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.

    "Best of the three"

    Gorgeous language, an inventive plot, and a believable mystery. Better writing than In the Woods and a much better character study of the five friends than the trite dysfunctional family of Faithful Place. The other books are very good--this one is sensational!

    "Mesmerizing, complex, real"

    I loved this book, the narrator, the plot, the writing, the characters. It was as good as the first one,In The Woods. I highly recommend it. The plot complexity, the imagery, the characters all combine to make a fascinating story that I had to finish. I wonder if Tana French will write another. I hope so.

    "Beautiful writing, rich characterization"

    This is a follow-up to In the Woods, which I also liked very much. In this book, as in that one Ireland is itself a character, and a very complex one at that. The mystery lies in the way French knots the characters together and then works at picking that knot apart. The solution is really a moment in which we see the characters for who they are behind carefully constructed personas.

    Cassie is a wonderful narrator, with a rich and vivid voice, beautifully rendered by Ms. O'Neill.

    Make no mistake, this is a literary mystery for those who thrive on setting and characterization.

    "Love Tana French"

    Ms French is my new favorite author. Her books have great plots, great character development, twists and turns. I like the reader best from Faithful Place - he was awesome! If you like a good psychological thriller than her books are for you.

    "Not as good"

    I really liked "The Woods," which should be read first. I had to suspend disbelief too much in this book -- the main character can act like a B horror movie protagonist.

    However, the book is fairly intelligent and entertaining and I'd recommend it.

    "I loved this one!"

    This is a sequel to "In the Woods" I picked this first as I have trouble listening to male narrators do female voices. So far I have not found one who does not make all the female voices sound the same, and none in character.
    However, I liked this one so much, I just ordered the other.
    The narrator here is wonderful, and the complexities of all the characters unfolds beautifully.
    Now that I have finished it, the characters as well as the authoress are still developing in my mind.

    "Characters rich, story unique"

    Very satisfying to read, a page turner with subtle tones, shadings, inferences, mood swings, and colorations. Tana French knows how to grab the readers and make them care about the characters. I couldn't wait to find out what the characters did next. I actually sneaked it into work and listened with a hidden ear bud for an hour...I HAD TO KNOW what happened next! So smooth, such talent. All the books I have listened to by Tana French were excellent, and can be read in order for best effects, but OK to read out of order too.

    "Excellent"

    The Likeness is great, it kept me guessing and captured chapter after chapter just like "In the Woods". I hope Audible's customer service comes up with a way to warning me if Tana French comes up with another sequel. O'Neil is an great too. A must have.

    "Fun Listen"

    OK, admittedly, the story isn't very believable, but I liked this story. I loved the narrator's accent, and Ms. French paints a lovely world with words. I liked this story enough to recommend it. Cheers!

    Story
    "Trivial story hardly worth the effort."
    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Heather O'Neill?

    I am done.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Informant


    Have you listened to any of Heather O'Neill???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she does well.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like the detectives, but the story is so trivial I cannot understand why such an undertaking by the police would ever take place.
