If you enjoyed Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ series (or are still waiting for your copy!) you will be happy to discover Irish author Tana French.
Well written and complicated French’s novels are as much about the crime being investigated as they are about the Detectives trying to solve them.
In ‘The Likeness’ undercover cop Cassie Maddox bears an uncanny resemblance to a murder victim, this ‘likeness’ enables Detective Maddox to impersonate the victim in hopes of uncovering who wanted her dead. Erie and suspenseful the reader is constantly on edge, expecting at any moment that the murderer will discover the imposter.
In ‘Faithful Place Detective Sergeant Frank Macky (who first appeared in ‘The Likeness’) is involved with a murder case that literally brings his personal skeletons out of the closet.
‘In the Woods’ features Detective Maddox along with her partner Rob Ryan whose childhood experience of abduction and murder comes back to life in a fresh but very familiar case.
Family relationships, past and present come together in all of French’s novels. French’s characters are complex and well developed, the reader enjoys a truly three dimensional portrait of the personal and psychological side of life on the Murder Squad.
