Lies of Silence

07 Jan

What is the difference between a normal every-day thriller and a literary thriller?

I don’t know, but Lies of Silence reads quickly and easily just like any thriller. However, there are points made which tend to stick with the reader.

I think we can be assured that Brian Moore did not give credence to either side of “The Troubles”.

Beyond that though, there’s a study here about doing “the right thing”; can the value of one person’s life be weighed against the value of many? And once you’ve resolved that in principle, what if that one person was someone else? Tricky!

Lies of Silence
reads like a thriller, but after nearly two weeks, I still remember it, so not my normal every-day thriller.

    And now, after two months, I still remember it.

    Moore evidence it’s a good ‘un.
