Tales from the Fraud Squad

$20.00

Description

Perhaps best known for his heroics on the football field, Mayoman Willie 'Four-goals' McGee spent decades as an officer in An Garda Síochána, rising through the ranks to become Head of the Fraud Squad.

Tales from the Fraud Squad takes readers on a journey from Willie's childhood in Mayo to the streets of Dublin as a fresh-faced officer and his footballing days before introducing the colourful characters populating Ireland's underworld in the 1980s and '90s--the con artists and tricksters he encountered in the line of duty.

Packed full of stories of elaborate forgeries, insurance scams, and intriguing, inventive crimes, along with the meticulous attention to detail with which officers amassed evidence and brought the perpetrators to court, Willie tells his story with an open-hearted charm and warmth.
