-- French and British investigator's need look no further than read Jack Johnson's thriller Swiss Trap for answers to the recent massacre of the British al-Hilli family in the Swiss Alps. In an extraordinary coincidence, Johnson's novel (published on Amazon only a few months before the massacre) includes an eerily accurate account of the al-Hilli slaying. In the novel, Police discover the bodies of several people shot in a car on a quiet road on the Swiss border. Passports found reveal that the victims are of Iranian descent and the gunshot wounds bear the hallmark characteristics of a contract killing. Worried about the possible implications to tourism the police try to hush up the incident until it becomes clear that powerful forces are at play.
"It's uncanny how similar the stories are", says Johnson. "The reaction of the authorities has been totally predictable. The first thing they do is squash is any idea that the Alps are unsafe for tourists. Next, if the killing is connected to organisations in the Middle East, this information will be kept under wraps and dealt with quietly in the background to prevent an international scandal."
