Now in paperback, the acclaimed nonfiction thriller that takes us behind the scenes and reveals what really happened in 1989 when 20,000 American soldiers invaded Panama, arrested that nation's leader, and hauled him back to Miami to stand trial for violations of American law -- violations committed in that ruler's own country. Tracing the secret investigation, the exciting four-year manhunt, and the bizarre incidents that shook U.S. foreign policy to its roots, "Shooting the Moon" is at once a page-turning story and a first-rate work of investigative journalism.-- One of the most outrageous true crime stories ever recorded.-- A fast-paced narrative that holds strong appeal for readers of military and legal thrillers.
