Softcover. The author chronicles some of the most high-profile crimes in Ireland's recent history and shows how the theory that the punishment should fit the crime is not always borne out in modern-day Ireland. He examines the truth behind the investigations and the reasons why justice has not been served. The brutal murder of Grace Livingstone, a 56yr old housewife, shocked the country. Grace's husband, Jimmy, soon became the prime suspect in her murder, yet he claims that someone tried to frame him. Una Lynskey was a 19yr old girl when she was killed as she walked home from work in Co. Meath. While the Gardaí sought to bring those responsible to justice, a terrible act of revenge was carried out. A young teenager, Philip Cairns, went missing in Dublin in 1986 and has not been seen since. Despite the many rumours surrounding his disappearance, the case remains unsolved. When cattle dealer Richie Barron was killed after an eventful night out in his hometown of Raphoe, Co. Donegal, rumours began to circulate that Gardaí were covering something up. The Gardaí investigation resulted in the establishment of a tribunal of inquiry, which has confirmed levels of corruption in Ireland's police force previously unimaginable. In June 1996, Veronica Guerin, a 36yr old mother and one of Ireland's leading investigative journalists, was brutally murdered by a ruthless gang of drug barons. Veronica's death resulted in an unprecedented police investigation and the smashing of Ireland's largest criminal gang. The book looks at trial transcripts, confessions and statements, some of which have not been in the public domain before now. The reader lives through the investigations, the evil acts perpetrated, the allegations and counter allegations, the lies and truths told, the corruption on many levels and ultimately how justice was lost in the melee. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. 209pp. trade size softcover. F. with no creasing to covers.
