Product description

Review

An extraordinary book. This dignified, just and unbearable account of the dark heart of Sri Lanka needs to be read by everyone who upholds human rights. As a Sri Lankan myself, knowing what I do about the war, I was very moved by Harrison's beautiful clear prose, her straightforward retelling of the complex situation there, and her refusal to compromise the evidence. Every member of the UN Security Council should be sent a copy of this book - Roma Tearne, author, Mosquito
Very important, and very timely... makes the full horror of the last months of the war almost unbearably real - Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice
Harrison demonstrates journalism at its best - Helena Williams, Huffington Post
Harrison reclaims the human catastrophe from the statistics - Steve Crawshaw, Observer
Gripping and deeply disturbing - Ellen Otzen, Alert Net
A heart-breaking read... [This] reminds us of the need to remember this tortured corner of modern history - Emanuel Stoakes, Huffington Post
Powerful - James Crabtree, Financial Times
