Reviews

  • "Pacey and direct and energetic, and it might also wake up the political sensibilities we're always bemoaning twenty-first century adolescents have forgotten all about. Recommended"

    Jill Murphy, The BookBag
  • "A sinister, shadowy world of conspiracy theorists, political double-dealing and media distortion. McGann, in his most accomplished young adult novel to date, handles all of these (and more) with an excellent pace and occasional flashes of ironic humour. The result is an impressive and highly intelligent political thriller"

    Robert Dunbar, Irish Times
  • "From page one it fires off the starting line and races along at an exciting pace, while the unusual and complex plot will keep readers intrigued . . . A slick and well-paced thriller that older readers should engage with and enjoy"

    Donal Cumiskey, Inis
  • "Now and again you read a book that makes you sit back and seriously consider the world we live in. Strangled Silence, by Irish author Oisin McGann, is such a book . . . He is to be commended for this exciting, worldly read. I look forward to seeing what he does next"

    Sarah Webb, Irish Independent
  • "Oisin McGann gets the reader involved right from the start through his instantly recognisable urban settings and detailed, well-developed characters . . . A pacy, tension filled thriller, which keeps the reader guessing as to how the story will end and if all the characters will make it, right to the last page"
