More from Disappeared

My voyages in Side Project City continue. In the meantime, here are a few more selections from Anthony Quinn's Disappeared:
"Since the ceasefire, many paramilitaries had gone to ground along the lough shore — entire families of them, in fact. Some of them forged new careers in politics, others took to alcohol, and a few found God."
"So our prime suspects are a group of paramilitaries with macabre imaginations and an interest in duck hunting."
"It was wariness and silence that distinguished Republican estates after the cease-fire. Not petrol bombs or riots, but silence."
"His mind was like a house that had been repeatedly burgled by a memory thief."
And that's not to mention some incendiary speeches at the wake of a man who had been a good Republican to some people and something quite different to others.
