'. . . a well-written piece of investigative journalism that asks some deeply troubling questions . . .' - NY Journal of Books

'Cadwallader has written a brave, powerful and forensically detailed book about a shameful and denied aspect of our conflict’s history.' - The Irish Times.

'Anne Cadwallader’s remarkable book focusses on collusion in the British security forces (the RUC, the British Army, and the UDR) in the mid-Ulster “Murder Triangle”. Over 120 people were killed by a loyalist gang operating in mid-Ulster and Cadwallader has created a convincing argument that collusion with certain elements of the security forces was crucial in the committing of these crimes and the lack of proper investigation into many of these crimes' - The Dublin Reader

Farmers, shopkeepers, publicans and businessmen were slaughtered in a bloody decade of bombings and shootings in the counties of Tyrone and Armagh in the 1970s. Four families each lost three relatives; in other cases, children were left orphaned after both parents were murdered. For years, there were claims that loyalists were helped and guided by the RUC and Ulster Defence Regiment members. But, until now, there was no proof.

Drawing on 15 years of research, and using forensic and ballistic information never before published, this book includes official documents showing that the highest in the land knew of the collusion and names those whose fingers were on the trigger and who detonated the bombs. It draws on previously unpublished reports written by the PSNI's own Historical Enquiries Team. It also includes heartbreaking interviews with the bereaved families whose lives were shattered by this cold and calculated campaign.
