Review

'An excellent and well researched book ... an interesting and enjoyable read ... throws new light on the life and death of an Irish Black & Tan' - Royal Irish Constabulary Forum

'A well written and entertaining story ... an enjoyable read' - Irish Volunteers Commemorative Society

Book Description

It is 1921. In Ireland a war of bloody reprisals wages between republican volunteers and Royal Irish Constabulary. The RIC, their ranks augmented by Great War veterans - dubbed the Black & Tans - face daily ambushes and sieges. Outrages are perpetrated by both sides in this struggle for an independent Ireland. Meanwhile, in Dublin's Mountjoy Gaol, Constable William Mitchell awaits execution for the murder, in the sleepy Wicklow town of Dunlavin, of respected magistrate Mr Robert Dixon.

Who was Mitchell and did he in fact kill the magistrate? What political machinations make Mitchell's execution a foregone conclusion? Who is the sinister character whose life runs in parallel to Mitchell's and whose path briefly crosses his - with fatal consequences?

DJ Kelly's latest research-based novel reflects the true, yet hitherto untold, story of the only member of the British crown forces to be executed for murder during the Irish War of Independence.
