One of the most shocking scandals in Northern Irish political history: originally a green-energy initiative, the Renewal Heat Incentive (RHI) or 'cash-for-ash' scheme saw Northern Ireland's government pay 1.60 for every 1 of fuel the public and commercial customers burned in their wood-pellet boilers, leading to widespread abuse and ultimately the collapse of the power-sharing administration at Stormont. Revealing the wild incompetence of the Northern Ireland civil service and the ineptitude and serious abuses of power by individuals at the head of the Democratic Unionist Party, now propping up Prime Minister Theresa May's government and a major factor in the Brexit negotiations, this scandal exposed not only some of Northern Ireland's most powerful figures but revealed problems that go to the very heart of how NI is governed.

What the critics say

"Superbly researched and explained with clarity and precision. Sam McBride's book should be required reading for those working in the public and private sectors far beyond Northern Ireland as a manual on how not to run major projects and how not to govern a society." - Mark Devenport, political journalist and broadcaster "One of the most important books on Northern Ireland politics since the Good Friday Agreement; and certainly the most important on the Assembly and the function - and dysfunction - of devolution. Disturbingly revelatory." - Alex Kane, columnist and commentator
