My New Book Cover Up

I think I might have mentioned that I have just written a non fiction book called Cover Up. It re-investigates five of the world’s biggest crimes: the death of Princess Diana, the death of Pope John Paul I, the probably murder of former US Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, The plane crash in Gander, Canada that killed 250 members of the 101st Airborne and the assassination of President Habyarimana which triggered the genocide that killed one million people.

As part of the promotion for my book, I was interviewed by Talk Radio Europe. Here’s a link to listen to the interview:

My New Book ‘Cover Up’

My book is due to be published and available for sale from the 1st of October 2014. Here is the press release that is being sent to 300 journalists in the UK tomorrow:

PRESS RELEASE

Investigative journalist puts five major world incidents from the 20th century under the microscope to reveal glaring errors in the police inquiries in this fascinating and forensically researched real-life exposé.

“The only debt we owe the dead is the truth”

 

What really happened in the Alma Tunnel that caused the tragic death of Diana Princess of Wales? And was the reign of Pope John Paul I brought to a sudden end by murder? Cover Up shines the spotlight on the police investi- gations and subsequent court cases of five of the most famous unsolved cases that rocked the twentieth century: Princess Diana’s fatal car accident, the suspicious deaths of Pope John Paul I and US politician Ron Brown, the loss of the 101st Airborne and the assassination of Rwandan President Habyarimana. Cover Up is journalist Damian Comerford ’s compelling quest for the truth after decades of confusion and unanswered questions.

Cover Up deconstructs and reinvestigates each event in minute detail, looking for missed opportunities, lost leads and new clues. Through his extensive analysis of police reports, forensic records and media archives, Comerford uncovers fresh and often shocking information. Continued speculation over the death of Princess Diana immediately roused Comerford’s interest in the investigation and he immediately uncovered troubling facts. Not only had the original French investigation, comprising a dossier of six thousand pages, disappeared without trace but the ‘chauffeur’ Henri Paul, whose job description had never included driving, had the equivalent of almost £245,000 sitting in fifteen different bank accounts, with £74,000 deposited in the last eight months before the fatal accident. Subsequent red flags revealed themselves, leading Comerford to examine the credibility of forensic evidence in this case. His conclusions will shock and surprise. His book challenges police methods as well as the justice system’s scrutiny of this and four other mysterious cases. Cover Up leaves no stone unturned, exposing many high profile figures Comerford believes may be responsible in covering up the truth.

Fearless and uncompromising, investigative journalist Damien Comerford hopes that his important new revela- tions will finally give a voice to the victims of these five unsolved events that shaped 20th century society and reignite the investigations in search of conclusive justice. Fans of political conspiracy and real-life crime will be riv- eted by Comerford’s articulate inquiries, which prove once again that fact is much stranger than fiction.

Penn Book Review

A PRB Starred Review

An articulate, principled work on five mysterious world crimes in an era of press handouts and news curation.  The authorities wish for whistle-blowers to become an extinct species, while the world has a responsibility to expose the heinous crimes committed by those in positions of power—let the whistle-blowing begin with Cover Up.

Overall winner at the Qantas Media Awards, investigative journalist Damien Comerford has released Cover Up, which sheds light on five select dark, mysterious, and most-compelling world crimes. All remain mysterious and unsolved, however, the author’s writing points to some interesting conclusions; and not in an average conspiracy theorist way. Secrets of the Alma Tunnel questions the death of Princess Diana and the rigidity of the investigations by French and British Police. A Poison Chalice magnifies evidence that was overlooked after the murder of Pope John Paul I, which possibly prevented the disclosure of Vatican involvement in the Mafia.   Crime on Capitol Hill suggests that political whistle-blowers have, in a sense, an unrealized death wish. Like many others, Ron Brown was about to blow the whistle on a shady political act before he was permanently silenced. Fallen Arrow asks a question so controversial that it takes the investigation of the 101st Airborne, the Screaming Eagles, in an entirely new direction. And finally, Preparing for the Apocalypse makes it clear that the terrible crime of President Habyarimana’s murder, which also led to one of the worst genocides in history, may have been the result of a European superpower.

Comerford’s work is highly provocative, intellectually rigorous, and filled with mysterious insights. Each story is given an in depth analysis and unbiased evidence with a compelling argument. His admirable quest to bring investigative journalism to life in an “era of press handouts and spin doctoring” is realized within the pages of Cover Up.

A political work you likely won’t find on the shelf of your local bookstore; an absolutely brilliant, must-read!
