About the Book

Taking his cue from the true-life story of Special Forces Operative Captain Robert Nairac, Eoin McNamee has in The Ultras weaved a compelling fictional narrative through the backwaters of history. Set in the Ireland of the 1970s, it brings to life the dangerous shadowy margins of society in which Nairac immersed himself before his disappearance - the dangerous world of heretic plotters, outcasts, para-militarists and intelligence agencies alike.
