Conspiracy to Murder is a gripping account of the Rwandan genocide, one of the most appalling events of the twentieth century. Linda Melvern’s damning indictment of almost all the key figures and institutions involved amounts to a catalogue of failures that only serves to sharpen the horror of a tragedy that could have been avoided.

This book is terrible. There are so many REAL books about the Rwandan genocide, trust a journalist to try to turn it into some 60 minutes rubbish. Go to hell for trivialising this appalling event for your own personal gain Linda Melvern
