Dervla McTiernan

Born in County Cork, Ireland, to a family of seven, Dervla practised as a corporate lawyer for twelve years. Following the global financial crisis, she moved with her family to Western Australia, where she now lives with her husband and two children. Her debut The Ruin and the follow-up The Scholar were published to widespread acclaim. The Good Turn, in 2020, went straight to no.1 on the bestseller charts. An avid fan of crime and detective novels from childhood, Dervla now writes full time. Her latest book The Murder Rule will be released in May 2022.
