Hard Cases opens with a brilliant retelling of the Border Fox, in which Dessie O'Hare and his associates kidnapped and mutilated Dublin dentist John O'Grady. It continues with stories as diverse as the horrifying Kilkenny incest case; the Shercock scandal in which Peter Matthews died in Garda custody and for which no one was ever convicted; the Father Molloy case in County Offaly; the Greencore affair; and the hilarious goings-on between rival Elvis Presley fan clubs. Finally, Gene Kerrigan looks at the life and criminal times of Karl Crawley, a violent, drug-addicted habitual criminal who has been in and out of Mountjoy so many times that they have a special cell for him. Written in Gene Kerrigan's addictive style, once you've started reading, you won't be able to stop.
