From the cover: “In the spring of 1988 Coleman was on a mission for the world’s most secretive and well-funded espionage organisation — the Defense Intelligence Agency. Order to spy on the DEA in Cyprus which, along with the CIA, was running a series of ‘controlled deliveries’ of Lebanese heroin through the airports of Frankfurt and London en route to America. Coleman discovered that the security of this ‘sting’ operation had been breached and warned the American embassy that disaster was waiting to happen. He was ignored. Seven months later, Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie. Among the dead was a DEA courier. This is a gripping investigation into the causes of the Lockerbie disaster and the subsequent manipulation of the evidence.”
