Hard Cases is a collection of startling stories about the reality
of crime and court cases in Ireland. In these stories, there are no
crime bosses with quaint nicknames; the police don't collect
convenient clues that tell them who dunnit. Instead, we get cases
both famous and obscure in which the outcome is sometimes just,
sometimes unsettling. It begins with 'Dessie O'Hare's Last Stand',
which records in breathtaking detail the inside story of a
notorious kidnapping. It ends with 'The Small Legend of Karl
Crawley', the story of a sometimes gentle, sometimes wild young
Dublin man who found a shocking way of fighting back against
authority. There's the story of how Peter Mathews went into a
police station to answer questions about a petty crime and ended up
dead, with gardai covering up the reason why. How did Fr Molloy
come to die in the bedroom of his married friends? What happened
when a man came home to find his daughter's boyfriend wielding a
hatchet? Then there are the stories of murder, incest, libel and
the legal warfare between rival Elvis fans.
