About the Author

PAT FLYNN was the Superintendent of Gorey Garda District, County Wexford, which brought Arklow, Jack White's Pub and Catherine Nevin under his supervision. Although he led several murder investigations in his career, none had the notoriety of the Nevin case. He has since retired, and continues to live in Wexford.
