Summary
Dublin, 1841. On a cold December morning, a small boy is enticed away from his mother and his throat savagely cut. This could be just one more small, sad death in a city riven by poverty, inequality and political unrest, but this killing causes a public outcry. For it appears the culprit -- a feckless student named John Delahunt -- is also an informant and in the pay of the authorities at Dublin Castle. And strangely, this young man seems neither to regret what he did nor fear his punishment. Indeed, as he awaits the hangman in his cell in Kilmainham Gaol, John Delahunt decides to tell his story in this, his final, deeply unsettling statement..
Summary
When the brutal murder of a young boy raises a public outcry in 1841 Dublin, the killer, a feckless student with ties to Dublin Castle, recounts his dark underworld story while waiting for his execution
