'Voices from the Grave is an original and revealing contribution to recent Irish history, the result of an ambitious oral history project overseen by Boston College ... (The) accounts are skilfully stitched together and given context by Ed Moloney's expert commentary. The structure is a triumph for it allows the men to speak for themselves about what drove them to commit their vile deeds ... Moloney's startling book, and the dogged work of Boston College, offer Northern Ireland help in finding the way back.' --Stephen Robinson, Sunday Times
'This candid analysis of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, as seen through the eyes of two men of violence, is full of revelations.' --Christopher Silvester, Express
'(A) hugely insightful oral history of the Troubles. ... Ed Moloney is a sensitive, expert editorial presence, providing consistent, non-judgmental historical context, and this is a brave and important book.' --Claire Allfree, Metro
A sensational book that will drag the truth about the war in Northern Ireland further into the light than ever before.
