9780099738107: The Shankill Butchers: A Case Study of Mass Murder

'This was the ultimate way to kill a man'

During the 1970s a group of Protestant paramilitaries embarked on a spree of indiscriminate murder which left thirty Northern Irish Catholics dead. Their leader was Lenny Murphy, a fanatical Unionist whose Catholic-sounding surname led to his persecution as a child for which he took revenge on all Catholics.

Not for the squeamish, The Shankill Butchers is a horrifying detailed account of one of the most brutal series of murders in British legal history - a phenomenon whose real nature has been obscured by the troubled and violent context from which it sprang.

Review:

"Gruesome yet compelling and superbly researched" ( Tribune)

"Gruesome territory...the great value of Martin Dillon's carefully researched and readable work is that it enters a world that few journalists have been inclined or able to penetrate" ( Listener)

"Mr. Dillon recounts in chilling detail the evolution of Murphy's gang and the efforts to catch them. It makes for gripping but altogether terrifying reading" ( Washington Times)

"A chilling book, chilling but fascinating ... People on both sides - or some of them - are likely to read Martin Dillon, and to learn from him" (Conor Cruise O'Brien)

"Dillon's books are a working lifetime's brave and persistent effort to get information of a kind which, as he frankly says, can be perilous to possess, let alone to reveal" (Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description:

The bestselling non-fiction book from the definitive writer on Ireland's tumultuous past. A gruesome investigation into one of Britain's most brutal and horrifying murder cases, perpetuated by the infamous serial killers Murphy's gang.
