I decided to read this book because I fell in love with Broken Harbor and can I just say WOW. I loved the main character and all the faults she had but most of all I love the twists Tana French can put in her stories of crime. She has a gift for making you see each suspect as the killer one at a time before she finally springs the actual killer on you. She throws hints don’t worry but if you get as wrapped up in the story as I do you won’t pay attention to them until she wants you to. Tana French has a gift and I can say I will be reading more of her books.
This story is about a female detective on the murder squad in Ireland who has a hard time in her job with the other guys and gets thrown a case of what looks like just a lovers tiff. Spoiler it is a lovers tiff but not like you expect and it isn’t what the lead detectives think either. They go back and forth with ideas of what could have happened but none of it seems to fit until finally they figure out their killer and it isn’t someone they expected at all. I recommend reading this book to find out more!
