Murder on the Malta Express: new book documents Daphne’s assassination

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The 14th of October is expected to see the publication of a book on the assassination of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. Murder on the Malta Express: Who Killed Daphne Caruana Galizia? is to lay out the evidence on the dirty money merchants exposed by the journalist.

The book is written by La Republicca editor Carlo Bonini, Maltese journalist-blogger Manuel Delia and renowned British journalist John Sweeney. It will be published by Midsea Books.

The title borrows from Agatha Christie’s book, Murder on the Orient Express. According the press release, there are similarities in the plots with one difference: “the extraordinary stories the authors tell are true.”

The press release detailed that the authors ask questions of Malta’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat, major political figures, police chiefs, entrepreneurs and others. References to dodgy characters from Azerbaijan to Iran to Saint Kitts and Nevis are made.

The book was completed with the support of the Investigative Journalism Fund of the Justice for Journalists Foundation.
