"The author has had exclusive access to a wealth of fresh sources, including an extraordinary collection of documents abandoned by the conspirators when they fled Rwanda and a full confession from the prime minister in the government that presided over the genocide. Written especially for the tenth anniversary year, Conspiracy to Murder is a shocking indictment of those who knew what was happening and chose not to intervene. It makes the case for an urgent, enquiry into the scandalous behaviour of both the US and the UK in a crime that could and should have been prevented."--BOOK JACKET.
