The Shankill Butchers: The Real Story of Cold-Blooded Mass Murder

by

The Shankill Butchers: The Real Story of Cold-Blooded Mass Murder Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 horrifyingly 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 political and violent context from which it sprang.

Book News Annotation:

Reprint of the 1989 edition with a new afterword.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Not for the squeamish, "The Shankill Butchers" is a horrifyingly detailed account of Lenny Murphy and his reign of terror in Northern Ireland. 21 halftones.
