New York Times bestselling author Tana French, author of The Witch Elm, is “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post) and “inspires cultic devotion in readers” (The New Yorker).
“Required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting.” —The New York Times
Now airing as a Starz series
In the “compellingˮ (The Boston Globe) and “pitch perfectˮ (Entertainment Weekly) follow-up to Tana French’s runaway bestseller In the Woods, Cassie Maddox has transferred out of the Dublin Murder Squad—until an urgent telephone call brings her back to an eerie 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 is back undercover, to find out not only who killed this young woman, but, more importantly, who she was.
The Likeness is a supremely suspenseful story exploring the nature of identity and belonging.

Way Too Much Dialog!
All I can do is repeat the Dec. 22nd 2013 review of the book (printed, not audio) by someone called Chirpchirpchirp since it’s pretty much how I felt: “It has the consistency of a short story that had been watered down to a novel. Three out of every five sentences should have been striked!… made reading (listening) excruciating… finished out of stubborn desire to find out how it ends.”
I did love listening to Heather O’Neill read the story which was the other reason I listened to it till the end…
