By S M Sigerson

Biography & memoir, Crime & mystery, Action & adventure, General non-fiction, True crime, Young adult | Paperback, eBook


This in-depth study offers a startling new perspective on one of history's most notorious unsolved mysteries: the fatal shooting in 1922, of the Commander-in-Chief of newly-independent Ireland. Its controversial new reconstruction of the ambush may be shocking to some: yet demonstrably fits the known facts and eyewitness accounts. This is the first book on this famous "cold case" in decades; carrying on where John Feehan's landmark edition of 1991 left off. It presents the most complete overview of the evidence ever published; as well as an itemized catalogue of the various witnesses' mutual contradictions and corroborations. Best Reads of the Year - Rabid Readers Reviews says: "It’s like a Dateline mystery!...As a history and mystery buff I couldn’t help but keep reading."
