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.

    "Way to long"

    It was thrilling in the beginning and I listened all the way through. But about 60% of the way through the book I started to feel it was toooooo drawn out

    "Great story, but read the book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Broken Harbor to be better than the print version?

    Get the book, the narration is just annoying.


    What other book might you compare Broken Harbor to and why?

    Much like the other Tana French books, similar to the Shetland series and the "Vera" mysteries


    What didn’t you like about Stephen Hogan’s performance?

    I can't say enough to warn you away from the audible version. I know some people have said the Irish accent is unintelligible, which it's not, really, but the narrator is difficult to listen to, overly dramatic, and at times screechy. His interpretation of the main character's sister is enough to make you as mad crazy as she is. I finally stopped listening and bought the book during one of her extended rants.


    Any additional comments?

    The mysteries within the mystery itself will keep you reading, just read it and enjoy your own voices for the characters.

    Story
    "Compassionate, understanding, and intense."
    Where does Broken Harbor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right up there in line with the best


    What did you like best about this story?

    The depth of character development draws you in, you can believe that these are real people and you are right there with them. It's so real.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    My favorite character is the lead character, Mike. His back story is tightly integrated and slowly revealed. Stephen's performance, with all its emotional strength, brings his gruff but sensitive nature to life,


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book but I was transported to Ireland and Broken Harbour at each listening.

    "Just What I Needed..."

    Post holidays, I was hoping for a good story to get lost in. Broken Harbor did not disappoint. Tana French develops unforgettable characters and plot. The performance was spot on. My one criticism: it could have used tighter editing. All in all, a great listen. I will definitely be getting all of her novels.

    Story
    "This book could be 5 hrs shorter,it gets a little"
    What would have made Broken Harbor better?

    If there was more action,even the interrogation gets boring after 3hrs of it


    Has Broken Harbor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No but I want a refund, I kept waiting for something to happen


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    If there was more mystery before the conclusion even if the detective went down the wrong path a few times,it spends hours in the interrogation and never leaves


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Wasting my time

    "Great Read!"

    Although disappointed that prior characters from books 1 thru 3 didn't show an appearance, I still enjoyed this Murder Mystery. It really is a stand alone book, you do not need to read the prior 3 in the series, but they are well worth it. Broken Harbor has more of a connection to Det Kennedy than you might think. When a young family is murdered, 2 sleeping children smothered and both parents knifed with only the mother surving; Kennedy and his newbie detective partner unravel the clues to find their killer.

    Always a good read. Narration was excellent. Story stalled in middle just a bit but not for long. Would recommend.

    "This novel seemed to me to be "running in place""

    I couldn't finish this tale. The reader was very good; the plot sounded interesting but it moved at a snail's pace to me.
