This is an auction for VERDICT ON EREBUS by Peter Mahon. review:

"FIVE STARS!!! This book by the late Peter Mahon details his investigations into the crash in Antarctica of Flight 901 on 28 November 1979, in which all 257 passengers and crew were killed. Mahon's work is a literary masterpiece. He was criticised and publicly ridiculed by many observers (especially Air New Zealand) in 1981 following his controversial report of the Royal Commission. There are few who will argue that Mahon failed to explore almost every avenue of this accident, but despite this he never received the recognition he deserved. His book is a legacy of his determination to uncover the truth of this appalling accident. It relates in a very compelling way the interviews, travel to key sites, courtroom proceedings and attitudes experienced during the course of the inquiry. Many observers will always believe it was a case of "pilot error", but Mahon saw it differently; his book provides conclusive evidence of the airline's administrative blunders, the weather (which played a crucial part, and on which the aircrew were not fully briefed), and many other aspects of an accident which should never have happened. When reading this book, one cannot fail to be impressed by the impartial manner in which Mahon tells the truth of New Zealand's worst disaster."
