The book by Susan Williams is a thoroughgoing investigation into the death of Hammarskjold, the assumption that he was killed is implicit throughout the whole book though the evidence is not entirely convincing. However it is well written and certainly an absorbing read. Various theories are put forward, none of which can be considered to be final one way or the other, as the ending rather lamely seems to imply. But to capture the feeling of the times, the uncertainties, the intrigues the sheer perversity of the times is absorbingly illustrated. The final choice is left to the reader. Having spent years in Zambia around the time I cannot make a choice. The goings on in Africa, right or wrong, is and will always be an inigma. The author is to be congratulated for illustrating this point so thoroughly.
