The Ruin

By Dervla McTiernan
Narrated by Aoife McMahon / 10 hours 24 minutes

Cormac Reilly is about to reopen the case that took him twenty years to forget ... The most addictive crime fiction debut of 2018.

"The Ruin is spectacularly good. So CONFIDENT ... excellently written and, at times, heartcatchingly sad" –Marian Keyes

"Dervla McTiernan's first novel outclasses some of the genre's stalwarts making her a crime writer to watch ... fans of Ian Rankin and Tana French will feel right at home" –Bookseller + Publisher (4.5 stars)

"The Ruin is a terrific debut and a rare gem: a compelling crime thriller that delivers depth as well as twists" –Sara Foster, author of The Hidden Hours

Galway 1993: Young Garda Cormac Reilly is called to a scene he will never forget. Two silent, neglected children - fifteen-year-old Maude and five-year-old Jack - are waiting for him at a crumbling country house. Upstairs, their mother lies dead.

Twenty years later, a body surfaces in the icy black waters of the River Corrib. At first it looks like an open-and-shut case, but then doubt is cast on the investigation's findings - and the integrity of the police. Cormac is thrown back into the cold case that has haunted him his entire career - what links the two deaths, two decades apart? As he navigates his way through police politics and the ghosts of the past, Detective Reilly uncovers shocking secrets and finds himself questioning who among his colleagues he can trust.

What really did happen in that house where he first met Maude and Jack? The Ruin draws us deep into the dark heart of Ireland and asks who will protect you when the authorities can't - or won't.
