Another cracking read from Dervla McTiernan. The Good Turn is straight off the blocks intense, tight and tangled - the very best kind of crime fiction. One of those rare occasions where you find yourself halfway through thinking - how is she going to pull this off? And then racing through the rest to find out. The Good Turn elevates the world of Cormac Reilly and the Irish Gardai to another spectacular level. Excellent police procedural/crime thriller - I can't wait for the next one!

LOVED it. Easily the best of the three in my opinion. I wasn't sure how the dual narrative was going to pull together but it did in a hugely satisfying way. Fans of the previous two books will be pleased with the way this third novel continues the characters journeys. It feels like an ending of sorts but simultaneously I hope she's writing heaps more with these characters as I'm definitely not ready to let them go.

Thanks Harper Collins for the signed proof!

In THE GOOD TURN, Dervla McTiernan conveys mood so exquisitely. Most of the book feels grey, gloomy, morose – fitting perfectly with the storylines of the two main characters.
Towards the end, you get a feeling of the sun just starting to break through, again matching the breaks in the cases beginning to appear.
Just brilliant !
The storylines are compelling, and I really love Cormac Reilly as a character.
