I've owned this book in the paperback version for years. The main subject is of course , greed and murder. I've got a tiny claim to fame with this story, hence my rating... I've been to the pub, many moons ago on a family holiday to Wicklow (the beautiful Avoca) we had a lovely meal in the establishment where a very sweet elderly lady told me all about the grizzly tale. Seeing how fascinated I was she had her grandson bring a copy of the book for me to keep!

There's not much I can say about this
I was a bit disappointed with this book, but I picked it up in the sale rail so I cannot complain!
