Publisher Description

No one is innocent in this story ...

The unmissable no.1 bestselling New York Times thriller of the year

First Rule: Make them like you.

Second Rule: Make them need you.

Third Rule: Make them pay.

They think I'm a young, idealistic law student, that I'm passionate about reforming a corrupt and brutal system.

They think I'm working hard to impress them.

They think I'm here to save an innocent man on death row.

They're wrong. I'm going to bury him.

'Complex, unsettling and relentless, with a female protagonist on a journey of self-discovery that will culminate in a riveting final act, The Murder Rule is a great read' Sydney Morning Herald

'Tense and fascinating, dripping with the sort of suspense and intrigue we've come to depend on from Dervla McTiernan' Christian White

'An extremely smart, thoroughly addictive, super twisty legal thriller that strikes the perfect balance between high-stakes action and real emotional depth. An absolute must-read, I guarantee you won't be able to put it down.' Anna Downes, author of The Safe Place

'Clever and compelling, Dervla McTiernan has seamlessly switched from fast-paced police procedural to original and suspenseful legal drama without missing a beat.' Sarah Bailey, author of The Housemate

'Diabolically clever, highly compelling and deeply moving' Don Winslow, New York Times bestselling author of City on Fire

Great story

It’s almost everything a crime thriller should be. Great twist and plot with no gratuitous violence

It was okay

I have read some pretty fantastic books lately and this okay, a quick easy read - but it just didn’t stack up to my previous reads.
