Customer Review

on 9 October 2012
In my opinion, this seemed like a 'book of two halves'. It started off strongly, with a series of gasp-inducing stories about greed, cronyism, incompetence and political back-scratching. If it had stopped there, or better still, had it continued with its initial momentum, I would have rated it more highly. But I felt it lost its way half way through, and I found the second half little more than a listing of names and a recycling of old political stories. I spent a great deal of my life in Ireland, particularly during the period covered in the book, so had a reasonable knowledge of much of what is described. That said, some of it still managed to shock and outrage me! That's the positive side of the book - I just felt it ran out of steam after a good start.
