“Resolutely humane… Say Nothing [has an] exacting and terrifying lucidity… Meticulously reported… Keefe’s narrative is an architectural fear, expertly constructed out of complex and contentious material, arranged and balanced just so… An absorbing drama.”

-JENNIFER SZALAI, the New York Times

“Exceptional… Explores this brittle landscape [of Northern Ireland] to devastating effect… Fierce reporting… It is a dizzying panorama, yet Mr.Keefe presents it with clarity.”

-MICHAEL O’DONNELI, the Wall Street Journal

“Say Nothing investigates the mystery of a missing mother and reveals a still-raw violent past… The book often reads like a novel, but as anyone familiar with his work for The New Yorker can attest, Keefe is an obsessive reporter and researcher, a master of narrative nonfiction… An incredible story.” –Rolling Stone

“Haunting… As a cautionary tale, Say Nothing speaks volumes-about the zealotry of youth, the long-term consequences of violence and the politics of forgetting.”

-DEVLIN BARRETT, the Washington Post

“Say Nothing has lots of the qualities of good fiction… Keefe is a terrific storyteller… He brings his characters to real life. The book is cleverly structured. We follow people-victim, perpetrator, backs to victim-leave them, forget about them, and rejoin them decades later. It can be read as a detective story…  What Keefe captures best, though, is the tragedy, the damage and waste, and the idea of moral injury… Say Nothing is an excellent account of the Troubles.”

-RODDY DOYLE, the New York Times Book Review
