Paperback. On June 26, 1996 while crime reporter, Veronica Guerin was driving her red Opel Calibra, she stopped at a traffic light on the Naas Duel Carriageway near Newlands Cross a few miles outside Dublin, not knowing she was being followed by a motorbike. One of the 2 men sitting on the bike shot her 6 times with a .357 Magnum pistol killing her. Geurin's murder caused outrage. In 1995, the author had begun to collaborate with Geurin on a screenplay: the story of a woman journalist who takes on the crime bosses of the Dublin underworld. Here, with that story made into a major film, he recounts the unique story of his relationship with Veronica. He expresses his personal grief and rage and, with passion and eloquence, conveys his sense of her being one of the most extraordinary women of this century. Illus. 266pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F.
