Product Description

About the Author

In 1994, Fulton was forced to flee Northern Ireland after one if his operations compromised his safety. He was abandoned by the security forces and now lives like a fugitive. He decided to fight back by doing what his military chiefs thought he would never be brave enough to do - go public with his story.

Brilliant book! I've read countless books about the troubles in Northern Ireland, informers and double agents and this is up there with the best of them! If you've bothered to get this far then you obviously already have an interest in this book, just click buy and enjoy

Format: Paperback
I find the whole genre of books relating to 'the troubles' in Northern Ireland fascinating and particularly enjoy those relating, like this one, to the 'dirty war' being waged by the security services and IRA alike. The foreword in the book is written by Martin Ingram, who is undoubtedly one of the the most respected writers on the subject, which certainly lends great credence to the authors version of accounts. A very good all round read, even if your not particularly interested in the subject matter. Definitely some similarities with Martin McGartland 'Fifty Dead Men Walking'......the most disturbing of which is the collusion of the various agencies of the British secret service to allow atrocities to take place and then condemn their previously prized agents and informers to almost certain death when they outlast their usefulness.

Into the Dark

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I served as a frontline detective in the Royal Ulster Constabulary CID for 30 years.One of my core duties was source handling.It is certainly not for the faint hearted. This area of Policing is fraught with many difficulties moral,legal and ethical. One has to walk a very finely balanced but nonetheless clearly defined line between source protection and strict compliance with Home Office Guidlines and the Criminal law.

I quickly discovered that many of our RUC superiors had little or no experience of the dynamics involved in running informants. Many others who exhibited a little knowledge had no interest because of their absolute fear of the potential trouble it would bring from our professionally jealous elements within our RUC Special Branch who saw the running of paramilitary sources as solely their domain.

Personally speaking I begged to differ. I found it to be a professionally rewarding duty. My CID colleagues and I often obtained vital information that flowed from our own well placed sources that was often instrumental in saving the lives of our threatened fellow citizens.In many cases our information came in from former SB agents who like Kevin had become somewhat disenchanted with their SB handlers. This was commonplace throughout my service in the RUC.

I have never met Kevin Fulton but having read his book I can readily identify with the treachery and the betrayal he alleges he has suffered at the hands of MI5 or the RUC Special Branch. He gave of his best. That fact rings true from every page. He stepped up to the plate and acted out his role as he saw it.

Format: Paperback
an outstanding book,gives an alternative view to the northern ireland troubles.People putting their lives and their families lives, on the line to help the security forces and then being thrown to the wolves,when they were no longer of use.would love to hear the security forces side of the coin,but i think thats unlikely.Read many military biographies covering service in northern ireland,fascinating to get an alternative viewpoint.Makes you realise just how much went on that we'll never know about,but then so much is left out of british news nowadays that you'll get more info on what's going on in the world from foreign news channels.

Format: Paperback
This has to be one of the most detailed books about the dirty war,a soldier is recruited to go undercover inside a terrorist organisation, the story unfolds very quickly and makes for some terrible revelations. In my view this has to be the best book I have read about the dirty war in Northern Ireland.
