What Happened to Nina? (2024)
Dervla McTiernan
"What Happened to Nina is one of the best thrillers I have ever read. It is an unforgettable and deeply moving read that takes the concept of how far would you go for your child and turns the volume up so high the dial breaks. Dervla McTiernan is a wickedly gifted writer and she brings a documentary realism to every page of this unforgettable and scary in a good way novel. You will tell your friends about What Happened to Nina. You will tell everybody about What Happened To Nina."
