Lies of Silence

Author(s): Brian Moore

Hardback fiction

Brian Moore, born in Ireland and now living in the United States, has received many awards for his exceptional novels, including the Canadian Governor General's Award for Fiction and honors from the U.S. Institute of Arts and Letters. Short listed for the Booker Prize, Lies of Silence paints a riveting and intimate portrait of Ireland's bloody political struggles. Michael Dillon is climbing the ladder of success. He is manager of a luxury hotel in Belfast; his wife is gorgeous; his girlfriend adores him. The IRA has a deadly plan, however, which will put Michael in an impossible position-caught between bombs and conflicting loyalties. Lies of Silence provides an intense, intelligent commentary on the moral dilemmas caused by revolutionary politics. And the superb narration, by one of our most accomplished British readers, whisks the listener toward an unexpected and unforgettable conclusion.
