The Troubles of Northern Ireland have been back in the news quite a bit recently, thanks to the ongoing debate and confusion surrounding what Brexit will actually look like.

It may seem like something from the past, but journalist Patrick Radden Keefe found that the wounds and fear are very much alive still as he researched his new book, Say Nothing: A True Story Of Murder And Memory In Northern Ireland.

The book uses the death of one woman — Jean McConville, a mother of ten abducted in 1972 and never heard from again — to illustrate the broader conflict.

Listen to Keefe preview some key points from his book in an interview with Mary Louise Kelly below, or read a transcript on NPR’s website.
