‘Gripping…The Forgotten Flight is both a thriller and a detective story, but – more importantly – it shows how the rule of law can be used to make terrorists financially accountable for crimes against innocents.’
– Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and author of the New York Times bestseller The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames
‘In the war against terrorism, lawyers can make a difference. Author Stuart Newberger demonstrates what one committed lawyer can accomplish. A must read for all those interested in how the rule of law can be an important weapon in the ongoing struggle.’
– Kenneth Feinberg, former Special Master of the Federal September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
‘Newberger deftly breaks down the diplomatic flourishes and political motivations of the four countries involved in a complex web of determining culpability for state-sponsored terrorism. This is an engrossing and approachable narrative that skillfully distills the intricacies of this niche of international law and sensitively conveys the sorrows of the loved ones seeking a measure of justice.’
– Publishers Weekly
‘[A] delineation of a complex, important court case against Libyan terrorism that required years to extract accountability and compensation for the victims.’
