RTé journalist Sinéad Crowley was joined by her family as she launched her book 'One Bad Turn'.

The arts and media correspondent at the broadcaster has also carved out a career as a writer and the latest offering follows the warmly received thriller 'Can Anybody Help Me?' and her second book 'Are You Watching Me?'.

Sinéad was joined by her son Conor (7) and husband Andrew Phelan, who works for the Irish Independent.

RTÉ colleague Rick O'Shea helped launch the book at the Dubray store on Grafton Street and was joined by a number of authors.

Sinéad told the Irish Independent she was "delighted" to get the book out there and for people to enjoy it.

She said that writing can be a "solitary" experience at times, so to enjoy a launch with friends and family was very enjoyable.

She added: "It is a series, there is a central character - Detective Sergeant Claire Boyle - and this is the third book.

"It's lovely to have a launch and have your friends around."

Sinéad said there was a lot of talent in the crime writing genre in Ireland. She added: "It is the type of book I like to read, so it is the type of book I like to write."
