The Likeness by Tana French
The Likeness

Northwest Tam, January 19, 2012

This is a "detective novel" in the tradition of Josephine Tey's "Daughter of Time," where the crime is secondary to the characters. It is within the wants, needs, quirks, and, fundamentally, hearts of the characters that we are given the mystery and resolution. I read this book, set it down for three days, then picked it up to read again. It is achingly haunting, oddly compelling, and completely mesmerizing.
