Killing Thatcher: The IRA, the Manhunt and the Long War on the Crown by Rory Carroll


Bookseller review by Harry:

“This is a propulsive and thrilling political history that reads as intensely and as grippingly as any good thriller/crime fiction does. As explosive as the bombs it chronicles, Carroll produces not just an account of the Brighton Hotel bombing that came closer than any imagine to killing Margaret Thatcher, but an account of class warfare, the Troubles, and the interwoven personal histories of those who saw themselves on the frontline of a war with Britain, and Imperialism for that matter, and those who sought to defend back. Totally captivating and will have you feeling every emotion as was felt by every party involved: from the IRA, to their families, to the Police, bomb defusal, politicians, prisoners. A grand achievement!”
