Tom Connolly worked up to the highest ranks of the Garda S?och?na in a career that spanned four decades. Starting in a small rural town in 1955, he got to know all the characters, petty thieves and concerned citizens. He became a local dective, and was then promoted to the national detective division, becoming central to cases that made the headlines in Ireland in Ireland and abroad. In this memoir he gives a personal insight into the sometimes humourous, sometimes dangerous and at other times revealing, career of an Irish policeman.
Connolly's account lifts the lid on some of the investigations and prosecutions that have rocked the country: from bank roberies and assaults to the paramilitary murders that blights Ireland in the 1970s and 1980s via politically controversial cases.
An insight into the work of a passionate and complex life spent fighting crime.
