Stakeknife: Britain's Secret Agents in Ireland by Martin Ingram, Greg Harkin

An explosive exposé of how British military intelligence really works-from the inside. This book presents the stories of two undercover agents: Brian Nelson, who worked for the Force Research Unit (FRU), aiding loyalist terrorists and murderers in their bloody work; and the man known as Stakeknife, deputy head of the IRA's infamous "Nutting Squad," the internal security force that tortured and killed suspected informers.

This book is copublished with O'Brien Press, Dublin and is for sale only in the United States, it's territories and dependencies, Canada, and the Philippines.

About the Author

    Greg Harkin, an award-winning Belfast journalist for the People newspaper, is the journalist who first broke the story on the Stakeknife affair. He was awarded the 2003 Scoop of the Year award for his work on the story.
    "Martin Ingram" is the pseudonym of an ex-British Army intelligence officer turned whistleblower.  He worked in army intelligence from 1981-84 and 1987-90, working for the FRU, a highly secretive unit, in Northern Ireland. He left the army after deciding that the truth would have to be told about the activities of intelligence agents in Ireland during the Troubles. Since deciding to become a whistleblower, he has written articles for many newspapers, including the Sunday Times, the Guardian, the Irish News, and Andersonstown News.
