Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe

Here's a great non-fiction story of murder and how the crime was unraveled. There are eerily familiar societal parallels to the schism we have going on in the US today. I'm still thinking about it months after reading it.

"Say Nothing focuses on The Troubles in Northern Ireland, beginning with the 1972 abduction and murder of Jean McConville. Keefe
began researching and writing the book after reading the obituary for Dolours Price in 2013.[2]"

“Masked intruders dragged Jean McConville, a 38-year-old widow and mother of 10, from her Belfast home in 1972. In this
meticulously reported book—as finely paced as a novel—Keefe uses McConville’s murder as a prism to tell the history of the Troubles
in Northern Ireland. Interviewing people on both sides of the conflict, he transforms the tragic damage and waste of the era into a
searing, utterly gripping saga.” —New York Times Book Review

"Jean McConville’s abduction was one of the most notorious episodes of the vicious conflict known as The Troubles. Everyone in the
neighborhood knew the I.R.A. was responsible. But in a climate of fear and paranoia, no one would speak of it."
