Ten-thirty-three: The Inside Story of Britain's Secret Killing Machine in Northern Ireland
This explosive book reveals the conspiracy between British Military Intelligence and the gunman of the UDA who targeted and killed both Republican terrorists and ordinary Catholics.
The secret partnership was sanctioned at the highest level of the British government and full details of planned operations, including killings, were passed directly to its Joint Intelligence Committee in London.
Ten-Thirty-Three was the codename given to the agent who was fed with all the details necessary for Loyalist gunmen to carry out their murderous activities. But somewhere along the line the power went to Ten-Thirty-Three's head and he became increasingly unpredictable. It wasn't long before he was completely out of control, and his Military Intelligence bosses had the makings of a major catastrophe on their hands.
This extraordinary true story lifts the lid on shocking abuses of power in Belfast in the 1980s and 1990s.
