"Much has been written about Michael Collins's intelligence genius, but this is the first attempt by an intelligence professional to detail and to critically appraise Britain's attempts at response to it. A picture of official disorganization, interagency rivalry, and amateurism emerges, redeemed at times by acts of personal bravery and initiative.

Conor Brady, former editor of the "Irish Times" and historian of policing in Ireland--Conor Brady"
