Softcover. From a time when the ultimate punishment in criminal cases in Ireland was the gallows, the editor recounts 10 spellbinding stories of rape, murder, love and betrayal from around the country. In all these stories the murder or rape shook the entire community, exposing fears, disloyalties, treachery and, often, an appetite for vengeance. The authors of these pieces have trawled through the archives to bring alive these crimes, the resulting courtcases and the final dispensation of justice. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfrd Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
