Through stunning photographs and personal vignettes, Looking for Lockerbie introduces to the world some of Lockerbie's most engaging personalities, events, and places: its last milk delivery man, its boy racers, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, and many of the castles, ancient stone sites, and Roman landmarks that make this borderland town historically significant. The book celebrates the connection between a "wee" Scottish town and an American university, forged from the grief and sorrow arising from a single horrific air disaster.

The destruction of Pan Am Flight 103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in December 1988 was the largest attack on Britain since World War Two. 259 passengers and 11 townsfolk of Lockerbie were murdered. Libyan Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted of the crime. He maintained his innocence until his death in 2012. Among the passengers was Flora, beloved daughter of Dr Jim Swire. Jim accepted American claims that Libya was responsible, but during the Lockerbie Trial he began to distrust key witnesses and supposed firm evidence. Since then it has been revealed that the USA paid millions of dollars to two central identification witnesses, and the only forensic evidence central to the prosecution has been discredited. The book takes us along Dr. Swire’s journey as his initial grief and loss becomes a campaign to uncover the truth behind not only a personal tragedy but one of the modern world’s most shocking events.

Geoff Leeming belongs to an elite group of helicopter pilots. He describes his flying experiences in under-powered, and by todays high-tech standards, basic choppers such as the single-engine Whirlwinds and its successor, the Wessex, whether in turbulent tropical conditions, windswept mountains or low level over raging seas. Much of Geoffs flying career was in Search and Rescue (SAR) calling for the highest flying skills and the coolest of nerves. It fell to the pilot to make life-and-death decisions for both their crews and those they were rescuing. In addition to many great SAR accounts, this book begins with accounts of action in Borneo in the 1960s and ends with Geoffs fascinating account of his flying involvement in the aftermath of the Pan Am Lockerbie disaster.The result is a medley of cockpit experiences par excellence.

On 21 December 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 from Frankfurt to Detroit was destroyed by a bomb, killing all 243 passengers and sixteen crew. Large sections of the aircraft, bodies and personal effects crashed onto residential areas of Lockerbie, Scotland, resulting in the deaths of a further eleven people on the ground. The psychological damage to traumatised residents would take many years to disappear; in some cases, it never did. Libyan Abdelbaset al-Megrahi is the only person to have been convicted of the crime – though few believe that he acted alone and some believe him innocent. Author Douglas Boyd presents evidence that it was Iran, not Libya, which was responsible for the attack. On 3 July 1988 (less than six months before the Lockerbie bombing), Iran Air flight 655 was in Iranian airspace on a Bandar Abbas-Dubai flight when it was shot down by missiles from the USS Vincennes sailing illegally into Iranian territorial waters. Government leader Ayatollah Khomeini decreed that blood should flow in revenge. However, this line of enquiry was quietly closed and Libya declared guilty because the White House wanted neighbouring Syria and Iran on-side for the build-up to the first Gulf War against Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. Lockerbie: The Truth at last reveals the facts about what happened on that awful night at Lockerbie.

On 21 December 1988, Pan Am flight 103 departed London Heathrow for New York. Shortly after take-off, a bomb detonated, killing all aboard and devastating the small Scottish town of Lockerbie below. Only one man has ever been convicted of the crime: Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, though few believe that he acted alone. In 2009, a request was made by Libya for al-Megrahi’s release from prison on compassionate grounds after he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The decision to grant or deny that request fell squarely and exclusively on the shoulders of one man: Kenny MacAskill, Scotland’s Justice Secretary from 2007 to 2014. Detailing the build-up to the atrocity and the carnage left in its wake, MacAskill narrates the international investigation that followed and the diplomatic intrigue that saw a Scottish court convened in the Netherlands. He describes the controversial release of al-Megrahi, explains the international dimensions involved and lays bare the commercial and security interests that ran in the background throughout the investigation and trial. Finally, he answers how and why it happened – and who was really responsible for the worst terrorist attack to have occurred on British soil before or since.

Beautiful, flame-haired, fiercely independent Prudence has two passions: Scotland and the heroics of Ligun Doone, scourge of the hated Redcoats. And she is shocked when her father takes one of those Redcoats–a wounded English soldier–into their home on the shores of Loch Ness. But soon Prudence begins to suspect this Englishman is more than he seems–she fears he is a spy, even as she begins to surrender her heart. What's more, she is suddenly embroiled in a daring plot to rescue rebel Scots and smuggle a cypher containing the location of Bonnie Prince Charlie's lost treasure. This is her adventure of a lifetime, with even greater treasures to be found on her Journey to Enchantment.

The bombing of Pan Am flight 103 in 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland, and the politics that surround this early anti-U.S. terrorist act provide a fascinating case study in international relations. The event severely impacted Libya's relationship with the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Nations. This work examines all facets of the Lockerbie tragedy including the police investigation and indictment of two Libyan citizens, the imposition of international sanctions against Libya, that country's response and the years of tension and conflict that followed, the role of political mediation (most notably by Prince Bandar bin Sultan and President Nelson Mandela), the trial in the Netherlands, Muammar Qaddafi and Libya's increasing maturity in dealing with complex international situations, and the flight 103 bombing's significance within the context of the events of September 11, 2001.

The Sherpa Snowalker is an action yarn for the ages. The story is about the detection, location, and capture of what may be the last mammal on earth that has eluded proof of its existence, the Yeti. A wealthy industrialist and his assistants assemble a team of experts that are challenged with this task. The story begins 300,000 years ago and quickly moves to present day. The characters are funny, dramatic and engaging, as they not only struggle to complete the mission, but to come to terms with a few other dilemmas they face. Does the Yeti exist? Can it be detected? Can the team provide proof and/or complete the capture? What types of obstacles must they overcome to achieve their prize?
