They seemed like a nice enough French couple, touring New Zealand in a campervan in 1985. But Auckland police suspected they were in fact experienced French agents Alain Mafart and Dominique Prieur, part of a dozen-strong team behind the bombing of the Greenpeace vessel Rainbow Warrior. This fascinating BWB Text presents in startling detail the careful interrogation of the couple by detectives, leading to their arrest and conviction.
