9780143119494: Faithful Place

The hotly anticipated third novel of the Dublin murder squad from the New York Times bestselling author

Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was nineteen, growing up poor in Dublin's inner city, and living crammed into a small flat with his family on Faithful Place. But he had his sights set on a lot more. He and Rosie Daly were all ready to run away to London together, get married, get good jobs, break away from factory work and poverty and their old lives.

But on the winter night when they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again.

Neither did Rosie. Everyone thought she had gone to England on her own and was over there living a shiny new life. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank is going home whether he likes it or not.

Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly-and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done.

Review:

Praise for THE LIKENESS:

'An intricate and edgy top-notch psychological thriller.'

( Woman and Home)

Creepily melding elements of Donna Tartt's 'The Secret History' and undercover police procedural, THE LIKENESS by Tana French, seduces from the start... A nifty tale of desire for belonging, as well as a cool thriller ( Time Out)

Beautifully written and elegantly descriptive, this is a true literary detective novel rather than a whodunnit ( Irish Mail on Sunday)

The Likeness isn't just a good page-turner, but a skilfully written modern novel . . . French has a brilliant ear for dialogue . . . Also in the best tradition of classic crime writers, such as P D James and Ruth Rendell, her characters are fully-rounded people and she is able to layer plots and storylines with a mastery that belies the fact that it is only her second book. ( Sunday Independent)

French's second foray into the dark world of psychological crime more than proves she's the real deal ( Daily Mirror)

Book Description:

A compelling psychological mystery from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction
