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.

    "Slow start, strong finish..."

    It took a while to link to previous story and understand what was happening.... But once I did, it was a strong readM

    "Good story but pretty implausible"

    It was a good mystery but the premise seemed pretty much impossible to occur. Once you accept that, it's a good story.

    I like to read, but I am too often too tired. Audiobooks give me the chance to listen to stories on my way to work or on my break.

    Story
    "Worth reading, but believability must be suspended"
    What did you love best about The Likeness?

    The storyline was unique and I love listening to the Irish accents.


    What other book might you compare The Likeness to and why?

    I can't think of another book to compare it to....


    Which character – as performed by Heather O'Neill – was your favorite?

    Cassie was my favorite. She was very brave to take on that particular assignment given the risk of not knowing who the killer was.


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

    I found the premise of the storyline hard to believe. I don't want to spoil it for readers, though, so I don't want to give too much away. However, I don't believe Cassie, or any other undercover Police officer, could have gotten away with this level of deception. I kept waiting to discover that Lexie and Cassie were long-separated twin sisters!


    Any additional comments?

    This was an enjoyable read that I recommend. I enjoyed Tana French's first book, In the Woods, as well, and will certainly continue on in the series.

    Story
    "Shockingly Unbelievable"
    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Heather O'Neill?

    Tana French writes beautifully but even that is not enough to save an impossible premiss. I have so many books to read, I dont know if I will return this way again.


    What was most disappointing about Tana French’s story?

    Spoiler Alert. Besides the plodding pace of this story the very thought that two people would look, sound and act identically enough to fool even close friends was simply bizarre.<br/>I couldn't finish the story, so even if she somehow ties it all together in the end.. a bad dream?? I'll never know, and I don't care.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really do appreciate Tana French's mastery of the language but couldn't get past the silly story line. The narrator did a fine job.

    "Brilliant couldn't stop listening"

    Brilliantly read intriguing story. Stands alone from In The Woods the first of the series. Can't wait to read the rest of the series

    "Well told story."

    Tana French has told an interesting story with believable characters. The plot is well developed and the performance is excellent. I hope to find more of her works as enjoyable.

    "Long, lovely tale"

    I bought this the day that I finished In The Woods, though I liked the first book better, I think it is because that one pulled such an emotional response. This book made me love Cassie, justin, Rafe, Abby and Daniel. I, like Cassie, became enchanted by their simple life and felt connected to them, invested in what happened to them. The Narrator was brilliant. I knew who was speaking simply by her voice. I could listen to her speaking as Daniel all day long!
