Manifest Lies

The Unsolved Murder of the British Journalist David Holden
  • By Max Heaton
Product Description

December 1977 and the world is ready for the Mena House Peace Conference in Cairo between the Egyptians and the Israelis, the first step towards the Camp David Agreement and President Sadat's share of the 1978 Nobel Peace Prize.

Close to that ornate, historic venue, on a Cairo back road, lies the lifeless body of a well-known Sunday Times journalist.

This is the story of that unsolved true crime.

In his debut novel, Heaton provides all the real-life clues that an armchair sleuth could wish for in a plot that includes international politics and espionage - involving MI6, Kim Philby and other familiar Cold War names; a past and all-but-forgotten colonial conflict; Israel-Palestine; subterfuge; encryption; lies; and-to the excitement of the ambitious Cairo detective working alongside his London counterpart-Scotland Yard.

Was the murder political assassination, mistaken identity, or 'collateral damage'? Or something else?

This is a thriller based on years of research that is packed with fast-flying questions and solutions... as sex, money and politics feature in a three-pronged investigation. Set in a time where the identity politics of gender and sexual equality were gaining momentum, Heaton masterfully provides a conclusion that is as tantalisingly open-ended as it is satisfying, convincing and clearly evidenced.

Has this fascinating cold case finally been solved?
