Fans of Dervla McTiernan can rest easy for the next few years. HarperCollins Publishers has acquired three new books from bestselling crime writer Dervla McTiernan, in a deal with Tara Wynne at Curtis Brown Australia. The first two books in McTiernan’s Galway-based DS Cormac Reilly series, The Rúin and The Scholar, are bestsellers in Australia and Ireland. The Rúin was recently shortlisted for General Fiction Book of the Year at the Australian Book Industry Awards and film rights have been optioned by Hopscotch. The third book in the DS Cormac Reilly series will be published in March 2020.

The first book in McTiernan’s new deal will be published in 2021 and will see DS Carrie O’Halloran take centre stage. Publisher Anna Valdinger said: ‘I am hugely excited to have signed up more books from Dervla. She’s a tremendous talent and her novels are getting better and better – truly unputdownable, stay-up-all-night reads. I can’t wait to go back to Galway for more of Cormac, Carrie and the team.’

Dervla McTiernan said: ‘HarperCollins have championed me from the beginning. They are an exceptional team of thorough professionals who also just happen to be some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. I feel very lucky to be published by them and I’m so over the moon happy that I get to keep telling the stories I love.’

            Fabulous, I look forward to reading more of Dervla’s books.

          2. Maureen McEwan says:

            I have really enjoyed The Ruin and The Scholar EXCEPT that many of the characters have impossible Irish names and it is difficult to imagine them. Could you please have a glossary at the beginning of the next book giving the approximate pronunciation. Who would think that Niahm would be pronounced Neeve? If every time you see the name you stop to wonder about it it ruins the continuity and that is very frustrating. Don’t stop using these names ….. just help us to accept them.
