The Rúin

Author: Dervla McTiernan

Publisher: Harper Collins

Published: February 2018

Galway detective Cormac Reilly is about to reopen a cold case that has haunted him for twenty years. The image of two neglected children in a decaying mansion, their emaciated mother dead upstairs, has never left him. The cold case has links to the recent death of a young man ─ a case which the police are very quick to claim is suicide. Betrayal is at the heart of this unsettling, fast-paced, intricately plotted debut detective novel. Mystery, intrigue, complex twists and turns, police corruption, and Ireland’s dark history of child abuse ─ this atmospheric, seriously terrific crime novel has it all. The book is the first in a series from this Irish, now West Australian writer. We look forward to the next instalment.
