A provocative look at one of Canada's biggest tragedies
On March 16, 2005, almost twenty years after one of the biggest mass murders in Canadian Aviation history, the Air-India Case concluded with a verdict that authors Zuhair Kashmeri and Brian McAndrew predicted sixteen years ago when Soft Target was first published: not guilty.
In this second edition, the two offer a detailed foreword that brings readers up-to-date with some startling new information surrounding the twin bombings on June 23, 1985 in the air over the Atlantic, and on the ground in Japan, which left 331 people dead. They offer key details from the trial of Ripudaman Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri that took place in a specially-built Vancouver courtroom, leads that were not followed up, and more details of India's intelligence service's clandestine interference in Canada. They explain how their own prediction that justice would not be found because of a botched investigation came true, and that only a public inquiry will offer closure to the families of the victims.

Praise for the first edition:
"There is much documented and useful information in Soft Target, which often reads like a spy thriller. The authors weave Sikh politicians, RCMP officers, CSIS agents and Indian consuls into a fascinating story."

- Calgary Herald

Praise for the first edition:
"The book deals with a difficult subject and does so honestly and painstakingly. ... Its strength is that is presents the results of its investigations. Unless these are refuted, or some one comes up with a more credible explanation of these events, the book would remain as the most useful document on the subject."

- Ottawa Citizen
