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.

    "Best of the three"

    Gorgeous language, an inventive plot, and a believable mystery. Better writing than In the Woods and a much better character study of the five friends than the trite dysfunctional family of Faithful Place. The other books are very good--this one is sensational!

    "Mesmerizing, complex, real"

    I loved this book, the narrator, the plot, the writing, the characters. It was as good as the first one,In The Woods. I highly recommend it. The plot complexity, the imagery, the characters all combine to make a fascinating story that I had to finish. I wonder if Tana French will write another. I hope so.

    "Love Tana French"

    Ms French is my new favorite author. Her books have great plots, great character development, twists and turns. I like the reader best from Faithful Place - he was awesome! If you like a good psychological thriller than her books are for you.

    "Not as good"

    I really liked "The Woods," which should be read first. I had to suspend disbelief too much in this book -- the main character can act like a B horror movie protagonist.

    However, the book is fairly intelligent and entertaining and I'd recommend it.

    "I loved this one!"

    This is a sequel to "In the Woods" I picked this first as I have trouble listening to male narrators do female voices. So far I have not found one who does not make all the female voices sound the same, and none in character.
    However, I liked this one so much, I just ordered the other.
    The narrator here is wonderful, and the complexities of all the characters unfolds beautifully.
    Now that I have finished it, the characters as well as the authoress are still developing in my mind.

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    "Tedious"

    I know many people love this series but I could not connect to the main character. After tedious hours of descriptions that had nothing to do with the story whatsoever I became frustrated but I kept reading because it was a buddy read. There is a story but it moved very slowly and in the end it did not address the elephant in the room. I have very much enjoyed some of Tana French's other books but I will not be continuing with this series.

    "Excellent"

    The Likeness is great, it kept me guessing and captured chapter after chapter just like "In the Woods". I hope Audible's customer service comes up with a way to warning me if Tana French comes up with another sequel. O'Neil is an great too. A must have.

    "Fun Listen"

    OK, admittedly, the story isn't very believable, but I liked this story. I loved the narrator's accent, and Ms. French paints a lovely world with words. I liked this story enough to recommend it. Cheers!

    Story
    "Trivial story hardly worth the effort."
    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Heather O'Neill?

    I am done.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Informant


    Have you listened to any of Heather O'Neill???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she does well.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like the detectives, but the story is so trivial I cannot understand why such an undertaking by the police would ever take place.

    Story
    "Long and drawn out story."

    Where did all the 5 star reviews come from?? I have never been so bored with a story. I want to return it, but thankfully got this one on sale. The author could have made this a lot better if she cut it in half. Way too much useless filler/garble inserted into a scene when your waiting for something to happen with one of the storylines. I kept thinking, "I listened 30 minutes for that?" Nothing happens for hours, but boredom waiting for an OH WOW or whats next?
    Awful Awful Awful. I'm so disappointed I already bought the next one by Tana French and I so hope it's much better than this one.
    The Narrator was excellant. Whew!
