The Ruin - Dervla McTiernan

Another gem off the TBR pile. This author's debut is a compelling, character driven story that kind of sneaks up on you. If you're a fan of car chases & shootouts, look elsewhere. It's a slow burner with an edge that subtly builds tension as you become fully invested in the characters & their outcomes.

Multiple story lines keep things moving but most of the action is reserved for an explosive finish. Comparisons to Tana French are justified & I'll definitely be picking up her next book.
