About This Book

“A concise and gripping history of the Troubles, revealing the people behind the pain and violence” from the award-winning investigative journalist ( Vice ).

On the morning of Saturday 22nd April 1978, members of an Active Service Unit of the IRA hijacked a car and crossed the countryside to the town of Lisburn. Within an hour, they had killed an off-duty policeman in front of his young son.

In Anatomy of a Killing, award-winning journalist Ian Cobain documents the hours leading up to the killing, and the months and years of violence, attrition and rebellion surrounding it. Drawing on interviews with those most closely involved, as well as court files, police notes, military intelligence reports, IRA strategy papers, memoirs and government records, this is a unique perspective on the Troubles, and a revelatory work of investigative journalism.

“As gripping as a thriller, except that this isn’t fiction but cold, spine-tingling reality.” — Daily Mail  

“A remarkable piece of forensic journalism.” —Ed Moloney, author of Voices from the Grave
