Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return. Years later, though, Rosie’s suitcase is found in an abandoned house, and Frank, now a detective, returns to his old neighborhood to learn the truth of that long-ago night.

What the Critics Say

"French’s writing remains brilliant, and her dialogue is sharp, often lacerating, and sometimes mordantly funny. Faithful Place is her best book yet." (Booklist)

    "Darkest of Family Murders"

    Tana French is an exceptional story teller and Tim Reynolds is the perfect iIrish reader. It was poetry dealing with the dark side of disfunctional Irish life wrapped in a terrific murder mystery.

    "This author and narrator are a great combination"

    I love this author, I can't wait for another in this series. The narrator is great, the story is amazingly complicated with family drama, murder, divorce, sibling rivalry, custody battle, secrets kept for 20 plus years. It's a great listen.

    "An Entertaining Listen???but painful!"

    The main character, like most of the rest of his family (excluding one of his sisters), has so many flaws that you just want to cringe! But all in all a terrific book. I figured out "who done it" early on, but the depth of characterization kept my attention and I ended up just feeling compassion for everyone. Such a dysfunctional family! My, my! But oh what a listen!

    "Disappointing"

    It was supposed to be an intriguing mystery, but the plot was thin and what it really was was a limp glimpse at a disfunctional Irish family. I kept looking to see how close I was to finishing this one. Good reviews? But, not from me.

    "Totally absorbing"

    This is the kind of book that sticks with you for a few days. I had a little trouble sleeping the night I finished it because of ruminating about this book. The other book I read with that feeling was Sophie's Choice. I agree with others who have said this is not the typical mystery book. The narrator was top notch, and he really made the book come alive. This was a book that I sat in the driveway listening to after driving for 6 hours! I hope she continues to write more books, as she has a gift for character exploration and emotionality with the ring of truth.

    "Wonderful book and narrator"

    Currently listening to this book and am dreading when it ends, it has been a joy to listen to. The narrator makes the book come to life and the story keeps you guessing. Definately recommend this one.

    "Interesting read, but...."

    I enjoyed the story presented in this book. It was a good read about an old murder, a new murder and a very dysfunctional family. The narrator did a fine job. It kept my interest all the way through, but I have rarely heard so many cuss words spoken in conversations in my life. There were many new British cuss words and I would have worn out a counter keeping track of the F- bomb. While it may be true that the lower class Irish family in the story was lacking in vocabulary and education, I find it hard to believe that anyone would actually talk this way. When the plot was moving along there were few cuss words, but every time it slowed and the family was back in the story it was a vulgar language assualt once again. Would have given it 4 stars if it were cleaned up a bit.

    "What a ride!"

    This may be the most emotionally charged book I have ever heard, as the main characters are all pissed off with one another at some point, and the strength of the love that drives the novel is so powerful that it supercharges those emotions further. Then too, the emotions are all suppressed...you know that whatever you're hearing there's much more under the surface. French does a great job of maintaining the energy and gives us a good mystery, to boot.
    The reader is as good as the readers get, and you will feel that you are in Dublin, and that every one of those voices he has belongs to a distinct individual.
    My wife hadn't listened to it, and I was glad to listen to it again with her on a long car ride...it was as good the second time through!

    "the best so far..."

    I've enjoyed her books but this is the best one so far. It helps to really get a feel for the main character. Tana French is most successful in this book.

    "I was living it!"

    The narrator,Tim Gerard Reynolds, was the best! Every character was so very real - and his rendition of "Ma" will simply crack you up (most of the time). He led me into Faithful Place and I felt like I knew every single character personally. Tana French is an excellent writer. Her perspectives are unparalled and she made me fall in love with Frank. Can't every man be like that?
