Description

Ruthless godfather John Gilligan controlled a colossal drug empire and a mob of Dublin gangland's most dangerous criminals. Violence and the threat of murder kept terrified witnesses silent and other gangsters in fear. Gilligan thought himself untouchable and above the law--until his gang crossed the line by killing Irish journalist Veronica Guerin in cold blood. Evil Empire tells the chilling inside story of Gilligan's rise to power, his savage gang, and the truth about the horrifying murder that shocked the world. Also told is the behind-the-scenes drama of the dedicated police squad who waged an unprecedented four-year war to smash "Factory" John's Evil Empire.show more
