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.

Tana French is Excellent

At her best, Tana French’s work is genius. This book isn’t up to Into the Woods or Broken Harbor, but the descriptions are truly fine, and there are some nice twists and turns. The plot didn’t always resonate with me, but I’m certainly going to read the sequel, and I recommend French’s work most highly.

Depth of character and setting

A personal and devastating mystery. The characters and the village they live in are woven into a beautiful, heartbreaking, and rich story.
