"À la suite de la prise d'otages de Munich organisée par Septembre noir, le gouvernement israélien décide d'exécuter plusieurs responsables palestiniens liés à cet attentat. Avner, ancien garde du corps de Golda Meir et agent du Mossad, est chargé de constituer une équipe fonctionnant de manière autonome (Avner sera ainsi obligé de démissionner officiellement du Mossad, pour ne pas impliquer ce dernier). Ainsi, il sera chargé avec les quatre hommes qui composent son équipe d'assassiner plusieurs responsables palestiniens à travers l'Europe (à Rome, Paris, Chypre ou encore Londres), mais aussi au Liban. Au fur et à mesure de leur équipée, ils se rendent compte que les terroristes qu'ils abattent sont remplacés par de plus dangereux encore. Chasseurs, ils craignent d'être eux-mêmes traqués et la méfiance se transforme en psychose. Petit à petit, Avner et certains membres de son équipe se demandent si un État démocratique tel qu'Israël a le droit d'exécuter des hommes alors qu'il interdit la peine de mort, et, surtout, de procéder à ces exécutions en dehors de tout cadre juridique. Deux membres de l'équipe sur cinq meurent assassinés, un autre meurt probablement dans un accident. Ils assassinent notamment Abdel Wael Zwaiter dans son immeuble à Rome, Mahmoud Hamchari dans son appartement à Paris, Hussein al Bachir dans une chambre d'hotel à Nicosie. Ils tentent de tuer Ali Hassan Salameh mais échouent."--Site wikipédia.org, consulté le 20 janvier 2017
