A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern IrelandBook - 2019
December 1972. Jean McConville, a mother of ten, was dragged from her Belfast home by masked intruders. Her children never saw her again. Her abduction was one of the most notorious episodes of the vicious conflict known as the Troubles. Everyone in the neighborhood knew the IRA was responsible, but no one would speak of it. In 2003, human bones was discovered on a beach-- McConville. Keefe uses the case as a starting point for the tale of a society wracked by a violent guerrilla war, a war that created a world of passion, betrayal, vengeance, and anguish-- and whose consequences have never been reckoned with. -- adapted from jacket
