This novel grabs from the beginning and doesn't let go. I think it is the best of this series so far, with In The Woods being my second favorite. Tana French definitely has the gift of knowing how to build suspense.
Great storyline with a murder scene which is like a jigsaw puzzle. Three members of this loving, happy family are dead with no signs of a break-in and no murder weapons. The remaining family member is hanging onto life by a thread. The house is kept in pristine condition-- except for those unsightly holes in the walls everywhere and baby monitors set up in odd places.
The only issue I have is the ending was too long and drawn out and perhaps a little implausible. It would have been a complete 5 star rating if the ending had been wrapped up a little tighter.
