Fenian Fear - Peter Murphy


When Irishman and alleged Fenian assassin, Henry James O'Farrell made an attempt on the life of Queen Victoria's second son, Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, at Clontarf, Sydney, March 12th 1868, it was to be the first act of terrorism on Australian soil; an act that would shake the very foundation of Australia's fledgling democracy. Was O'Farrell, a member of an Australian secret Fenian organisation, whose 'modus operandi' was to murder Prince Alfred and ransack the colony of New South Wales, or was O'Farrell the fall-guy for a larger conspiracy yet to unfold? You be the judge. Fenian Fear will keep you guessing right up to the last page.
