The 6th book in the Dublin Murder Squad series is the best I’ve read so far.
Tana French is an excellent writer. This is a book that should be studied by Murder Mystery authors.
“Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years.”
—The Washington Post
Antoinette Conway is intense, tough, complex, paranoid, unlikable-in-any-way. A protagonist that not even her mother sympathizes with.
She’s the only female detective on the Dublin squad, dealing with the cruel practical jokes of colleagues who want to see her quit.
Antoinette and her inexperienced partner are assigned an easy solve — boyfriend murders girlfriend.
Top brass expects them to close the case quickly. … But it’s a much more complicated story than meets the eye.
