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.

Tana French follows her stunning accomplished debut, IN THE WOODS, with an equally compelling psychological mystery that confirms her place as one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.Review:
An intricate and edgy top-notch psychological thriller. (Woman and Home)
Beautifully written and elegantly descriptive, this is a true literary detective novel rather than a whodunnit (Irish Mail on Sunday)
An eerie thriller, perfect for holidays (Sunday World )
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 )
French's second foray into the dark world of psychological crime more than proves she's the real deal (Daily Mirror)
Creepy stuff (Independent)
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. (Anne Marie Scanlon, Sunday Independent, Dublin)
lush, intense and gorgeous (Reviewing the Evidence website)
