The Irish are often thought of as a nation of missionaries, explorers, freedom fighters, artists and writers. But for every Tom Crean or Bernardo O’Higgins, there is a Captain William Cotter or Antoine Walsh causing mayhem around the world. This dramatic book explores the most obscure and unbelievable stories of the Irish who wreaked havoc from Rio de Janeiro to China ? from slaves and mercenaries to drug lords and killers.
