Description

“A born storyteller.” Val McDermid

Winner of the 2022 Barry Award for Best Paperback Original
A Crime Reads Pick of Best Books Out This Week

The Good Turn is the highly anticipated third book in the Cormac Reilly Series, which began with the acclaimed The Ruin and The Scholar.

Winner of the 2022 Barry Award for Best Original Paperback

Some lines should never be crossed.

Police corruption, an investigation that ends in tragedy, and the mystery of a little girl’s silence—three unconnected events that will prove to be linked by one small town.

While Detective Cormac Reilly faces enemies at work and trouble in his personal life, Garda Peter Fisher is relocated out of Galway with the threat of prosecution hanging over his head. But even that is not as terrible as having to work for his overbearing father, the local copper for the pretty seaside town of Roundstone.

For some, like Anna and her young daughter, Tilly, Roundstone is a refuge from trauma. But even this village on the edge of the sea isn’t far enough to escape from the shadows of evil men.

“A writer to watch.” Publishers Weekly

“The Good Turn is the sizzling new page turner from author Dervla McTiernan. This gripping novel will appeal to more than just the mystery lover or detective fiction fan. Cormac Reilly has emerged as an admirable protagonist. The storylines that coalesce into a compelling dramatic narrative will leave the reader breathless and yearning for more from this brilliant author.” Seattle Book Review (5/5 stars)

“McTiernan does a marvelous job weaving together several seemingly disparate story lines. The intensive plot wizardry she executes in The Good Turn is truly a pleasure to experience. Remember her name. I sense we’ll be hearing plenty more from McTiernan in the future.” Dayton Daily News
