Publisher Description

Best Book of 2020
New York Times |NPR | New York Post

"This hushed suspense tale about thwarted dreams of escape may be her best one yet . . . Its own kind of masterpiece." --Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

"A new Tana French is always cause for celebration . . . Read it once for the plot; read it again for the beauty and subtlety of French's writing." --Sarah Lyall, The New York Times

Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.

"One of the greatest crime novelists writing today" (Vox) weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking how to tell right from wrong in a world where neither is simple, and what we stake on that decision.

Solid 4 stars

Brings the reader to a locale they’ve likely never been before.

All the characters are well drawn, the plot hangs together, and the outcome is realistic.

It was my first Tana French but not my last.

Just OK

I love this author and liked parts of this book. The ending was unsatisfying and seemed lazy vs the mystery being figured out. I’ll read her again. There’s a huge section in the middle that serves no purpose and was annoying.

Unlike any mystery I've ever read.

Unlike any other mystery I've ever read. Total suspense but you won't realize it until the end.
While there are specific clues, the whole story from the retired cop's view is the main clue. Good luck!
Excellent and unique writer.
