In 1985, the U.S. Justice Department started retaining Carmon as its attorney to represent the government’s interests in its Israeli civil litigation matters, a task he continues to perform. Carmon is also the legal counsel to the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, and in 2007, he successfully represented the European Union in civil litigation cases in Israel. He also represents business entities with transnational interests. Haggai Carmon is a member of the U.S Association of Former Intelligence Officers.
Haggai Carmon, son of a banker and writer, grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel. Following a career involving international activities, he graduated cum laude from the Tel Aviv University School of Law. In 1986, he graduated from St. John’s University in New York with a Certificate in International Law and Diplomacy and in 1987 with an M.A. degree in Government and Politics. In 1986, Prime Minister Peres dispatched Carmon as a special envoy to the Philippines to establish broader cooperation with the new Aquino government in combating terror.
The intelligence thrillers that Haggai Carmon authors are inspired by the sensitive undercover work he performed for two decades. The U.S. governmeny assigned him with the worldwide responsibility (except for the U.S.) for gathering intelligence that required work in more than thirty countries. The thrillers describe CIA/MOSSAD cooperation where the protagonist Dan Gordon, a Mossad veteran now working for the U.S Department of Justice in foreign intelligence gathering, discovers that the seemingly routine cases he is handling are espionage or terrorist related.
To date, Haggai Carmon has written five novels in the Dan Gordon Intelligence Thriller series: Triple Identity, The Red Syndrome, The Chameleon Conspiracy, Triangle of Deception and Defection Games. Although the thrillers are fiction, their authenticity is unparalleled, a fact attested to by the identity and words of the individuals who wrote the books’ introductions.
For Triple Identity: Sarah McKee, former general counsel, INTERPOL, USA and an “Anonymous” former top MOSSAD executive.
For The Red Syndrome: Brigadier General Ephraim Sneh, Israel’s former Deputy Minister of Defense and Minister of Health.
For The Chameleon Conspiracy: Andre LeGallo, former top CIA operative.
For The Triangle of Defection: Jacob Perry, former director of SHABACK, Israel’s internal security service.
For Defection Games: David Epstein, former Director of Foreign Litigation for the U.S Department of Justice.
AMAZON Publishing has acquired in September 2012 the re-publishing and distribution rights for the Dan Gordon intelligence thriller series, and has also acquired an option to publish and distribute all future thrillers in the series.
