This book was co-authored by journalist Bob Woffinden and James Plaskett, a chess grandmaster and quiz-show enthusiast.  I haven't read the book, but I read this article and his earlier essay.  I also watched the Celador documentaries about the case, and I am quite conflicted about what to think.  I lean toward believing in Ingram's innocence, but I'm not really convinced.  
 
A few years ago, when Fritz was hoping to get a chess gm interested in Arimaa, I thought of Plaskett.  Fritz contacted him, but apparently he wasn't interested.

This is getting renewed attention now.  At this point, I feel almost certain that they are innocent.

I think if they were honest they would retitle their game "who wants to be accused of cheating their way to be a millionaire?"
 
Two years is a long time to be accused of anything. It looks like once you've been a candidate to this fraud you have a sword of Damocles over your head... for life!!!
