I absolutely loved this novel. The story is narrated through the view point of a rather relatable character; he was very real to me, which I find to be a rare attribute in modern crime fiction. I loved the twists in plot and subtle imagery; not to be missed!!!! Every part of this novel is superb.
I might! Tana French is very good at building psychological suspense, and Crossley does a fine job of conveying tension and unease. It's easy to guess the killer early on in the story, so a repeat listen wouldn't necessarily suffer from already knowing the ending.
I thought the ending was creepy and unsettling, but in a good way. No big surprises in terms of whodunnit, but the slowly building tension as the detectives figure it out was very compelling.
Not necessarily, but I listened to this book during my morning runs and found it very motivational for getting me up and moving.
I read a later book in the series first and loved it then decided to listen to this one. Loved the narrator and the story.
Yeah, I might recommend it, but I'm not over the moon about this book. Narrator, Crossley, couldn't transition well into other accents, and really blew some of them. This is set in Ireland with Irish characters. They should have Irish accents, and although Adam was supposed to have an English accent, the others had the same accent. Disappointing.
Cassie's analysis of Rosalind. Totally gripping.
Strong/ masculine/ pleasurable
Actually I would.
I began reading the series by starting with Faithful Place, then Broken Harbor, both of which I enjoyed. Going to book#1 after that may have been a mistake.
I would never listen or read another book by either of these individuals.
The story was painfully boring.
There was no QC done. Breaths, stomach growls, dog barks, paper and clothes rustling…all in there. And the story was boring and slow...
Clear narrator who did not distract. Had difficulty shutting it off once the story got going.
