The Ruin, by Dervla McTiernan, paperback


Shortlisted for the Guardian ‘Not the Booker’ Prize.

Twenty years ago, Garda Cormac Reilly worked on a case involving a dead mother and two neglected children. As he changes jobs and returns to Galway, the two seem to return to haunt him. What ties a recent suicide to the event of two decades ago? 

Wonderful characters and a sublime twisty plot.
