Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to deal with the events of In the Woods. She is out of the Murder Squad and has started a relationship with fellow detective Sam O'Neill but is too badly shaken to commit to Sam or to her career. Then Sam is allocated a new case, that of a young woman stabbed to death just outside Dublin. He calls Cassie to the murder scene and she finds the victim is strangely familiar. In fact, she is Cassie's double. Not only that, but her ID says she is Lexie Madison the identity Cassie used, years ago, as an undercover detective. With no leads, no suspects and no clues, Cassie's old undercover boss spots the opportunity of a lifetime: to send Cassie undercover in the dead girl's place. She could pick up information the police would never hear and tempt the killer to finish the job. So Cassie moves into Whitethorn House, poses as a post-grad student, and prepares to enter Lexie's world.

The Likeness is the second book in the Dublin Murder Squad series. I liked it, but not quite as much as the first. The plot was very far-fetched, but I went in with that understanding. I suspended my disbelief and allowed myself to think, "OK, so if all the stars aligned in just the right way, somet...
This book was wonderful. Every time I opened it I felt like I just fell right through the pages to stand next to the characters. I felt like I could hear the music, taste the wine, feel the sun and rain. The mystery was there but not overly present, if that makes sense. It drove the story but that w...
