Narrator Matthew Blaney carefully takes listeners through a history of "The Troubles" in Ireland to explain the complicated and tragic murder of Jean McConville. In this period of great turmoil, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) fought with guerrilla tactics to try to free Northern Ireland from British rule. During this time, a widow with 10 children was taken from her bed and disappeared. Blaney's gentle Irish accent helps listeners endure some of the more horrifying details of violence perpetrated by the IRA and helps direct the listener through a murder investigation that took decades to solve and that led detectives all the way to Boston. Blaney's sober voice is measured and careful, highlighting the subject matter even as he delivers a powerful performance. V.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
