Description

'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.

    This is honestly the first real book I have properly read. (That sounds insane at 22 but i never had an interest). Once I heard about this book it appealed to me and once I started reading It i could not leave it down! A truly gripping, well described story of the terrible times of the troubles in Northern Ireland! I will definitely be buying another book of similar story line within approximately 30seconds of this review! Many thanks! Aaron
