A new edition to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. With an introduction by Roy Foster. Born in the Dublin slums of 1901, his father a one-legged whorehouse bouncer and settler of scores, Henry Smart has to grow up fast. By the time he can walk he's out robbing and begging, often cold and always hungry, but a prince of the streets. By Easter Monday, 1916, he's fourteen years old and already six-foot-two, a soldier in the Irish Citizen Army. A year later he's ready to die for Ireland again, a rebel, a Fenian and a killer. With his father's wooden leg as his weapon, Henry becomes a Republican legend - one of Michael Collins' boys, a cop killer, an assassin on a stolen bike.

Having delved into the heads of many of the world's most notorious murderers and published his gripping findings in the bestselling Talking with Serial Killers, for his latest book, renowned crime expert Christopher Berry-Dee has gained the trust of more monsters across the world and entered their prison lairs to discuss in detail their horrific crimes. Looking at the unique reality of their criminal lives and documenting the extent of their brutishness and cruelty, this book delves deep into the dysfunctional minds of a dozen social outcasts. Christopher Berry-Dee has also spent hundreds of hours corresponding with those incarcerated for the rest of their days and those on death row awaiting execution. Every sentence, paragraph and page of their writing provides clues to the reasons behind their homicidal behaviour -- making this book a must-read for aficionados of the genre and anyone fascinated by the extremes of the human condition. As you too come face-to-face with the most evil people in the world, their crimes will undoubtedly sicken and terrify; their words, however, will fascinate as you are drawn in to a world of hate, corruption, obsession, lust, power, terror and ultimately, death. Beyond the headlines, once the courtroom drama has subsided and the prison gates locked behind them for good, Dead Men Talking allows you to get up close and personal with torturers, psychopaths and mass murders, to read the stories that are rarely heard and get the last word from some of the world's worst criminals.

"This book is an absolute MUST for every serious student of the Word of God and should be required reading for every prospective minister." -Rev. Dr. J. Ronald Schoolcraft, Advent Christian Church, Jacksonville, Florida Dead Men Talking is a clear and simple biblical guide for everyone who seeks to understand the real meaning of life and death. A pastor for more than thirty years, Thomas S. Warren II allows the Scriptures to speak for themselves. The most natural teachings of the Bible, he says, reveal a distinct difference between God's Word and popular traditions. Using the Bible as his guide in separating biblical truth from cultural consensus, and fact from fiction, Warren examines such contemplative questions as: Will there be a Second Coming? What is resurrection? What really happens when we die? What is eternal life? To help readers further explore these and other important questions, Warren has incorporated a study guide that lends hands-on practicality to the ideas and issues covered in his book. If you are ready to search for answers-even if it means questioning everything you've ever learned-then Dead Men Talking is the perfect companion on your journey to spiritual discovery.
