Jeffrey Bluhm, June 22, 2013 (view all comments by Jeffrey Bluhm)
Outstanding follow up to her debut, In The Woods. An intriguing murder mystery/detective novel with a very satisfying ending. Believable and interesting character development balanced with lyrical descriptive passages about settings, landscapes, and moods. The plot is steadily paced, neither rushed nor too slow, and there are no loose ends by the conclusion. As good a book as I've read in some time.

I loved this book! I loved Tana French's first novel, but I enjoyed this one even more. I think I liked this one better because it was all about people (whereas the first one had that supernatural mystery aspect) and what people can do to each other. I love all of her mysteries!

I was glued to this book, plenty of twists and turns and lots of mystery.

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.

Ghost Reader, January 1, 2012 (view all comments by Ghost Reader)
A "mystery" that totally transcends genre. Engaging, complicated characters, beautiful, evocative writing and an involving mystery that turns on character, not unconvincing coincidence. Clear your calendar, you will not want to stop reading -- to get to the solution, but mostly to see how the characters are impacted by the solution. Tana French has published 3 novels, all terrific; I can't wait for the 4th.

"Staff Pick" by ,

The Likeness is another masterpiece of suspense by Tana French. Reminiscent of The Secret History, this psychological thriller is wonderfully written and impeccably paced — a perfect summer read.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Edgar-winner French blurs the boundaries between victim and cop, memory and fantasy, in this stunning sequel to her debut, In the Woods. Det. Cassie Maddox, a dead ringer for Lexie Madison, whose body has been found on the outskirts of the Irish village of Glenskehy, agrees to masquerade as Lexie in a police effort to identify her murderer. Cassie journeys to Whitethorn House, the rambling mansion Lexie shared with four fellow Ph.D. students and tells the friends that she survived the attack. As she probes deeper into the close-knit group, Cassie finds herself becoming emotionally attached to the stoic Daniel, sensitive Justin, gadabout Rafe and dependable Abby. But as tensions rise in the house and in Glenskehy, Cassie must decide if the biggest threat comes from without or lurks within. French cleverly subverts the conventions of the locked room mystery, ratcheting up the tension at every turn with her multidimensional characters. Readers looking for a new name in psychological suspense need look no further than this powerful new Irish voice. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "Police procedures, psychological thrills and gothic romance beautifully woven into one stunning story."
"Review" by , "French creates remarkably complex characters while gradually unpeeling the layers of her story in this rich and insightful psychological thriller. A stunner."
"Review" by , "Suspense writing is clearly French's forte. Rather than employing cliff-hanger tactics, such as ending chapters with striking discoveries, French relies on more delicate revelations to engage readers all along."
"Review" by , "Ms. French resists genre conventions defiantly enough to have written a long, rambling book, one that is more interested in character revelations than in 'Aha!' moments about the plot....Cassie herself remains a strong enough character to sustain interest."
"Synopsis" by , French presents the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times-bestselling psychological thriller In the Woods.
