A wonderful book; if you've never read Tana French, this is a totally excellent introduction, and you won't be sorry.
Tana French has a real knack for developing characters and relationships, and for writing dialogue.
This was a new author for me and I wasn't sure what to expect. But this book is wonderful; suspenseful, surprising. I've since had to buy her last two books, Likeness and Faithful Place. Now the only thing I can ask for is a sequel to this book to let us know what happened to Jaimie and Peter.
I enjoyed this audiobook immensely! Tana French is great writer. Can't wait to get the next audiobook in the series.
Could have been so much better. I don't buy a feminized gelding detective who yearns to give foot massages and has none of the assurance or self control displayed by his O So Smart female partner. If the genders of the characters were reversed this would be rejected as a sexist waste of time. It still is. Could have been a great story but appears the author ran out of interest, or energy, or whatever...
Say something about yourself!
It took a while for me to enjoy this book. The reader's accent was killing me but I continued to listen. It got interesting at the end and I wasn't expecting the outcome. Just be patience and the story will pick up.
This is one of those rare books that will hook you from the start. It is the cleverest dialogue I have heard in a long time. It is a value at one credit.
I have been an Audible member for a couple of years now and this is the first review I have written on any book. Tana French was an unknown author to me, I selected her book by the length not content. I was very pleasantly surprised by Tana's first book! The story was a real page turner (if there were pages). The characters, plot, and story line were all A+!! Congrats to Tana on her first effort! I'm going out right now to buy her last book and actually read it!! Sorry Audible!!
Tana French is a talented writer. This book, as well as her more recent work, The Likeness, were intriguing, compelling stories with complex, believable characters. I eagerly await her next novel.
I really enjoyed the book. I also enjoyed the accent of the reader. It is on my Christmas list to family and friends.
