Say Nothing: Story of Murder & Memory Northern Ireland

Say Nothing: Story of Murder & Memory Northern Ireland

Description:

One night in December 1972, Jean McConville, a mother of ten, was abducted from her home in Belfast and never seen alive again. Her disappearance would haunt her orphaned children, the perpetrators of the brutal crime and a whole society in Northern Ireland for decades. With gripping, forensic reportage and lyrical, vivid detail, Say Nothing weaves the stories of Jean McConville and her family with those of Dolours Price, the first woman to join the IRA as a front-line soldier, who bombed the Old Bailey when barely out of her teens; Gerry Adams, who helped bring an end to the fighting but denied his IRA past; Brendan Hughes, a fearsome IRA commander who turned on Adams after the peace process and broke the IRA’s code of silence; and other indelible figures. Keefe captures the intrigue, the drama and the profound human cost of the Troubles.
