Extracts from REVIEWS of Ruth's latest non-fiction book:

Aftermath – the Omagh bomging and the families' pursuit of justice

"She is one of the most important contemporary writers on Ireland and this is compulsive reading... the entire work is an Irish masterpiece." 
Tribune

"This vital, powerful book tells a story of loss, resilience and terrorism… this book...recounts a remarkable story of victims’ resilience and vindication, and deserves to be very widely read."
Irish Times

"Aftermath is a forensic account of what happened leading up to and after Omagh, set against the historical background and the developing situation in the North. It's all covered in fascinating and moving detail -- the lives of the victims leading up to that terrible day, the botched warning calls, the mobile phones that caught the bombers, the political fallout, the grief of the families and their campaign that eventually did the impossible.
It combines Dudley Edwards's ability as a gifted historian with her skill as a journalist to produce a hugely important and authoritative book that reads as compulsively as a thriller."
