Aftermath by Ruth Dudley Edwards named Sunday Times 'CURRENT AFFAIRS BOOK OF THE YEAR'

The Omagh bomb, detonated 11 years ago, was the worst atrocity in Ulster’s modern history. Dudley Edwards has pieced together the conspiracy carried out by the Real IRA, the so-called “dissident Republicans”, as opposed to the good terrorists who now draw full salaries and parliamentary allowances. Aftermath is a portrait of and a tribute to the families of the victims who decided to mount an unprecedented challenge to the bombers by taking them on in the civil courts. It is also a gripping legal drama, featuring Jason McCue, the glamorous Notting Hill lawyer who, propelled by a mixture of vanity and dogged idealism, took on the case and won. It is an extraordinary story, and events of the past few weeks suggest that the “bad” terrorists do not by any means believe it is over yet (Viking £17.99).
