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.

    "Incredibly Intelligent"

    This is one of the most intelligently written mystery novels I've ever read. The story was fascinating and extremely creative, while still being realistic, which I appreciate. I'm so impressed with the meticulous details and some items still being left to the readers imagination - that's quite difficult to pull off for a writer. I'm really enjoying Ms. French's murder series and look forward to the next book. I highly recommend her novels to anyone.

    "too long"

    It's a good story but conversations are way to long between characters. slow periods without smooth transitions.

    Story
    "Great story, one flaw in the narration that really bothered me."

    I hope Ms. O'Neil reads this, because her Irish inflections are beautiful, with a distinct voice for each main character. I lost my immersion in the story when, in the last half hour of the story, she voiced the worst imitation of an Australian I've ever heard. Please, Ms. O'Neil, apply yourself to your craft; you were brilliant for twenty hours!

    "Wow!"

    Amazing book, and the best narrator I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Thanks Tana and Heather!

    Love the outdoors and like to spirit a good book or audiobook into my pack. Live in the bush, grow much of my food and make stuff by hand.

    Story
    "Sad to say goodbye"

    I'm not usually a fan of cop stories or murder stories but Tana French's books are different. They're about the people who are the detectives, what makes them tick and how they interrelate, and over the series of Tana French's Dublin Murder squad, they've come to seem like friends. Now I've read the whole series, each delivered by a different member of the squad and each with a different slant on the team, I'm really sad that I've finished. Each book has been exciting, a page turner in its own right in terms of the murder enquiry involved, but each book has also extended my feeling of connection to this team of detectives and their relationships. Her writing style is excellent and the narrations have enhanced the experience. I hope she writes another. I have loved all the books.

    "Premise stretched credibility"

    Very well written and once you got past the unlikely scenario it was a good read. I found it overly emotional and those parts went on and on and on otherwise enjoyable.

    "Wonderful as usual but...."

    Love these novels except Tana allows the protagonist's "voice" leak into other characters. Only one character per novel should have those inferences, that conjecture, that voice.

    "I am hooked on French"

    This was the first time I have listened to Tana French. I was hooked from the first page and pulled weeds in the garden while listening to the book. Great story and a seedless garden - fir the moment.
