The Serpent's Tail


Product Description
Product Details


"Dillon is recommended reading for anyone wishing to understand the complexities of British-Irish politics. He stands alone as one of the most creative writers of our time."
Irish Times "Martin Dillon's exhaustive work covers the whole panoply of dirty tricks and conspiracies, black propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agents and double agents ."
Financial Times"This excellent book demands the attention of anyone concerned about civil liberties in the United Kingdom ...a catalogue of cynicism, lies, harassment, torture and murder that makes the Cold War duplicity a la Deighton and Le Carre seem positively endearing."
The Guardian"Dillon's books are a working lifetime's brave and persistent effort to get information of a kind which, as he frankly says, can be perilous to possess, let alone to reveal."
Times Literary Supplement"Martin Dillon is the greatest living authority on Irish terrorism. He is our Virgil to that inferno in all the varieties of its torment."
The late historian & author, Dr. Conor Cruise O'Brien"A couple of Catholic Belfastian teens, Stephen Kirkpatrick and Michael McDonnell, are caught between England's MI5, the SAS and the IRA as they seek a safe way into adulthood in 1970s' Ireland. This is an excellent read, fast and peopled with folks you recognize instantly. I recommend it highly."
Bonnye Reed Fry - Reviewer"A classic of our times."
