Martin Dillon (born 1949) is an author and journalist from Belfast, Northern Ireland. He worked for eighteen years at the BBC and has written plays and novels, but is best known for his non-fiction books about " the Troubles".
He gained particular acclaim for his book on the
Shankill Butchers, although this and other works on terrorism led to him receiving death threats from a number of terrorist groups, which resulted in his emigration to France, and later to the United States. He has written books about the loyalist paramilitary Michael Stone and Special Air Service founder Paddy Mayne.
