'This was the ultimate way to kill a man.'
During the 1970s a group of Protestant paramilitaries embarked on a spree of indiscriminate murder which left thirty Northern Irish Catholics dead. Their leader was Lenny Murphy, a fanatical Unionist whose Catholic-sounding surname led to his persecution as a child for which he took revenge on all Catholics.
Not for the squeamish, The Shankill Butchers is a horrifying detailed account of one of the most brutal series of murders in British legal history - a phenomenon whose real nature has been obscured by the troubled and violent context from which it sprang.

Did not know there was people like that but interesting
This is honestly the first real book I have properly read. (That sounds insane at 22 but i never had an interest). Once I heard about this book it appealed to me and once I started reading It i could not leave it down!
A truly gripping, well described story of the terrible times of the troubles in Northern Ireland!
I will definitely be buying another book of similar story line within approximately 30seconds of this review!
Interesting read, but......
The book is full of spelling mistakes which put me off somewhat
