Law in Northern Ireland is the essential textbook for all students of Northern Ireland's legal system. Changes to this new edition – some of them substantial – have been made to every section, taking full account of five years of developments. The book explores the evolution of law-making in Northern Ireland before going on to explain the relevant constitutional arrangements, how to identify and interpret applicable sources of law, and what are the fundamental rules and principles of public law, criminal law and private law, highlighting where appropriate what may be unusual about them. It contextualises the myriad of legal institutions operating in the jurisdiction, sets out how criminal and civil proceedings work in practice and provides useful information on how people become lawyers, what lawyers actually do once they become qualified and how the legal system is funded. The appendices set out some sample sources of law so that readers can familiarise themselves with what is involved in handling legal documents. The language throughout is accessible and there are Tables of Cases and Legislation, as well as a comprehensive index.

In The Trigger Men, bestselling author Martin Dillon delves into the dark and sinister world of Irish terrorism and counter-terrorism. Over three decades he has interviewed and investigated some of the most professional, dangerous and ruthless killers in Ireland. Now Dillon explores their personalities, motivations and bizarre crimes.Many of Ireland's assassins learned their trade in fields and on hillsides in remote parts of Ireland, while others were trained in the Middle East or with Basque separatist terrorists in Spain. Some were one-target-one-shot killers, like the sniper who terrorised the inhabitants of Washington State in the autumn of 2002, while others were bombers skilled in designing the most sophisticated explosive devices and booby traps. Another more powerful group of 'trigger men' were the influential figures in the shadows, who were experts in motivating the killers under their control. All of these men, whether they squeezed the trigger on a high-powered rifle, set the timer on a bomb or used their authority to send others out to commit horrific and unspeakable acts of cruelty, are featured in this book. The Trigger Men takes the reader inside the labyrinthine world of terrorist cells and highly classified counter-terrorism units of British Military Intelligence. The individual stories are described in gripping, unflinching detail and show how the terrorists carried out their ghastly work. Dillon also explores the ideology of the cult of the gunmen and the greed and hatred that motivated assassins in their killing sprees. There are penetrating insights into the mindset of the most infamous assassins: their social and historical conditioning, their callousness......

Not Waving But Drowning tells the harrowing true story of one man's childhood struggle against poverty and his subsequent drive to become a policeman in the Royal Ulster Constabulary. From his earliest days, Edmund Gregory possessed an awareness beyond his years. During the course of his parents' turbulent and doomed marriage, he soaked up the horror of seeing his mother and father tearing each other apart. After they separated, he experienced a lonely boyhood, starved of affection, while living in welfare homes, dingy Belfast bedsits, and a sordid care home for young boys. However, Gregory later found solace in his marriage to Agnes, and in a concerted effort to drag himself and his new family out of poverty, he joined the Royal Ulster Constabulary. After five trauma-filled years serving in Belfast's riot squads, Gregory transferred into the somewhat elitist VIP protection branch of the RUC, where he was involved in providing bodyguard protection to many high-threat members of Northern Ireland's establishment. While working within that unit, he was also involved in teams protecting several members of the Royal family and then US President Bill Clinton throughout the course of their visits to the Province. During his last four years in the force, Gregory was charged with protecting the Reverend Ian Paisley's deputy, Peter Robinson MP, an outspoken personality who was under constant and serious threat of assassination. After 21 years of service, however, Gregory was diagnosed as suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, which resulted in his medical retirement. Not Waving But Drowning is an emotionally charged journey through Gregory’s impoverished childhood and the dark underbelly of his later life as a policeman in Northern Ireland performing what was, according to Interpol, the most dangerous policing role in the world.

Belfast befindet sich im Ausnahmezustand. Detective Sergeant Sean Duffy ist neu in der Stadt, und gleich bei seinem ersten Fall – der Suche nach einem Serienkiller – muss er sich ins Zentrum des Terrors begeben. Sean Duffy ist wahrscheinlich der einzige katholische Bulle in ganz Nordirland, denn es ist 1981, und »katholisch sein« steht vor allem für eines: IRA. Die Paramilitärs haben der Polizei den Krieg erklärt, nehmen sie, wo es nur geht, unter Beschuss, jagen Polizeiautos in die Luft. Ihnen gilt Duffy als Verräter. Doch auch unter den Kollegen in Carrickfergus, einem Vorort von Belfast, wohin er nach seiner Beförderung gerade erst versetzt wurde, muss sich der junge Polizist sein Ansehen erkämpfen. Entlang der Frontlinien ermittelt Duffy in zwei Mordfällen, hinter denen ein Serienkiller zu stecken scheint. Eines der Opfer stand in Verbindung mit den höchsten IRA-Kreisen, wo Duffy auf eine Mauer des Schweigens trifft, da jeder, der den Mund aufmacht, mit dem Schlimmsten rechnen muss ...

Eine heiße Spur führt ihn in die USA, doch als sich in Nordirland die Lage zuspitzt, wird Duffy plötzlich das wahre Ausmaß des Falles klar ... Ein Torso in einem Koffer, ein tätowierter Hautfetzen und eine teuflisch schöne Witwe – Detective Sergeant Sean Duffy ist zurück mit einem Fall, der ihn tief in die Wirren des Nordirlandkonflikts zieht.
