by Simon Cox
BASED ON THE CELEBRATED BBC NEWS INVESTIGATION'gripping and bitingly cold... full of fine detail and outrage' - Sunday Times'Gripping' - Evening Standard A true story of false memories. `Over decades and decades in Iceland people have gone missing without anyone finding anything out.
They just sort of disappear...'In 1974, 18-year-old Gudmundur disappears after a boozy night in a fishing town near Reykjavik.
Eleven months later Geirfinnur, a quiet family man, goes missing from Keflavik harbour in the southwest of Iceland after being summoned by a mysterious phone call from home.
Both men are eventually presumed dead, but their bodies are never found. This quiet island is in an uproar - two disappearances with no forensics, no leads, no clue what has happened.
Soon, the vanishings set in motion an almost surreal series of events, a remarkable tale of corruption, forced confession, false memory and madness that stretches over 40 years. Based on author Simon Cox's celebrated BBC News investigation, The Reykjavik Confessions is a chilling journey of discovery into a dark corner of Icelandic history, and a riveting true-crime thriller that will have you gripped until the very last page.
