Lies of Silence

by Brian Moore

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

 

Lies of Silence

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 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.
