O'Sullivan is a critically-acclaimed documentary film maker. His third feature, Killing Oswald, was licensed by Netflix worldwide outside of North America.
He is currently working on a new documentary, This Film is Restricted, which explores the history of spy films and spying. Two of the major players in the book, Richard Helms and E. Howard Hunt, feature in the documentary. He is planning cross-marketing opportunities, as well as audio-visual promotion for the book.
With the current political climate, a book about behind-the-scenes players in presidential scandals is very relevant.

"While we have fundamental disagreements about 'Watergate' and the Deep State agenda that shaped it, O'Sullivan is to be congratulated on an impeccably researched work of investigative reporting that adds greatly to our understanding of the affair and its mysteries."
-Jim Hougan, author, Secret Agenda
"Dirty Tricks goes well beyond anything yet published, in revealing the mysterious links between the Watergate scandal and the CIA. Was the bungled burglary part of an internecine effort to topple President Nixon? Was the cover-up for fear of secrets being divulged, from a Washington call-girl ring to the Kennedy assassination? This meticulously-researched book draws upon never-before-seen documents in addressing such questions, in a spy-versus-spy story that fills in major gaps in our recent history."
-Dick Russell, author, The Man Who Knew Too Much
"Shane O'Sullivan's new book on Watergate, Dirty Tricks, draws on the millions of records that have become available since 2016, chiefly from the CIA. Anyone interested in comparing that crisis with the present needs to consult the fresh information and perspectives in this well-researched and timely book.
-Peter Dale Scott, author, The American Deep State: Big Money, Big Oil, and the Struggle for U.S. Democracy
"This brilliantly researched book will bring back fond memories to those of us who, as was said at the time, wallowed in Watergate. It provides a new generation with the opportunity to relive this intense experience."
-Alan Galbraith, attorney for the Democratic National Committee, 1972
