Description

The "expertly rendered, gripping new novel" (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)-from the bestselling author of In the Woods and The Likeness.

Tana French's In the Woods and The Likeness captivated readers by introducing them to her unique, character-driven style. Her singular skill at creating richly drawn, complex worlds makes her novels not mere whodunits but brilliant and satisfying novels about memory, identity, loss, and what defines us as humans. With Faithful Place, the highly praised third novel about the Dublin Murder squad, French takes readers into the mind of Frank Mackey, the hotheaded mastermind of The Likeness, as he wrestles with his own past and the family, the lover, and the neighborhood he thought he'd left behind for good.

    Simply marvelous! The reader is a participant in this wrenching vivid tale of family ties. I caught myself with a heart racing a couple of times and I hoped to go uninterrupted in my reading. This is a creative masterpiece.

    Found it to be a very entertaining, but did not keep intensely intrigued like the previous books. I just fall in love with her writing, but this one is quite predictable.
  • Nice read

    Ms. French has again written a very good story. Alas, she has a way of leaving her readers with answers to the mysteries, but with a sadness relating to her characters, many of whom are very flawed human beings.
  • A bit... No, much too predictable

    I'm not usually a mystery/thriller type reader but I happened upon In the Woods a few months back and couldn't put it down. Naturally I wanted to see what else Tana French had up her sleeve. As usual, character development didn't disappoint. French does an excellent job of weaving together characters' pasts with the present as an explanation of the plot. It remained one of my favorite things about this book. Setting is also huge for me and again, all of my descriptive needs were met. In reading the oftentimes long descriptions of streets of Ireland, back gardens, and crime scenes I could imagine myself there. Lastly, the story itself kept my attention and made it hard to put down. I'm refraining from offering up the fifth star only because I liked In the Woods better. If you're even remotely interested in crime stories or great settings I would highly recommend this.
  • Good but not great

    A bit predictable and easy to guess the solve for the mystery. As with French's other novels there are hanging threads in the end....

    Blah blah blah... Once you read the first tedious chapters you can guess who the killer is. What is supposed to be charming Irish neighborhood memories is boring, repetitive background detail. If you want a well written novel involving family conflict read "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck.
