Captain Robert Nairac

Kevin Crilly has been charged with the abduction and murder of Captain Robert Nairac. Nairac's Wikipedia entry is here.

It was a particularly Gothic episode from the troubles in Ireland in the mid-70s that was the subject of Eoin MacNamee's novel The Ultras.

If you like David Peace's Red Riding novels, you'll like this one. 'Like' may not be the right word though....
