If and when the war crimes inquiry gets off the ground, Frances Harrison's brilliant exposition — Still Counting the Dead, Survivors of Sri Lanka's Hidden War — will provide a great deal of evidence for its hearings... She deftly selects victims of the conflict from all aspects of Tamil life and vividly recounts their experiences in a book which makes for a searing reading experience.

I hope Frances Harrison’s effort will go down in the history as a welcome first step in the direction of justice and genuine reconciliation.
Frances Harrison reclaims the human catastrophe from the statistics...anybody who has worked on Sri Lanka knows this story has had too little impact. With luck, this book can help change that.
- Financial Times
Still Counting the Dead adds a new layer of detail to the conflict. We come to know the 10 survivors intimately and get a sense of what it was like for Tamil civilians living through the horror.
