Description
Taking his cue from the true-life story of Special Forces Operative Captain Robert Nairac, Eoin McNamee has in The Ultras weaved a compelling fictional narrative through the backwaters of history. Set in the Ireland of the 1970s, it brings to life the dangerous shadowy margins of society in which Nairac immersed himself before his disappearance - the dangerous world of heretic plotters, outcasts, para-militarists and intelligence agencies alike.

Author Bio:

Eoin McNamee's novels include Resurrection Man, later made into a film, The Blue Tango, which was longlisted for the Booker Prize, Orchid Blue, described by John Burnside in the Guardian as 'not only a political novel of the highest order but also that rare phenomenon, a genuinely tragic work of art,' and Blue is the Night which was awarded the 2015 Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award. He lives in Sligo.
In 1970s Ireland the British establishment conducted its struggle with the IRA in the 'dirty war'. This novel, set around the real-life figure of Captain Nairac, recreates the intrigue, loyalism and violence of a time when friend could turn foe overnight and nothing was ever quite as it seemed.
