Dan Gordon is a spy for the CIA.
He is also a lawyer for the U.S. Justice Department specializing in asset recovery and intelligence gathering. He is also a former Mossad agent, decorated and considerably experienced.
Born in Israel, Gordon joined the Israeli special forces when his time for the military came. After his 30-month stint was over, he entered university where he earned a degree in International Relations. Knowing that his job prospects were not good unless he worked for the government, Gordon was looking for anything to pay the bills. That was when he was approached by Mossad. His military talents coupled with his schooling made him a prime candidate and he was hungry. He stayed with Mossad for several years, taking part in numerous missions until his cover was blown and his covert effectiveness was destroyed. Rather than take a desk job, he elected to resign.
For a career to last the rest of his life he chose to return to school, study law, get his degree, and then move to the U.S. Soon he was offered a job with the Justice Department based on his international knowledge and his understanding of the intelligence communities. Throw in an impressive aptitude with unraveling financial schenanigans and you have a much sought after investigator. Gordon soon found, though, that even fairly innocuous cases can mushroom when countries are involved.
But his latest professional change came when he was approached by the CIA. In view of his frequent trips abroad mandated by his work with Justice and in light of his history with Mossad, he would make a terrific asset, one not likely to be thought a spook because everyone knew he was a shark.
