Listen to this episode



The extraordinary story of a family of Dublin hitmen who killed 12 people has been told in a new book.

Stephen Breen and Owen Conlon of The Irish Sun are the authors of The Hitmen: The Shocking True Story of a Family of Killers for Hire.

It tells the story of five members of the Wilson family – brothers John, Eric and Keith, their nephew Luke and cousin Alan – and how they became the country's first family of contract assassins.

The book draws on exclusive access to wiretaps, case files and interviews with sources close to the family.

Stephen and Owen joined us on The Last Word to talk about the book.
