After three years' military service, Mordechai Vanunu answered an ad for a control room job at the nuclear research center near Dimona. In 1976 he was assigned to Mochon 2, where he discovered the nuclear weapons program that he later divulged to Peter Hounam. Before his story could be published however, Vanunu met Cindy, a beautiful American woman who lured him to Rome. Caught in a trap, he was attacked by agents from Mossad (the Israeli secret service), drugged, and smuggled to Israel to stand trial for treason. Since then, Vanunu has spent more than 12 years in solitary confinement. In The Woman from Mossad, Hounam details the kidnapping and what happened to Cindy when she was exposed by the author. He also names governments that secretly helped Israel.

About the Author:

One of Britain's best-known investigative journalists, Peter Hounam has studied murder and corruption in many countries. With The Sunday Times Insight Team he broke the story of Mordechai Vanunu, the Israeli nuclear whistle-blower. In 1997, he exposed the dangerous world of international cigarette smuggling for BBC Television. In the same year, he won the What-The-Papers-Say Scoop of the Year Award. At age 55, he counts among his accomplishments the book Who Killed Diana? and an exposé of South Africa's nuclear weapons program.
