'Heney tracks these key players' movements like pieces on a chess board, constantly asking the fundamental questions of who knew what and when ... Heney's detective skills deserve great respect and he has written an undeniably important book' Sunday Business Post. 'As a former journalist with RTE for over 40 years, Heney knows how to tell a story and keep an audience hooked ... It's written with the pace and drama of a political thriller, with characters that you just couldn't invent' Irish Independent. 'Michael Heney, a former RTE journalist who has spent the 50 years since the Arms Crisis considering it more deeply, has written a fascinating and thoroughly researched book about this episode and found new evidence' The Times. 'Michael Heney, a former RTE journalist who has spent the 50 years since the Arms Crisis considering it more deeply, has written a fascinating and thoroughly researched book about this episode and found new evidence' The Times. 'Heney's book is a reminder of how a version of the frictions that led to splits in Sinn Fein and the foundation of Fianna Fail in the 1920s surfaced again in the late 1960s and early 1970s' RTE. 'Packed with astonishing detail and absorbing observations, interpreted anew through study of the State Papers of 2001, [The Arms Crisis of 1970] will leave you gasping with interest as you turn the pages ... I cannot recommend this book highly enough' Mary O'Rourke, Sunday Independent. 'A brilliant, forensic investigation of the 1970 arms trial, with much new material' Vincent Browne. 'Finally, a path has been cleared through the dirty fog of the Arms Crisis. Michael Heney has provided us with an original and textured history of one of the most controversial and misunderstood episodes of modern Irish history. Driven by evidence and attention to detail, and with dynamism and doggedness, Heney strips away the lies, myths and speculation surrounding the events and personalities associated with the great Irish scandal of 1970 and uncovers the realities. His clarity and painstaking research have resulted in a ground-breaking book' Diarmaid Ferriter.
