Every week I check in with one of Australia’s favourite authors, asking them five quick questions, and to tell us about their latest book. This week I’m delighted to welcome crime writing legend and my dear friend @dervlamctiernan 🎉
ABOUT DERVLA: Number one internationally bestselling author Dervla McTiernan is the critically acclaimed author of five novels, including The Murder Rule, which was a New York Times thriller of the year and the bestselling Cormac Reilly Series (The Ruin, The Scholar and The Good Turn). Dervla has won multiple prizes, including a Ned Kelly Award, Davitt Awards, a Barry Award, and an International Thriller Writers Award. Dervla is also the author of four novellas, and her audio novella, The Sisters, was a four-week number one bestseller in the United States. The Daily Mail referred to her writing as ‘glorious storytelling to rival John Grisham’ and the New York Times has called her ‘an uncommonly fine mystery writer.’ Dervla lives in Western Australia with her family.
So, Dervla, tell us what you’re…

TELL US ABOUT YOUR LATEST BOOK: My new book, What Happened to Nina?, is out on 28th Feb in Australia, and a few weeks later in the US and the UK. It starts with a young couple, Simon and Nina. They’re fun, they’re in love ... so likeable ... basically Instagram perfect. Then they go away for a weekend and only Simon comes home. The book’s about what happens next — when Nina’s family is doing everything they can to get to the truth about what happened, and Simon’s family goes to extreme lengths to protect him.
