The saga of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103, December 21, 1988 has been dragged through the pages of intrigue since 270 innocent lives were snuffed out above the quaint village of Lockerbie, Scotland. Now, Trail of the Octopus peels back the cover-ups piled high in the halls of power. Banned in the USA since it was first published in the UK, it finally has seen the light of publication in the USA, not thanks to the alphabet soup suits at the CIA, DEA, FBI and the esoteric papa of them all, the Defense Intelligence Agency, DIA for short. Author Les Coleman was dumped in a federal prison, illegal held and shuffled from coast to coast in shackles and chains after blowing the whistle on the arrogant ignorance nurtured by government insiders. Malfeasance pulled the death switch, triggered by a US covert op that went terribly wrong and the feds getting in bed with narco-terrorist who easily placed a boom-box radio filled with plastique explosive on the doomed Pan Am jumbo jet. As the author said, " all governments lie, the US government lies more than most", is detailed in this "can't-put-it-down" read.
