Meet the Wilsons – the deadliest family in crime

Brothers Eric, Keith and John Wilson, their cousin Alan, and nephew Luke shared a trade – assassination. Working for Ireland’s criminal gangs they brought bloodshed and chaos to the streets.

The Wilsons were not choosy about their targets. Hutches, Real IRA chiefs or random opponents from pub rows – they were all the same to them. Nor were they picky about motives – as long as the price was right, they asked no questions.

The Hitmen is the shocking story of how a family cornered the market in intimidation and vengeance. It details the terrible cost in human suffering, particularly the death of an innocent teenage girl, Mariaora Rostas, when she crossed their path. And it reveals how, one by one, each of the Wilsons finally met his Waterloo.

The Hitmen draws on exclusive access to wire taps, case files and interviews with sources close to the gang who have never spoken before. No 1 bestselling authors Stephen Breen and Owen Conlon have written an extraordinary account of a family business like no other.
