The Professor of Truth

James Robertson 

Hamish Hamilton/Penguin

In The Professor of Truth James Robertson has taken several risks: going back over ground which many people will find painful;  writing about a case which many regard as still unproven at best; trying to imagine himself into the minds of those connected with the Lockerbie disaster.  To say he has this done well would be an understatement. The book is a product of imagination, but it runs parallel enough to the facts to ensure that it is a riveting read. And an often disturbing one.
