Maybe not the complete account, but a most informative one. John Cooley, an American correspondent steeped in the lore of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, tells the Qaddafi story with his usual combination of thoroughness and dramatic flair. He seems to enjoy himself most when unravelling the mysteries of the innumerable plots and counterplots involving Qaddafi, and penetrating the murky recesses of the Wilson-Terpil affair.
