    I liked the other books in the series better than this one. Book #3 was my favorite.

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

    Right up there at the top - story lines are great and performances wonderful by this author! I am going back to read the first two... a friend loaned me Faithful Place and I was not sure I'd like this as this was about a character I did not like a lot in that book, but it was excellent!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The character development and histories of all the characters woven in the story kept it completely interesting...


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    It is authentic - right down to the accent. He keeps you engaged.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is too long for that! I listed while traveling for work, and found myself really looking forward to the longer commutes so I could get more reading time!


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend Tara French to anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery, especially if they (as I am..) are partial to British, Scottish, Irish or the Scandinavian authors.

    Story
    "Sticking with the Squad"
    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    The main character, playing an undercover cop struggled with her role. Truly becoming a part of the circle of friends she was infiltrating. They, oddly filled a void in her life. But while there was this dark complexity, the story moved you into her plight and kept you there. Experiencing the same ambiguities she had.

    Great series. The author "showcases" one member of the Murder Squad in each book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Instead of the urge to listen in one sitting, I loved "living with" the characters over a period.

    "Whole Series Is Excellent & This May Be Best"
    Would you listen to Broken Harbor again? Why?

    No. I have yet to listen to a book again and don't read them again since childhood.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All her characters are flawed even though you identify with them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but too long for this to be realistic.


    Any additional comments?

    This can be listened to without listening to the rest of the series.

    Story
    "Was there something in the water?"

    Many plot twists and turns in this story. Sitting here thinking about the book makes me believe that there was something in the water to make the residence of Bryan's Town nutty. I love a book that makes you be your own detective trying to solve the murder. This book was no exception. Broken Harbor makes you appreciate the detail that goes into an investigation to solve the mystery but also the human aspect of doing the job right and not allowing your own personal demons alter the outcomes.

    One thing that irks me with all of her books is the way she writes a story about the detective within a story but you never solve the mystery of the detective's background. I guess that is her writers M.O.

    The narration by Stephen Hogan was very well done. I enjoyed the Irish lilt and common everyday lingo. The distinction between all characters were very well played.

    Overall I will always be a Tana French fan always wanting just a little bit more about the detective.

    Story
    "Classic and Perfect - Narrator deserves a Tony"
    Where does Broken Harbor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am blown away by this book. This is the third "Dublin Murder Squad" novel. The first, In The Woods, is an intense and wild ride. The next, The Likeness, is sort of difficult to take but well-built and intriguing, This one is the payoff. It may be the best audiobook I have ever listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Harbor?

    The way the plot unfolds is like taking a walk and rounding the corner to show you a new panorama. You forget it's a book. I have a hard time picking just one of these moments.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is a talented actor and his line reading is perfect. Every character has such a distinct sound you don't need to wait for the author to identity him or her. This is one of those books that pulls you in so completely that you can't do much else while listening.

    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Stephen Hogan?

    Consistently good.


    Do you think Broken Harbor needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    "Wild Ride"

    It started a little slow, but once it got going this book was really great. A classic "who done it". The performance was always top notch and Mr. Hogan's voice a natural for the main character. I thought the subplot was interesting too. How one deals with mental illness in their family.
