The Good Turn: Cormac Reilly, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
"With her third novel, Dervla McTiernan confirms she's a born storyteller." (Val McDermid)
The unputdownable number one best seller from the 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.
Praise for Dervla Mc Tiernan:
"Intelligent and fast-paced.... We can't wait [for the next case]." (Wall Street Journal)
"Top-notch crime writing." (Kate Forsyth)
"Like The Ruin, The Scholar is a fast-paced, rewarding read." (Irish Examiner)
"A truly fine police procedural that should see the author rocket from star to superstar." (Irish Independent)
"Taut, tense and darkly addictive." (Candice Fox)
"Confirms McTiernan's place in the top rank of crime writers." (Chris Hammer)
"The Ruin was an outstanding debut but The Scholar proves beyond a doubt that Dervla McTiernan is a remarkable talent...crime fiction of the highest standard." (Jane Casey)
"A story that is as moving as it is fast-paced." (Val McDermid)
"A writer to watch." (Publishers Weekly)
"Dervla McTiernan's first novel far outclasses some of the genre's stalwarts, marking her as a crime writer to watch, and Cormac Reilly a cop to follow to hell and back. Fans of Ian Rankin and Tana French will feel right at home." (Bookseller + Publisher)

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
At times I wondered if this was a story about Cormac or Peter, and how they related. Then the whole thing got darker - Both detectives seeking their futures ending in disgrace.
Then it turned around quickly - an arrest - a surprise finding of evidence - and an exciting ending to wrap up all the conspirency and see the bent police off. Very satisfying, particularly Brian Murphy.
I guess that I struggled in parts through the novel, but certainly enjoyed if as it came to the climax.
Will Cormac return in edition four? I hope so, with Fisher along side him.
Well done Dervla

It's not just the first disc either, it's the same on all 9 CDs. I've struggled my way to the third CD, but I'm ready to give up. I should have just 'spent' an Audible credit and bought the audiobook that way, but I wanted to be able to pass the CDs on to a friend when I finished the book.
EDITED : Upon seeing my previous comments, the publisher quickly contacted me. Within a week, they sent me a new set of CDs that are in the proper order. Kudos to them for their quick and helpful response!
I finished listening to the book this week and am happy to say the story was just as good as I'd hoped it would be. I hope the series continues, as I'm eager to see what happens next with Cormac, Peter and the rest.
