On September 17, 1961, Dag Hammarskjöld boarded a Douglas DC6 propeller plane on the sweltering tarmac of the airport in Leopoldville, the capital of the Congo. Hours later, he would be found dead in an African jungle with an ace of spades playing card placed on his body. A legendary peacemaker, Hammarskjöld had been the head of the United Nations for nine years, but powerful forces were covertly working against him: the CIA, the KGB, underground militant groups, business tycoons, and others. Examining new evidence, recently revealed firsthand accounts, and interviews, Ravi Somaiya finally reveals the truth behind one of the great murder mysteries of the Cold War.
