Reveals in compelling detail the inside story of the world's largest murder enquiry – the investigation into the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 which blew up over Lockerbie in 1988, with the loss of 270 lives.
Written by one of Britain’s leading investigative journalists, it shows for the first time how the bombing was planned at a secret meeting at the headquarters of the Libyan intelligence agency.
Based on Scottish police and FBI files, and interviews with over a hundred of the key witnesses in Britain, Germany and America, this book reveals how the brilliant work of two of Britain's leading forensic scientists led police to reconstruct the bomb plot. With its mixture of terrorists boasts – the man who planned the bombing held a champagne party bragging ‘They’ll never know how I did it’ - and the incredible stories of those on the ground who survived, this is a thoroughly researched and chilling book.
