    Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    Michael says: "Really on a Different Level"
    "Beautiful writing, rich characterization"
    Overall

    This is a follow-up to In the Woods, which I also liked very much. In this book, as in that one Ireland is itself a character, and a very complex one at that. The mystery lies in the way French knots the characters together and then works at picking that knot apart. The solution is really a moment in which we see the characters for who they are behind carefully constructed personas.

    Cassie is a wonderful narrator, with a rich and vivid voice, beautifully rendered by Ms. O'Neill.

    Make no mistake, this is a literary mystery for those who thrive on setting and characterization.
