Overview

Scott Graham was a formidible SAS soldier. He was decorated for his heroism in Northern Ireland and the Falklands, and he fought gun battles in which more than a dozen IRA terrorists were killed.

Mairead Farrell was a petite, young, darkly beautiful . . . and she planted bombs for the IRA.

Together the two shared a deadly and terrible secret. For fourteen years, they loved one another with a relentless passion, against all the taboos of both their armies. Their clandestine love affair reached its crescendo with the shooting of three unarmed IRA terrorists on the Rock of Gibraltar, one of the most controversial incidents in the history of the SAS.

Violent Delights is Scott Graham's true story of this extraordinary romance, and of the killings that shocked the world.

Their love began in a Belfast bar when Mairead was an innocent Catholic schoolgirl and Scott a young, idealistic British soldier with dreams of one day joining the SAS. He lied about his occupation and soon they became lovers. Mairead would become a heroine and a legend among the Republicans of West Belfast. She joined the IRA, running messages, ferrying arms and finally playing a key role in bombing missions. Scott went on to become a "badged" member of the SAS.

Violent Delights is the amazing true story of the doomed love affair of two young people thrown together by accident in one of the world's most violent societies, two people representing the opposite sides of the war of attrition in Northern Ireland.

Their heartbreaking story captures the beauty and the tragedy of this cruel land.
