Having just read this book, I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the events surrounding the awful tragedy at Lockerbie. In this book, the practical experiences of the many police officers, the very graphic descriptions of those first on the scene and the political situation are all examined in great detail. The whole situation is sensitively handled, especially for the victims. My only adverse comment would be that the author seems to have a few axes to grind and these are quite clearly expressed in this book. I would recommend it to any readers who are interested in this subject.

John Crawford demands closure but huge doubts remain about the prosecution's case and the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC) in 2007 found prima facie evidence of a miscarriage of justice. Their report makes plain that the gross unreliability of the prosecution's key witness Tony Gauci is one of the main reasons for the referral of Megrahi's case back to the Appeal Court. Gauci was interviewed 17 times by Scottish and Maltese police during which he gave a series of inconclusive statements and there is clear evidence that leading questions had been put to him. Gauci was obviously not the "full shilling" (as Lord Fraser, Scotland's senior law officer in the investigation, later admitted) and yet the US paid him $2 million for his 'revised identification'.
The theory that the bomb entered the system in Malta as a piece of unaccompanied baggage and rattled around Europe before finding its way onto Pan Am 103 in London has been rightly ridiculed. In fact, not only was there no evidence that the bomb had been put on board in Malta, but Air Malta had won a libel action in 1993 establishing that it was not! The evidence linking Megrahi to the atrocity is so fragile, so complex and so full of unsupported assumptions it depends almost totally upon the integrity of the forensic scientists. It is therefore unfortunate that it would be difficult to find practioners of the science with more dodgy track records than the three involved in this investigation. It should be a matter of deep concern that Megrahi is the only man convicted on the evidence of these three individuals whose conviction was not reversed on appeal.

The name Lockerbie will forever be remembered for the wrong reasons because up until that cold December day in 1988 the town of Lockerbie, was a small quiet town that was tucked away from many. The book is written with first hand knowledge and experience on assisting in a case that still remains the deadliest terrorist attack and aviation disaster to have ever happened in Britain. It's truthful, insightful and doesn't theorise in anyway about what happened that night.

A must read especially if your Scottish. Brings home the truth of senseless violence we can do to others and in a witnesses account of what was seen in the aftermath.
It still left me with questions and was biased understandably from a police detectives perspective.
This has to be read and respect to those that had to work or were involved in any way.
