On September 19, 1989, 170 people were killed when French Airlines UTA Flight 772 was destroyed by a suitcase bomb while en route to Paris. Like the better-known Lockerbie tragedy that had taken place ten months earlier, it was carried out at the instruction of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi. As a lawyer, Stuart Newberger represented the families of the seven Americans killed in the attack. Now he brings all the pieces together to tell its story for the first time, revealing in riveting prose how French investigators cracked the case, taking us inside the courtroom to witness the litigation against the Libyan state that followed.
