"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 stomach-turning study of Northern Ireland's infamous Shankill Butchers, a Loyalist gang of murderers who preyed on Belfast's Catholic population." -- Kirkus

"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

"Dillon is recommended reading for anyone wishing to understand the complexities of British- Irish politics. He stands alone as one of the most creative writers of our time." -- Irish Times
