Product description

Review

[THE RUIN] is a very fine novel . . . excellently written and, at times, heartcatchingly sad (Marian Keyes)

Corruption, clandestine cover-ups and criminal conspiracy ... [THE RUIN] is as moving as it is fast-paced (Val McDermid)

Instantly hauling the reader into its permanently charged atmosphere, THE RUIN is as convincing as it is multi-layered, as compelling as it is complex, and heralds the arrival of Dervla McTiernan as a future star of the genre (Chris Brooymyre)

[THE RUIN] is a compelling story with beautifully drawn characters (Laura Marshall)

Brilliantly crafted . . . incredibly real-feeling characters. [THE RUIN] is an absolute treat! (Sunday Mirror)

[THE RUIN] is absolutely brilliant. Wonderful characters, authentic setting, and a sublime, twisty plot (Irish Examiner)

An exciting new voice in Irish noir (Sunday Times (Crime Club))

I can't wait to read the next one . . . a star crime writer is born! (Books Ireland)

A well-crafted police procedural, this is the second entry in a series which looks like taking its place in what is currently becoming something of a golden age for Irish crime writing (Morning Star)

About the Author

Dervla McTiernan's debut novel, The Rúin, was a critically acclaimed international bestseller published around the world. The Rúin won the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction, the Davitt Award for Best Adult Fiction and the Barry Award for Best Original Paperback, and was shortlisted for numerous other awards. It was on the Amazon US Best Book of the Year list in 2018 and screen rights were snapped up by Hopscotch Features.

Dervla's second book, The Scholar, debuted into the Nielsen Bookscan Top 5 on release in 2019, and her third, The Good Turn, went straight to no.1, confirming her place as one of Australia's best crime writers.

Born in County Cork, Ireland, to a family of seven, Dervla practised as a corporate lawyer for twelve years. Following the global financial crisis, she moved with her family to Western Australia, where she now lives with her husband and two children. An avid fan of crime and detective novels from childhood, Dervla now writes full time.
