Overview

Edwin P. Wilson was the Great Gatsby of the spook world, the rogue CIA agent who had already begun to amass a fortune while still in U. S. intelligence. His lavish estate outside Washington, D. C. was a favored gathering place for senators and congressmen, admirals and generals, and for key intelligence officers. Both the CIA and the FBI were aware of Wilson's secret, illegal weapons-trafficking activities with Libya's Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi, but they had done nothing to stop him. To everyone who knew him, Edwin Wilson seemed above the law.

Then, U. S. attorney Larry Barcella discovered Wilson's sinister machinations, and in a chase that would go on for nearly four years and over three continents, Barcella began a manhunt that would not end until Wilson was brought to justice.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If the story of Edwin Wilson, the ex-CIA agent who came to serve Muammar el-Qaddafi as a freewheeling dealer in explosives and the technologies and tactics of terror, were laid before a reader as fiction, it would be rejected as too bizarre, too grotesque, too unbelievable. And yet the story of Wilson, and of his capture and conviction (featured recently on 60 Minutes ), is not only true but also provides food for thoughtas Maas's absorbing but somewhat blandly written account suggestsabout the subterranean role of America's national security agency. Yet, in light of the Watergate-CIA revelations, perhaps the Wilson story is not so strange after all. Fascinating reading for lovers of spy thrillers; recommended for public libraries.
