Hours later, he would be found dead in an African jungle with an Ace of Spades tucked in his collar.

Hammarskj ld had been head of the United Nations for nine years. He was legendary for his dedication to peace on earth. But dark forces circled him: a powerful and connected group of people from an array of nations and organizations -- including the CIA, the KGB, underground militant groups, business tycoons, and others -- were determined to see Hammarskj ld fail.

A riveting work of investigative journalism based on never-before-seen evidence, recently revealed first-hand accounts, and groundbreaking new interviews, THE GOLDEN THREAD reveals the truth behind one of the great murder mysteries of the Cold War.
