The Good Turn
Cormac Reilly #3
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.
Faultless, brilliant, tense, complex…this book lives up to all the hype!
This, the third book in the Cormac Reilly series, is an outstanding, read in one sitting type of read!
I don’t know what else I can add to this review that you wouldn’t have already seen/read/heard somewhere else before. This is intricate story of corruption, of love and of vice and fortitude.
This book has definitely secured a place on my “Best reads of 2020” list. Do yourself a favour and immerse yourself in this series, you won’t regret it.
You had me at the setting, Carol. I do like an Irish context when it’s done well, and it sounds as though McTiernan gets it right here. That’s an interesting blend of personal and professional character development and plot line, too. Little wonder you were drawn in.
This was an outstanding read – now I wonder what we can expect next from this author Margot ?
