Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author and Edgar Award winner Tana French grabs listeners with her chilling Dublin murder squad novels. In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    "Must Read!"

    The only negative with this book is the fact that it is the last Tana French available. Please, let there be more. I thoroughly enjoyed each book in this series and really could not pick a favorite.

    "Another great addition the series"
    Where does Broken Harbor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best, another moody, creepy mystery from Tana French.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was great to get a more in depth look at “Scorcher” in this story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When ever he was giving advise to Ritchie.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't know...something about gothic horror


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, it was a great addition to the Dublin Murder Squad series. Not as much humor as “Faithful Place”, and there were some parts of Scorchers brooding that dragged a little. The creepy mood, with the desolate house by the sea, and the family slowly going mad, was well set.

    "Disappointed"
    What did you love best about Broken Harbor?

    Nothing really resonated with me about this book. I would have to say the setting is what I loved.


    If you’ve listened to books by Tana French before, how does this one compare?

    It doesn't.


    Did Stephen Hogan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I enjoyed his narration but it was not nearly as good as Tim Gerard Reynolds from A Faithful Place which was my all time favorite book mostly due to his narration.

    "Horrible book, reviews were misleading!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was the most depressing book that I have ever spent time with, the reviews were so misleading. This is nothing like the other books, which I found wonderful. I knew the ending in the first chapter. I want my money back.


    What didn’t you like about Stephen Hogan’s performance?

    Very depressing, he whined and preached, which made it worse.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    First three books are amazing. This was just awful.

    "Everyone is broken"

    Did not expect to like this when it began, but soon got used to the Irish accents. My only complaint was that, after it went on and revealed more, it proved that there was no one to really identify with--everyone was indeed broken in one way or another. What was revealed about the protagonist made him a less sympathetic character, and less respected.

    Definitely an interesting listen, and although dark and at times rambling, a good mystery.

    "Tana French's best so far"

    Hope she's working on the next in the series. Each one gets better, and she started on a very high level.

    "My Least Favorite of the Dublin Series."

    I was really disappointed in this book. I think that it was the weakest of the Dublin Murder Squad series. True it had Tana French's perfect dialogue writing...but everything else was just OK.

    The mystery wasn't great.
    The main character, Scorcher, was just OK.
    The narrator was just ok.

    "" An ABSORBING LISTEN""

    What a great introduction to the Dublin Murder Squad.,I felt as if as if I was getting to" Know"
    the characters I liked the development of Scorcher and Richie ,Richie comes through with great interviewing techniques , he seems to be a natural. He grows into becoming a detective. The setting was eerie, sort of a depressing place to live. Nothing is what the home owners thought they were buying. Then a horrific murder occurs. This book reveals Scorchers devotion to his disturbed sister Dina. Scorcher is The Job and this is a big case and perhaps he can redeem himself, due to a botched investigation, he hasn't had a high profile case in a while. A voyeur has a nest where he can watch the family and tries to insert himself, He obsesses over times gone by. He enters the house
    hangs out when the family is away just to feel her again. Broken Harbor, haunts Scorcher, due to his mothers death (suicide) during a family vacation. the story has layers of relationships, angst, dread, anguish. It haunted me!. The imagery created a movie in my head not many listens effect me this way. If you like police procedurals and want a walk into the dark side, this is for you, I must add the narration and accents seemed real.

    "Couldn't finish it."

    #1 Aud Bks: T Help, T Darling, All D Sedaris A Prayer for O Meany All G Flynn Lang. of Bees Bel Canto 11/22/63 H2O fr Elephants Dog Stars Pi

    The list above notes my favorite audio books, limited to 140 characters. I would like to add more, and also add a short list of what I did not like (particularly Ken Follett) so that fellow scanners of reviews would have a quick sense of whether to follow a particular reviewers myriad thoughts.

    I liked Tanya French's first book even though it had a poor resolution to the mystery at the end. Somehow this book never caught on with me. I did not feel much empathy for the lead character.
