Product Details


“This is an exciting and important tale—a wonderwork of history wrapped inside a political thriller with a fascinating hero.”
—Walter Isaacson, author of Kissinger
“Be forewarned: read the first page and you will not be able to put the book down until you are finished. Kati Marton has done the job of detective, historian, and journalist in telling the remarkable story of an assassination that altered the course of Middle Eastern history. And she has done all of those jobs superbly.”
—Jim Lehere, “The MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour,” and author of Blue Hearts
“Once again, Kati Marton has found the human pulse-point of history. A Death in Jerusalem shows how honor, fanaticism, naivetè, and vision write the destiny of an entire region of the world. As always, Marton’s vivid writing and stunning research make us see the tides of history in a whole new way.”
—Diane Sawyer, “Primetime Live”
“A riveting account—and reminder—of the most cowardly act of terrorism ever to go unpublished. Kati Marton documents the isolation of those whom an often pusillanimous ‘international community’ appoints to solve its most desperate problems.”
—Sir Brian Urquhart, former United Nations Under-Secretary for Special Political Affairs
“In this fascinating and important book, Kati Marton tells who murdered Count Folke Bernadotte in 1948 and shows how that wanton assassination has stained the politics of Israel ever since.”
—Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., author of One Thousand Days
