Peter Maas was the writer of THE VALACHI PAPERS, SERPICO, MARIE:A TRUE STORY, UNDERBOSS:SAMMY THE BULL GAVANO'S STORY OF LIFE IN THE MAFIA, KILLER SPY, and THE TERRIBLE HOURSFrom Library Journal:
If the story of Edwin Wilson, the ex-CIA agent who came to serve Muammar el-Qaddafi as a freewheeling dealer in explosives and the technologies and tactics of terror, were laid before a reader as fiction, it would be rejected as too bizarre, too grotesque, too unbelievable. And yet the story of Wilson, and of his capture and conviction (featured recently on 60 Minutes ), is not only true but also provides food for thoughtas Maas's absorbing but somewhat blandly written account suggestsabout the subterranean role of America's national security agency. Yet, in light of the Watergate-CIA revelations, perhaps the Wilson story is not so strange after all. Fascinating reading for lovers of spy thrillers; recommended for public libraries.
