Paperback. An extraordinary account of the most famous IRA prisoner since Bobby Sands. Joseph Doherty, a convicted IRA gunman captured American popular opinion by his continuous frustration of Britain's attempts to extradite him. New York named a street corner after him; American public figures referred to him as a 'prisoner of conscience', not as a 'terrorist' as he was branded in Britain. In this study, the author traces the rise and rise of Joe Doherty, follows the legal events from inside the US Attorney's office and the courtrooms, and uncovers proof of how Margaret Thatcher's direct intervention ironically turned an IRA killer into a hero. With Conclusion, Appendix and Index. 271pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
