Waterstones Says

Powering through layers of increasingly jaw-dropping twists, McTiernan's blistering legal thriller centres on a seemingly idealistic law student's determination to save a convict on death row.

No one is innocent in this story.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Gripping and full of tension, with twist after unexpected twist. You won't just read The Murder Rule, you'll devour it.' - Karin Slaughter

'Deceptive and devious, this twisted and turned in exactly the way I hoped it would, resulting in an ultimately satisfying conclusion. A fantastic read.' - Sam Holland, author of The Echo Man

'The Murder Rule is utterly absorbing, entertaining and intriguing.' - Liz Nugent, author of Lying In Wait

'The Murder Rule has nailed something fundamentally true about being human; that none of us are quite who we pretend to be and that being the hero in your own story doesn't stop you from being the villain in someone else's. Grabs you from the first page and refuses to let go. Brilliant.' - Gabriel Bergmoser, author of The Hunted

'Dervla McTiernan is an extraordinary writer, and The Murder Rule is a brilliant, breathtaking, and irresistible thriller with unforgettable characters and twists on top of twists.' - T. J. Newman, author of Falling
