The unputdownable new novel from the bestselling author of The Ruin and The Scholar.

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.

    Well, what a book. I obviously read the books from Dervla McTiernan in the wrong order, as this is the latest book, and I have yet to read the other 2.

    The Good Turn is an engrossing read that builds on the characters and the shadows of corruption present in the two earlier novels in Dervla McTiernan’s series. But you can start with this book. The setting is present day Ireland with a quick trip to Belgium and Lyon that reminds us of the international nature of contemporary crime and policing. Every paragraph is essential to this exploration of levels of police corruption and how easily it can become embedded with awful consequences. The characters and the story lines make it difficult to put down so you may decide to reread this book at a more leisurely pace to savour the writing.The Good Turn is an engrossing read that builds on the characters and the shadows of corruption present in the two earlier novels in Dervla McTiernan’s series.
