The convictions of John Delahunt

Hughes, Andrew, 1979-2014
Books
On a cold December morning in 1841, a small boy is enticed away from his mother and his throat savagely cut. But when Dublin learns why John Delahunt committed his vile crime, the outcry against him leaves no room for compassion. Though his fate is sealed, this feckless Trinity College student - who became a secret informer for Dublin Castle - seems neither to regret what he did nor fear his punishment. Based on true events that convulsed Victorian Dublin and still seem shocking to us today and shot through with dark humour, 'The Convictions of John Delahunt' is a gripping, chilling portrait of one man's duplicity.
