Product Overview

This is an investigation into the incredible and shocking story of the assassination of the eminent Human Rights lawyer Rosemary Nelson, who was assassinated by a car bomb by Loyalist Paramilitaries in Northern Ireland on March 15th, 1999. In the last ten years, there have been several government inquiries into her murder, and the latest full-scale inquiry has been ongoing since 2005, under the aegis of Colin Port, the Deputy Chief Constable of Norfolk Police. It has also been alleged that there may have been some security service collusion in her murder. Rosemary Nelson had been having an affair with an IRA member and was passing information from the Northern Ireland and British Government onto her lover. This became known in Loyalist circles and she received death threats from the LVF, who it is said ordered her assassination. This is a complex and terrifying story that has never before been told.

From the Publisher
Editors Note In March 1999, just months after the signing of the Good Friday Agreement, human rights lawyer Rosemary Nelson was assassinated when a bomb exploded under her car. The attack was claimed by a Loyalist paramilitary group but, over the last 10 years, there have been several government inquiries into Nelson’s murder. The latest one, which has been ongoing since 2005, has heard dramatic allegations that there may have been some security service collusion in the killing. Rosemary Nelson came to prominence for representing high-profile Republican and nationalist clients. It was no secret that her life was at risk and she had received many death threats—but had always been refused police protection. She had even claimed publicly that her life was being threatened by members of the RUC—allegations which have always been denied by the police. This fascinating and in-depth book takes an unflinching yet impartial look at this controversial case. As well as investigating the events leading to Rosemary Nelson’s murder, author Neil Root examines the striking similarities between her death and the assassination of solicitor Pat Finucane in 1989. This is a complex and terrifying story which deserves to be told.
