Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a solidly researched account of the 1988 explosion aboard Pan Am flight 103 that killed 270 people and the investigation thereafter. Emerson, a former senior editor at U.S. News & World Report , and Duffy, currently assistant managing editor at that magazine, argue persuasively that the United States can no longer play by the old rules in combating international terrorism. They urge the United States to get involved directly in the security arrangements for airlines operating inside and outside its borders. The authors may get their wish: after Lockerbie, a Presidential Commission was established to review international airline security; its report is due to be released this month. Intended for a general reading audience, this is an important addition to all library collections.

The best thing about this book is it takes the perspective of people involved in investigating the cause of the crash. It shows what kind of sacrifices these people have to make in order to get relaible information about the crash to the public. It also shows what its like when two different countries are involved in an investigation. If you want to know what it is like to be a disaster investigator, buy this book.

Exactly 7 days after PanAm flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie, I was on PanAm flight 103 from Frankfurt through London and on to New York. Now, some 15 years later, I stumbled upon this book and, out of morbid curiosity, read it. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the research and informal writing style adopted to tell this story. My only complaint is that the information is dated. Since its printing in 1990, more information has been collected as a result of the continued investigation. Lybia and Qaddafi were the ultimate bad guys here. There was also the successful law suit presented by the survivors of the victims of the disaster. I would suggest that Emerson and Duffy write a "sequel."

Steve Emerson gets to the point, it is the radical Arab factions that are out to get America.
Why can't everyone else get this and stop the murder of innocent Americans my Muslim terrorists.

Format: Hardcover
Heresay writing and knee jerk opinion. Too many people were anxious to pen their "expertise" on the matter even though these publications proved to be premature and obsolete as additional discovery played in. The author's account is no longer relevant.
