“Exploding the Myth” uniquely covers John’s significant personal involvement in the investigation of four separate international high profile murders, the forensic evidence of the Lockerbie bomb and ‘crutch bomber’ (Detroit) and an insight into bomb disposal and counter terrorist search operations hitherto unpublished. With a background of Northern Ireland and other operations, it also details the training processes and explosive effects analysis that are vital in today’s terrorist threat. The removal of 50ft pipemines from 32 airfields in the South of England left over from the 2nd World War and sorting out the booby-trapped oil fires in the immediate aftermath of the First Gulf War proved challenging. Perhaps more of an examination was designing and implementing all the security for Her Majesty’s Crown Jewels in the Tower of London. The Falklands War, Middle East, South America, Kenya and extensive work with the United Nations additionally make up the story of John’s extraordinary career.
