Book Description

First published in 1999. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.


"Long regarded as one of Northern Ireland's best-informed journalists, many of Mr. Dillon's books have until recently been unavailable to American audiences. Now, thanks to Routledge, they are receiving the audience they deserve." -- The Washington Times
"An amazingly detailed and profoundly disturbing examination of the 'dirty' covert war between Northern Ireland's paramilitary groups and British security forces..Dillon's book is investigative journalism at its relevant best. He's put himself in harm's way to get at the dark truth, gaining access to both British intelligence sources and the IRA." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Makes Cold War duplicity a la Deighton and Le Carr seem positively endearing... This excellent book demands the attention of anyone concerned about civil liberties in the United Kingdom." -- The Guardian
"Grippingly written with the pace of a thriller." -- Financial Times
