Synopsis of Almost the Perfect Murder
For over a year everyone assumed missing Dublin woman Elaine O’Hara had ended her own life. But after her remains were found gardaí discovered that Elaine was in thrall to a man who had spent years grooming her to let him kill her. That man was Graham Dwyer, a married father of three and partner in a Dublin architecture practice.

And it outlines the twists and turns – both in the courtroom and behind the scenes – during the dramatic trial that followed.
Almost the Perfect Murder contains startling new material based on extensive research conducted especially for the book. This includes fresh insights into the garda investigation and background information on Graham Dwyer.
This is the definitive account of the case that gripped the nation by Ireland’s leading crime journalist, Paul Williams.
