Lies Of Silence by Brian Moore

When Michael Dillon is ordered by the IRA to park his car in the carpark of a Belfast hotel, he is faced with a moral choice which leaves him with absolutely nowhere to turn. He knows that he is planting a bomb that would kill and maim dozens of people. But he also knows that if he doesn't, his wife will be killed.

Reviews

An armchair time bomb * Mail on Sunday * This is a novel to mirror the disintegration of our times, the unstated irony of which is that a politics so provincial can breed a writer and an art so universal * Observer * A gripping read which you will find impossible to put down * Literary Review * Very much the thinking person's thriller - utterly tense and riveting, but also posing an acute moral dilemma for an ordinary person caught up in the troubled politics of Northern Ireland * Daily Express * It insists on being read at a sitting, for it is imperative to know what happens next * Financial Times *
