I pretty much stumbled across references to this book by accident and its write up, in many ways, matched some of the purported tales of the real events leading up to the Lockerbie disaster and thereafter. A lot of things don't seem to gel about the official version of events and I think most people would agree there is something more. The question is, does Trail of the Octopus provide the answers ?
Having read it, I cannot say that it does or it doesn't. It provides a different explanation but whether this is the 'real story' or not, I guess few know.
It is, however, a good read and I don't mean that in a 'novel' sense. It gives a fascinating insight into the politics of the Middle East and although the book is somewhat dated now, most readers will have no trouble relating to the period the book covers.
If it turns out that it is, in fact, no more than a novel, then it is a cracker. If, however, it turns out have even a semblence of truth, then we are indeed in dark times.
I would suggest that if ever a book merited an update to tell what has happened since then to now, this is it.
Well worth reading, well worth it.
This book I felt was difficult to read at times as it went into great detail politically and trying to keep track was difficult. I found the information written about the hostages (John MaCarthy etc) in the Bekha Valley interesting. Again another cover up.
A very detailed account and very informative. Would recommend.
Lockerbie was a big cover up.
I can't say much more.
