The true story of the horrific murder of five members of the family of John Joyce of Maamtrasna, then in Co. Galway, on the 18th of August 1882 - and the extraordinary aftermath. A story of tragedy, violence and victimisation, but also a story of great drama and striving for justice. It will long remain in memory.

'At the centre of this book is one of the most blatant miscarriages in Brittish legal history............It pre - echoes strangely in the final decades of the nineteenth century what has been happening in the final decades of our own' - Robert Kee
