Stone provides an interesting insight to the corruption, greed and incompetence of most of his UDA/UFF colleagues. He makes some compelling exposures; the Israeli supplied weapons to loyalists in N Ireland and a servicing RUC police officer transported Stone and his weaponry used in the cemetery murders. His getaway driver betrayed him. The sudden arrival of the unmarked white police van on the motorway, is not explained. He repeatedly appeals to the reader to accept the softer humanitarian components of his persona.
Stone exaggerates his technical knowledge, ability and bravado throughout the book. None-the-less his actions in Milltown cemetery took bravery considering his slim chance of survival. While he lambastes the RUC, he is careful never to disclose collusion and the source of his intelligence dossiers used to target and kill active republicans and innocent Catholics alike. He had other forms of official help that he does not want to disclose.
His assessment and description of fellow hit man Johnny Adair as an insecure, media hungry fool is interesting and entertaining.
The book ends with Stone's conversion from sectarian murderer to a pacifist artist. Who are we to judge the accuracy of this claim? By comparison Martin Dillon's book Stone Cold provides a more succinct portrayal of Michael Stone.

You have to wonder how much of this book is bravado and how much is truth, especially in the wake of Stone's 'performance art' piece at Stormont.Published 19 months ago by Trystan Lewis Swale
