More on Munich Games:

When Oren Simon, a Mossad agent based in Berlin, intercepted a message on a dark web forum seven days before the match that suggested an attack on the Israeli team, German authorities were immediately alerted. Michael Hahn (BKA) instructed Maria Koller, a German Army officer in Los Angeles of Lebanese descent and good knowledge of the Islamic scene, to work with Oren against official protocol.

The days leading up to the match are full of excitement. When their worst fears finally come true, despite all efforts, neither Oren nor Maria is prepared for the threat they suddenly face.
