A true story of madness and murder on the Mary Russell, a ship that sailed into Cork Harbour, in 1828, with seven murdered crewmen on board

In 1928 the ship the Mary Russell docked in Cork harbour after a journey from the West Indies. On board a macabre discovery awaited.

Seven crew members lay brutally murdered in the ship's saloon. Captain William Stewart, a devoted family man, whose wife had been awaiting his return to Cork, was arrested for their murder.

This book reconstructs the story of this bizarre tragedy, the voyage, the court case, as well as Stewart's internment in the Cork City Gaol and then in the Cork Lunatic Asylum.
