an Arab boy. As the list of victims grows, their only apparent connection is the bizarre markings on their bodies, it appears that Israel is facing its first serial murder case. David Bar-Lev, chief of the Pattern Crimes Unit of the Jerusalem police, is not so sure. A tough yet sensitive investigator with a powerful intelligence and a querying mind, he begins searching for a pattern that will explain the apparently random killings. At first the disorder is overwhelming, the case unfathomable. But then, as David probes deeper into this particular pattern crime, he is not so sure he wants to understand it. Pieces emerge that suggest that this time the key may lie within his own life. During the course of his investigation he must uncover and confront many painful secrets: The mysterious behavior of his father, Avraham, a retired psychoanalyst; The tragic suicide of his brother, Gideon, a talented fighter pilot; The hidden past of his beautiful Russian lover, the cellist Anna; And the possibility of corruption within the Jerusalem police and the ultra-secret General Security Services (Shin Bet). But despite the pain of these and other revelations, David probes on until he finally glimpses his astonishing solution - for, as one cop says of David Bar-Lev, ´´It is not enough for him to investigate. David has to understand.´´ The Jerusalem of Pattern Crimes is not the idealized Holy City of the guidebooks. Depicted as the capital of an angry, anguished, torn-up nation, a city of prostitutes, narcotics dealers, lusting journalists, ruthless politicians, and zealots of every stripe, it becomes here an arena for a remarkable story of crime and punishment. This is a book about patterns – in love, in rel 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dick Hill. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/000172/bk_acx0_000172_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
