Overview

The “expertly rendered, gripping new novel” (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)-from the bestselling author of In the Woods and The Likeness.

Tana French’s In the Woods and The Likeness captivated readers by introducing them to her unique, character-driven style. Her singular skill at creating richly drawn, complex worlds makes her novels not mere whodunits but brilliant and satisfying novels about memory, identity, loss, and what defines us as humans. With Faithful Place, the highly praised third novel about the Dublin Murder squad, French takes readers into the mind of Frank Mackey, the hotheaded mastermind of The Likeness, as he wrestles with his own past and the family, the lover, and the neighborhood he thought he’d left behind for good.

Tana French’s newest novel, The Secret Place, will be published by Viking on September 2nd, 2014.

Praise

“[French] revisits, evocatively and lyrically, themes she’s used before: love, loss, memory, murder, and life in modern Ireland. French’s writing remains brilliant, and her dialogue is sharp, often lacerating, and sometimes mordantly funny. Faithful Place is her best book yet.”
-Booklist (starred)

“The charming narrative will leave readers begging for a sequel.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Part Raymond Chandler, part Roddy Doyle, crime fiction’s rising star takes it into mesmerizing new territory . . . French’s hypnotic storytelling remains in full force in this novel . . . Faithful Place is wrenching to a degree that detective fiction rarely achieves . . . French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it’s only growing more miraculous with every book.”
