In the early 1950’s, an Army
scientist, Dr Charles Wilson, plunges to his death from the 9th
floor of a Washington hotel - did he fall or was he pushed?The publication in 1975 of the Rockefeller
Commission report on illegal CIA activities raises the possibility of that his
death might not have been an accident.After so many years the family want to know what really happened.
agent Jack Gabriel, a friend of the Wilson family, is about to leave the
Agency, but is given one final task by the CIA director – to find out whatactually happened.As Jack’s investigation proceeds, he makes
discoveries that implicates agents now occupying powerful positions and the
more he discovers the more he is in danger.How is he to find and reveal the truth and protect himself and his
Cold War and years following are of interest to many readers.The author’s use of real incidents from his
family history and the development of the plot within that framework, gives an
authentic atmosphere to this story, which is not a fast-paced thriller, but a
tense and gripping telling of a cover-up intended to hide the truth of one
man’s death and of the concerted attempts to conceal that truth.
