I have given this book four stars as it is well written and narrated.
The point I am making is that Manny McDonnell was not the freedom fighter he would like us to believe, he was nothing more than a sectarian killer and criminal. The book is well written although the content is questionable, McDonnell would have us believe he operated in some professional terrorist cell who would abort an attack due to "civilians" being in the area, again more nonsense as anyone who has actually lived in Northern Ireland during the troubles can testify to, INLA & IPLO were made up from the dregs of PIRA and did not value innocents lives. The author does paint a pretty picture of terrorist life, with transfers between groups, although where he writes "transfer" everyone should read expelled from one group and joined another.
The book was good value at 99p and concentrates heavily on what McDonnell does best, criminality.
Arthur Thompson couldn't have had dealings with the UDA in 1968 or 1970- they hadn't formed yet.
How can you write a book set in troubles era Belfast and not check the correct spelling of the Shankill Road?
Who knows what other mistakes or lies are in this book? Disappointing.
