about

Johannah trained her sons to fight dirty. A knee to the groin, a thumb to an eye, all was fair as long as a Donnelly prevailed. "Hit first, talk later," she told her boys.
The gruesome saga of the Black Donnellys has been heavily mythologized. A thick layer of rumour, legend, and hearsay has built up around the facts of the case. But one thing is clear. No one who reads this fascinating crime biography will ever forget the murderous events that occurred near the town of Lucan, Ontario in the 1870s.
NATE HENDLEY is a Toronto-based freelance writer and reporter who specializes in writing on crime, politics, history, music, and substance abuse. His previous books profile bank robber Edwin Alonzo Boyd, American gangsters Dutch Schultz and Al Capone, and John Lennon and the drug methamphetamine.
