Publisher's Summary

As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children. He is gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox (his partner and closest friend) find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

    "British accent for Irish voices?"

    Hearing obviously Irish slang in a British accent was jarring. Otherwise a really terrific read.

    I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.

    "All aspects well-written"

    I liked all aspects of this book: characters, procedure, relationships. The main character is not really likeable, but I found that to be realistic and added to the story. Very well done and surprisingly enjoyable to listen to.

    "Okay"

    In my opinion this book ran on and on with too much description. It did not clear up the story of the two lost friends which was very disappointing. Left me hanging which I hate!

    Story
    "VERY Disappointed"

    If I wanted "reality" where there is no resolution to mysteries, I wouldn't read books or listen to audiobooks. I would read the newspaper or watch the news. It was well written, well read by the narrator. However, not the kind of book for me. If you are aggravated by an author teasing you with the resolution and then leaves you without answers, this is not the book for you. Unfortunately, I will not continue with the series.

    "Creepy and compelling mystery"

    Compelling story with a main character one wants to shake. Excellent narrator for main voice though I wish he could have done Irish accents for the others.

    "Great story"

    Loved the intrigue without any porno stops
    I enjoy the puzzle and the surprise finish. Flashbacks added to the blanks.

    "Enthralling tale, disappointing conclusion"

    Great story all the way through, but I like the ending was a cop out. Like the author never knew the answer either.

    "Surprisingly satisfying read"

    The narrator's accent was what I looked forward to every time I could listen. He did a great job of using different voices. The story kept my interest the whole time. Very well done.

    "Wonderful!"

    What a fantastic writer this was the first time I've read her work. I can hardly wait to read the next books. Tana French is very poetic.
