Publisher Description

From Tana French, author of The Witch Elm, “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post), the bestseller called “the most stunning of her books” (The New York Times) and a finalist for the Edgar Award. 

Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen-year-old kid with a dream of escaping hisi family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, is going home whether he likes it or not.

Excellent Writing

I am thoroughly enjoying this series; the author is far more talented than the average mystery writer. She has occasional lapses in the “suspension of disbelief” department, but otherwise, the stories are wonderfully engaging.

Faithful Place

Blah blah blah... Once you read the first tedious chapters you can guess who the killer is. What is supposed to be charming Irish neighborhood memories is boring, repetitive background detail.
If you want a well written novel involving family conflict read "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck.

Review

Found it to be a very entertaining, but did not keep intensely intrigued like the previous books. I just fall in love with her writing, but this one is quite predictable.
