"A devastating and yet beautiful read— I highly recommend 'Collusion with Injustice.'” Charles Asher, Phi Beta Kappa Reviews

Violence is nothing new in Northern Ireland. Author Philip Coogan’s story begins with his grandfather joining the British Army in 1877. It then spans the next 100 years of local history, family survival, and bloodshed, leading up to the 1970s.

The stunning memoir "Collusion with Injustice" details the moving true account of one family’s experiences with the Northern Ireland civil war of the 1970s. The author’s life changed forever in December 1971, when a bomb destroyed his thriving garage business in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland. Coogan’s troubles only intensified and he survived repeated assassination attempts. He was also prevented by planning authorities to rebuild his garage: “I received no compensation for my injuries or large building site. My health deteriorated and I suffered severe post-traumatic shock disorder and other illnesses.”

He emerged a broken man, and to this day wonders what his life could have been like.

About the Author: Philip Coogan now lives in Ireland - “I have never been able to hold a job from that night of 1971 when the bomb went off.”

“'Collusion with Injustice' gives audiences the human side of the (Irish) conflict, allowing non-Irish readers to more deeply empathize and understand the lives of those who suffered in this brutal epoch. The writing is evocative and intimate, and Mr. Coogan is a master storyteller, utilizing pacing and dramatic action to hook readers and, once drawn into the narrative, keep them emotionally invested in the horror and the tragedies that he himself has experienced. A devastating and yet beautiful read— I highly recommend Collusion with Injustice.” Charles Asher, Phi Beta Kappa Reviews
