One bomb. One plane. 270 lives. The History-Making Struggle For Justice After Lockerbie.
The terrorist attack on Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, killed 270 people and remains the largest mass death in peacetime of Americans abroad. In a compelling and powerful narrative, this book chronicles one man's impassioned search for justice for the victims' families in a court of law - a story that goes far beyond the recent trial of two Libyan agents accused of planting the bomb.
Former diplomat and prosecutor of Nazi war criminals, Allan Gerson took the case, paving the way for US citizens to hold foreign governments accountable for terrorist acts. Despite opposition from within Washington DC, (in the face of public outcry that the suspects be turned over for trial), and even from some of the victims' families, he fought with a bulldog tenacity and emotions on fire.
Now on the brink of securing a landmark settlement from the Libyan government, co-authors Allan Gerson and Jerry Adler tell a gripping story.
