What They Said:

“A cold case that will intrigue and excite.” – The Irish Mail on Sunday

“Every now and then a book comes along on a topic you have never heard of but turns out to be a riveting page-turner. This week I read a marvellous new work of Irish social and criminal history as Jack Kiernan investigates a forgotten miscarriage of justice. Just over a century ago, Mullingar man Joseph Heffernan was hanged for the murder of Mary Walker. Kiernan has meticulously gone through the police investigation, witness statements and the court case and has found major flaws in the investigation. By the end ... the reader is left in no doubt that beautiful young Mary Walker was the victim of a heinous crime, but that crime claimed another life the day Joe Heffernan fell to the hangman's rope.” – Joe Duffy, writer and broadcaster

Is It Me? would make a brilliant true crime movie. I love reading true crime stories and I thoroughly enjoyed Is It Me? You should approach the Cold Case film makers; this story would make a powerful television documentary. Well done Jack.” – Brush Shiels, legendary rock guitarist
