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.

    "Riveting !"

    Excellent narration, adding drama and emotion to the story. The book itself is first rate, the characters interesting, the theme ( economic recession) timely, and the mystery suspenseful. It is a bit long, but Stephen Hogan's compelling narration kept me completely involved. Definitely recommended !

    "Not for me but not bad."

    This book was on sale. Being the third in the series I bought the first two also as I hate not starting a series at the beginning. Well I'll never buy a sales book out of order again. There is a lot of psychology in this series. More than I care for being more fond of the Robert Crais and Lee Child genre. I was able to semi enjoy this listen. The narrator makes the story listenable but if I was reading rather than listening I would have put it down long ago. I couldn't finish the second book in the series. Not for me, but if you like a lot of psychology in your mystery/thriller you may like these.

    "Surprised me"

    The hard part about writing reviews is that you write them in hindsight, after you've finished the book, to influence people who have not yet read the book. I would not want to turn anyone away from this book. It was interesting enough to keep me reading and I reached a part where I really thought it was pretty dumb. Then the book turned on me and renewed my faith in Tana French's ability as a writer. She truly does handle her craft rather well and I'm learning to go the distance with her and trust she'll carry the story through handsomely until the end. The narration on this was very good. I felt he handled the female voices well.

    Story
    "Tana French has outdone herself"
    Where does Broken Harbor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Quite high. Tana French is one of my favorite authors, and this book paired with Stephen Hogan's narration is superb! I never saw the end coming!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't say I have a favorite character; all characters were flawed and fractious and well-drawn.


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

    No, I haven't, but I want to get my hands on more!


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

    There were many. Tana French depicts the chaos of mental illness with realism and chilling accuracy, and while I couldn't accept some of the decisions that were made, I grew to empathize with many of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a thrillride, woven around itself again and again and again, and I loved the sheer messiness of it!

    "Love this series!"
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    What happens next!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    loved them all.


    What does Stephen Hogan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    HE keeps the listener on the edge of their seats. I feel I know each charecter personally and with one person that is not easy to accomplish.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dublin Detectives takes you there with them.


    Any additional comments?

    Tana rocks. I must admit I am an anglophile so whenever I find an author from the British Isles I have to check it out. I started with Elizabeth George, although she is not a Brit , her books are very authentic. Then I discovered Ruth Rendell and I WAS IN LOVE! Next came Minette Walters and Tana is right up there with them. I have already preordered her next Dublin series book. Brava Tana

    "Great story and performance....best in series"

    After listening to Faithful Place, I was hesitant to get this book because I didn't think I would like the character of Scorcher Kennedy. Recall that in Faithful Place Frank Mackey was the hero and Kennedy was the jerk out to get him. But French does a great job making Kennedy real and likeable in his own way.

    Good plot with several twists and turns, great characters, and wonderful performance.

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

    It was definitely a page turner. The perfect world shattered by an in ability to cope with the awful reality of hard economic times.


    What does Stephen Hogan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His narration brought the characters alive.


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

    No. The entire book was gripping


    Any additional comments?

    I've read all of the French's books but this was one I could not stop listening to - sitting in the garage because it wasn't a good place in the book to turn off the car - I call that captivating.

    "Great Addition to the Series"

    French has an interesting concept; bringing in a secondary character from a previous novel and making them the main character in a new book. And she doesn't always pick the most obvious character. Her stories always have so many layers and reading them (or listening) is a pleasure. My only complaint is the wait it too long between books! I'll be buying the next one as soon as it's available.

    "Really good story telling"

    The thing about French's writing is that I read her work just for the characters. The mystery and its resolution is always secondary. Broken Harbor is no exception. It is a fine story,well-told, about interesting noble but clawed characters. Highly recommended.

    "Great story, very believable characters"

    This is a murder mystery but transcends the genre by exploring family relationships. The reader is very good at providing the necessary accents that add to the story, making the story more enjoyable than reading it would have.
