From Tana French, "the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years" (The Washington Post), the bestseller called "the most stunning of her books"(The New York Times) and a finalist for the Edgar Award. Don't miss her newest, The Trespasser, now available.

Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen-year-old kid with a dream of escaping hisi family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night 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. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, 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:

"[French] revisits, evocatively and lyrically, themes she's used before: love, loss, memory, murder, and life in modern Ireland. French's writing remains brilliant, and her dialogue is sharp, often lacerating, and sometimes mordantly funny. Faithful Place is her best book yet."
-Booklist (starred)
"The charming narrative will leave readers begging for a sequel."
-Kirkus Reviews
"Part Raymond Chandler, part Roddy Doyle, crime fiction's rising star takes it into mesmerizing new territory . . . French's hypnotic storytelling remains in full force in this novel . . . Faithful Place is wrenching to a degree that detective fiction rarely achieves . . . French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it's only growing more miraculous with every book."
-Salon

Tana French s mysteries are like big old trees: the deeper their roots, the more luxurious the foliage they wave in your face.
--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it s only growing more miraculous with every book.
--Laura Miller, Salon.com
An expertly rendered, gripping new novel
--Janet Maslin, The New York Times
Irish writer Tana French hit the big time with her stunning cop-drama debut, In the Woods, and followed it with an equally brilliant book, The Likeness. Both demonstrated French s gift for merging the best traits of the crime genre with the compassionate insights and nimble prose associated with serious literature. A third dazzler, Faithful Place, puts Detective Frank Mackey, a supporting actor from The Likeness, front and center.
--The Seattle Times
French s emotionally searing third novel of the Dublin Murder Squad (after The Likeness) shows the Irish author getting better with each book.
