'The Great Cover-up: The Truth About the death of Michael Collins' offers a comprehensive and compelling examination of the death of Michael Collins on 22 August 1922 at Bealnablath in County Cork, primarily in the light of contemporary documents rather than reminiscences of survivors. Gerard Murphy, takes a scientific approach to answering questions as to why Michael Collins died the way he did, in that particular set of circumstances, at that particular time. He concludes that the accepted model on the death of Collins, though plausible, is likely to be incorrect and that Collins was assassinated rather than was the victim of an accident. Appendices include reports and accounts of the ambush, and peace negotiations prior to Bealnablath.
