They called it the manhunt of the 20th century, one which confounded the world for three decades. Countless theories have been advanced on the fate of Lord Lucan after he vanished following the brutal slaying of his children's nanny. At last, the jigsaw finally fits. Former detective Duncan MacLaughlin, one of Scotland Yard's elite, has cracked the audacious charade which enabled the Earl of Lucan to evade the long arm of the law. He was aided by friends in high places, the arrogant 'club within a club' that played the game by its own rules ('to hell with the common norms of civic behaviour') to ensure that 'Lucky' Lucan stayed free. MacLaughlin reveals where the aristocrat fled, disguised as Jungle Barry, the name of an uncanny Lucan lookalike he met on the run. Having been hit with a firestorm of propaganda and spurious disinformation from the heart of the Establishment when he revealed these astonishing facts, MacLaughlin launches a convincing counterstrike. Now judge for yourself.
