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.… (lisätietoja)

The Good Turn continues Irish-Australian writer Dervla McTiernan’s Cormac Reilly crime series, which has become a firm favourite in a very short time. Full review at Newtown Review of Books ( )
  austcrimefiction | Oct 18, 2020 |
DS Cormac Reilly is back after his last outing in The Scholar. Still in Ireland, it's now 2015 and he and Peter Fisher are part of a skeleton crew left to man the station when a kidnapping report comes in. Fisher makes a subsequent number of unenviable decisions and the repercussions see him sent from Galway to a station run by his overbearing father. (This isn't a spoiler, it's in the blurb).

The Good Turn introduces the reader to Fisher's back story and I enjoyed learning a little more about his upbringing and family background in Roundstone. Fisher makes the most of his situation by turning his investigative skills to a local double murder while simultaneously trying not to clash with his father.

Back in Galway, Reilly is left battling internal politics and suspected corruption while trying to pursue the child abduction case and salvage his relationship with Emma.

Fisher is the real star of The Good Turn and the shift in focus was a welcome surprise. I enjoyed the multiple story threads and appreciated the way in which they came together in the end.

There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and guessing and I really enjoyed this latest addition to the Cormac Reilly series. I do hope there'll be another from this talented Aussie author.

Highly recommended.

Another satisfying crime drama from Dervla McTiernan, the third in her “Cormac Reilly” series, set in Ireland. Good cops, bad cops, great sense of place and enough suspense to keep me turning those pages. Recommended. ( )

Very readable - slips down like silk.

Cormac Reilly has certainly upset Sergeant Brian Murphy. A crisis comes when a little girl is snatched from the streets and Murphy refuses to give Reilly any officers to help him look for her, because something big is going down on the wharfs. Reilly goes out to interview the parents and back at the station there is a skeleton crew left. Peter Fisher gets a tip off about the car involved in the abduction, and, unable to contact Cormac, follows the tip on his own initiative. The end result is dire and Peter is banished to his father's station north of Galway.

For most of this novel, it looks as if Cormac Reilly has sunk his own boat, and taken Peter Fisher with him.

There are some interesting threads in this novel, mainly centering around police corruption, but also some murders that Peter Fisher uncovers. Some very well drawn characters too.

If you haven't met this series then it is not too late to get started. Do read them in order! ( )

One of the significant plot lines of the series so far is brought to a close in The Good Turn, the third book to feature Irish Garda Detective Cormac Reilly in Dervla McTiernan’s brilliant police procedural series, though not before Reilly nearly loses everything.

It begins when a young girl is abducted from a suburban street and Murphy’s refusal of resources to properly investigate leads Garda Peter Fisher to make a fatal error in judgement. As his supervising officer, Cormac is held responsible for Peter’s actions and suspended, while Peter, threatened with criminal charges, is banished to the small village station his estranged father runs on the Irish coast. Cormac is less worried about his own fate than restoring Peter’s reputation but it soon becomes clear the only way to do so is to take a stand against the corruption that infests not only his station, but the entire Galway police force.

McTiernan skilfully builds the tension as Cormac’s attempts to expose the conspiracy are repeatedly thwarted. A lesser man might simply walk away, as Emma, his girlfriend, encourages him to do, but Reilly simply can’t allow Murphy and his cronies to operate unchecked. The twists and turns of his struggle to bring his corrupt colleagues down, even when it seems inevitable that his twenty year career will end in ignominy, are thrilling.

Meanwhile Peter, resentful in exile, ignores his father’s advice to leave well enough alone when the details in a case of a double murder on the village outskirts don’t quite add up. I really enjoyed Peter’s character development as he is forced to make some difficult choices, and consider what type of police officer he wants to be.

McTiernan’s pacing of the concurrent story threads, of which there are several, is perfect, and the icy setting of a freezing Irish winter artfully reinforces the notion that both Cormac and Peter are ‘out in the cold’.

With it’s stellar characterisation, intricate plotting and vivid description, The Good Turn, like its predecessors, The Ruin and The Scholar, are a must read. I can’t wait for the next. ( )
