Hardback. The author was the first to bring the plot to kill the Pope into the open. That was in September 1982, in an article she published in the 'Reader's Digest' which had international repercussions. Now, in a deeply personal, documented, and engrossing book, she brings the inide story, which she alone is qualified to tell, not only of the plot itself but of the plot against the plot. This is a far cry from the usual scissors-and-paste job, culled from items in newspapers, news magazines and TV "analyses,". Step by step she takes the reader behind the scenes in 4 countries - describing in detail her investigations and her interviews with informants in high and low places, bringing together seemingly random and disconnected bits of evidence, following a trail that leads inexorably to the attempt upon the life of Pope John Paul II and beyond that to the Bulgarian connection, and beyond that to the KGB. With Notes and Index. 264pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. in Nr. F. dw.
