Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Long, lovely tale"

    I bought this the day that I finished In The Woods, though I liked the first book better, I think it is because that one pulled such an emotional response. This book made me love Cassie, justin, Rafe, Abby and Daniel. I, like Cassie, became enchanted by their simple life and felt connected to them, invested in what happened to them. The Narrator was brilliant. I knew who was speaking simply by her voice. I could listen to her speaking as Daniel all day long!

    "Didn't buy the premise, but moved past it."

    Premise is a bit far fetched, but once the undercover work started it was a very interesting character study. I liked it very much.

    "Too long..."
    What made the experience of listening to The Likeness the most enjoyable?

    This was a good story, but there was a level of detail that wasn't needed to develop the characters.

    "Eerie and captivating"

    I am a fan of Tana French's works and was not disappointed in this book. She fleshes out the characters early and embroiders nuances right up to the end.
    All of this was masterfully portrayed by the narrator who moves easily from one character to another so clearly that the listener cannot get confused about who is speaking.
    I loved it!

    "So good I never wanted to finish it!"

    Excellent follow up to In the Woods but even better: great depth of character, fabulous descriptive detail, and a riveting plot.

    "Good Prose but Completely Not Believable"

    Entertaining story with good prose and an fascinating characters. But I'm giving the book three stars because it just required me to suspend my disbelief so much. The implausibility of having a detective who is actually identical to a murder victim is just a little too much to bear. That on top of the melodramatic gothic style made it fall from what should have been an excellent read to something passably appealing. I'd recommend this to fans of grim mysteries and, quite frankly, gothic or even supernatural novels.
