Trick or Treason is the story behind the 1980s' darkest political mystery, whether the 1980 Reagan-Bush campaign secretly sabotaged President Carter's desperate negotiations to free 52 Americans held hostage in Iran. The book -- a narrative of Robert Parry's investigation for PBS Frontline -- takes the reader into a world where nothing is quite as it seems and political power is used ruthlessly to cover up the truth. With a new afterword by the author.

From the Author:

As an investigative reporter for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s, Robert Parry uncovered Oliver North's Nicaraguan contra aid network, the CIA's contra "assassination manual," the Oval Office role in covering up the Iran-contra scandal and other abuses of government power. For his work on the CIA and Central America, Parry won the George Polk Award for National Reporting in 1984.

About the Author:

Robert Parry has been in journalism for more than four decades. He broke many of the Iran-contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek and was a reporter for PBS Frontline. In 1995 he founded Consortiumnews.com as the internet's first investigative magazine, which he continues to edit today. Parry's accolades include the the 1984 George Polk Award for National Reporting and the 2015 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence by Harvard's Nieman Foundation.
