Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Tana French:
"has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting" (The New York Times) "is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years" (The Washington Post), "inspires cultic devotion in readers...most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming." (The New Yorker)

Look out for Tana French's newest novel, The Trespasser, available now

In the "compelling" and "pitch perfect" follow up to Tana French's runaway best seller In the Woods, it's six months later and Cassie Maddox has transferred out of the Dublin Murder squad. But an urgent telephone call beckons Cassie to a grisly crime scene. The victim looks exactly like Cassie and carries ID identifying herself as Alexandra Madison, an alias Cassie once used as an undercover cop. Suddenly, Cassie must discover not only who killed this girl, but, more importantly, who is this girl?

"This is a re-issue of a great book.

As I listened to The Likeness, I realized I had listened to it before. And lo and behold it was in my library from a several years ago. Tho I am am still enjoying it I do think that Amazon should be up front about this being a re-issue. That being said it is worth a second listen.

Captured by this book.

I listen to several books a week and have for years. I don’t remember one that pulled me is as The Likeness did. Every free minute I had I listened and the end of the book came too soon.

I would recommend the book to someone who likes to envision the setting of a book. The house and the garden, the family within the house, imperfect and fragile, were believable. The character for whom money was the most important thing was believable.

Well worth reading.

Good but not mind blowing

In the first book, I couldn't stop listening. This second book I stopped listening for quite a while. It took me several months to start listening again. I'm not sure why but, maybe because it wasn't as gripping as the first, maybe it was the narrator I'm not quite sure. I finally finished it last week. I liked it but it could have been better. The characters were not as vivid as they were in the first book. I still consider it a good read but I was a little disappointed because the first book, in my opinion, was extraordinarily good.

A giant step forward

This is French's 2nd in her Dublin Murder Squad series, and where she made some typical freshman misteps in her first outing, all that is past by this one. Great characterizations, wonderful willingness to avoid the typical reductiveness of the genre. A great ear for dialogue, and an extremely able hand at presenting characters from either gender with authority. She will continue to deliver well crafted, bitter sweet and humane mysteries from here on out.

Unbelievable

Loved the character. Love the narrative voice. Have read and loved all of Tana French's series ....even more in audible than on the page. But find the situation central to the plot of The Likeness (which precedes most of the others published so far) required more suspension of disbelief than I can muster.

Compelling first person narrative of undercover work

Some of the responses of this female cop to her undercover milieu, that is, the people and situations she is forced to adopt as her own, are a little hard to believe, but the prose is sufficiently compelling and involving that you can sort of go with it. I do like the way this series sort of chains one novel to the next by developing the backstory of someone who is a secondary character in the novel you first read. And I will gladly read the next one to find out about the guy who was running the operation this time.

Little drawn out but held my interest

I have been a huge Tana French fan since I listened to Faithful Place. This story was a little drawn out, but it held my interest. I loved listening to this book while I was knitting. The characters were interesting and the narration was excellent.
