In Who Bombed the Hilton?, award-winning filmmaker and historian Rachel Landers wrestles with the evidence — unadorned, uninterpreted, flying in from dozens of sources and every corner of the world — to unravel this complex cold case in forensic detail, exposing corruption, conspiracy theories ,political intrigue – and she believes, a prime suspect.
