Award-winning New Yorker staff writer Patrick Radden Keefe shares a stunning, intricate narrative about a notorious killing in Northern Ireland and its devastating repercussions. In 1972, Jean McConville, a mother of 10, was dragged from her Belfast home by masked intruders. Her abduction was one of the most notorious episodes of the vicious conflict known as The Troubles. Keefe’s mesmerizing book on the bitter conflict in Northern Ireland and its aftermath uses the McConville case as a starting point for the tale of a society wracked by a violent guerrilla war.
