In this remarkable book – the first of its kind – journalist Jason O'Toole distils hours of sensational face-to-face, no-holds-barred interviews with the feared criminal John Gilligan into a fast-paced and jaw-dropping account of the Irish gangland scene.
Starting out as a petty thief in Dublin, Gilligan rapidly rose to the status of crime lord, mixing with serious criminals such as Martin ‘The General' Cahill, Christy ‘The Dapper Don' Kinahan, Patrick ‘Dutchy' Holland and John ‘The Coach' Traynor. He was deeply involved with money laundering, miraculously survived an assassination attempt, and it is said he has millions stashed away at a secret location. O'Toole demands answers to all the hard questions; some of Gilligan's responses will make readers shiver.
Gilligan knew that laying all his cards on the table could mean signing his own death warrant. But he has done it here. And with a cast of all the country's deadliest underworld figures, this exposé is nothing short of explosive.
