But we see that in this case, not only were some of the (albeit lower level) terrorist brought to justice, but it's the only case I am aware of where a ruthless dictator eventually cried uncle, in no small part as a result of this investigation and prosecution. Gadaffi admitted responsibility for PA 103, gave up nuclear weapons a few years later, and even recently agreed to pay millions of dollars to the victim's families to put this event behind Libya.
Because this is a fairly detailed and technical book, I would highly recommend it as a textbook for an upper level undergraduate, or even a graduate class in National Security Studies or International Relations; jamesmcasey.com
Marquise's work is important on three levels. Using practical insight, law enforcement skills, and investigative strategy, Marquise provides a step-by-step account for criminal investigators. Second, it is an excellent case study for criminal justice classes. (My students are using it to develop a training session on major case investigation.) Finally, and most importantly, Marquise has told the story with one group of people in mind, the families of Pan Am Flight 103. His compassion for the victims flows throughout the narrative.
As news networks and public attention jump from one terrorist attack to the next, Marquise stays focused on the victims of a single event in the past. The world may have forgotten their life-altering pain. Marquise has not.
