A chilling exposé of Ireland's brutal underworld since 2000
In this powerful investigation Ireland's top crime journalist Paul Williams reveals the stories behind the gangland warfare that erupted, with devastating results, at the start of the 21st Century. Crime Wars exposes the godfathers and the international drug deals, murders and mayhem that all dramatically escalated after the year 2000.
Williams uncovers the secret worlds of brutal godfathers Martin 'Marlo' Hyland and paedophile drug trafficker Christy Griffin. He reveals the chilling inside stories of the cursed Finglas murder gang and the blood-soaked McCarthy/Dundons in Limerick. He explains the background of one of the worst atrocities of recent years, the horrific Grand Canal double murder, and he tells the story of Joey the Lip, a desperate young man who became a vital witness in a gruesome execution case. Williams also follows the trail of The Syndicate, a huge international drug trafficking conspiracy organised by Irish criminals, which led to one of Europe s biggest drug seizures.
Crime Wars is a compelling and terrifying account of organised crime in modern Ireland.
