Sinopsis: A young Irish Leicester-raised catholic is sent north as a reporter in the Belfast bureau of RTE News to cover the conflict erupting on the streets of a hate-filled city as the IRA campaign began. This title offers an account of life on the streets of Belfast, as a young reporter witnesses the chaos of a divided society on the brink of civil war.
'Dark, witty, grim, caustic, despairing, wise, searingly honest and beautifully written... The best informed and most exciting personal account of the Troubles ever published.' -- James Delingpole, Mail on Sunday
'Livid and lucid... You almost feel you are walking those streets, taking hasty cover as a cannonade of machine gun fire barks fatally into the silence.'
-- Tom Adair, Scotsman
'The best book you will ever read about Belfast in the 1970s... Ghastly, hilarious, black with humour, black with death and cruelty, and lucid with humanity.' -- Mary Kenny, Literary Review
'Vibrant, righteously angry, often bleakly funny.' -- Andrew Mueller, The Times
