In the summer of 1996 the Irish journalist Veronica Guerin was assassinated because of her investigations into organized crime. This title recreates the story behind her murder while chronicling the life of the man charged with her killing, John Gilligan. Using first-hand interviews with Gilligan, his thugs, friends, family, enemies, anti-drugs activists, members of paramilitary organizations and the police, the book exposes Gilligan's life and character, his meteoric rise in the Irish underworld, and his blatant disregard for law and order.
