The haunting follow up to the Edgar Award-winning debut In the Woods Tana French astonished critics and readers alike with her mesmerizing debut novel, In the Woods. Now both French and Detective Cassie Maddox return to unravel a case even more sinister and enigmatic than the first. Six months after the events of In the Woods, an urgent telephone call beckons Cassie to a grisly crime scene. The victim looks exactly like Cassie and carries ID identifying herself as Alexandra Madison, an alias Cassie once used. Suddenly, Cassie must discover not only who killed this girl, but, more importantly, who is this girl? A disturbing tale of shifting identities, The Likeness firmly establishes Tana French as an important voice in suspense fiction. And look for French's new mystery, Broken Harbor, for more of the Dublin Murder Squad. 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 and her new mystery, Broken Harbor, is eagerly anticipated. 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.

I suspended my disbelief and allowed myself to think, "OK, so if all the stars aligned in just the right way, somet...

5.0 The Likeness
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...

The Dublin Murder Squad has become quite the group and this book is definitely my favorite so far. I love that each book is from another character's point of view and a totally different case. I mystery stays a mystery up to the climax which makes this book one you can't put down.
