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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Needs a new story line"
    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Stephen Hogan?

    I like French but she is getting too predictible, Hogan is a great.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less transparent, afterall it is a mystery


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Hogan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.

    Story
    "You'll re-examine your own beliefs about fairness"
    Would you listen to Broken Harbor again? Why?

    Yes. French's stories are well above most in this genre. But this narrator really nailed it for me. Particularly in his characterizations of Det. Richie Curran, the rookie with people skills and compassion, and in his ability to make the egotistical main character, Mick Kennedy, still elicit our sympathy and cheer for him - that's not easy to do with a character who has a chip on his shoulder the size of the Irish Sea.But Kennedy always does the right thing ... or does he?The book addresses several aspects of mental illness sympathetically but with unflinching clarity. Anyone who has experience with such diagnoses in their family or in themselves, will appreciate that the author portrays this with honesty and excellent description on all sides. French ties up all the strings, save for one. And that one ... well, perhaps best not known. The ending surprised and saddened me, but it was as it should be. It'll be interesting to see what comes next.


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

    I was riveted to the story from the first go. Details, details, descriptions that ring true.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Dina returned to the flat. Mick's interactions with his sister were poignant and well-written.

    "Great book! Great Characters! Great Narration!"

    This is my first Tana French book, but it certainly won't be the last. Really well written Murder-Mystery that has everything you could want from a book. Great characters with a lot of emotional depth and interesting exploration into the human condition. Love this book!

    A major plus is that the narrator was great. Great accents, acting, etc...

    Read/Listen to it!

    "Good but not Great"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think it is a good book, but not as wonderful as her others.


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

    The plot was exciting, but it went on too long.


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    He is an excellent reader.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When you learned about Detective Mick Kennedy's past.


    Any additional comments?

    The relationship between Kennedy and Richie is interesting. I felt that for a good detective Kennedy kept coming with the wrong conclusions. Maybe the plot was too much.
