From Tana French, "the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years" (The Washington Post), the bestseller called "the most stunning of her books" (The New York Times) and a finalist for the Edgar Award. Don't miss her newest, The Trespasser, now available.

Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen-year-old kid with a dream of escaping his family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, is going home whether he likes it or not.

Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly-and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a very suspense filled noval!! It kept you guessing and your heart was right in the middle of the book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/3/2014

    " What a great trip to Dublin. The language and the characters are, well, you know yourself. The mystery grounded in first love and dysfunctional family was well done. "

    " Great characters, terrific setting, believable and real unfolding of events. Mackey is a wonderful character, fresh and raw and real and consistent in an honest and hard way. One could fall a little bit in love with him on the page. And how he/French speaks about and inhabits the different kinds of love-- for Rosie, for Holly, for Liv, all fierce and stunning and part of life-- makes you recognize and remember each emotion. Even if the ending felt a little bit like an ending by accident, French is a dynamite writer who carried me away with all the pieces that matter-- heartbeat, heartache, and heart song. "

    " Sorry, didn't like it at all (4/11) "

    " very enjoyable mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maegan | 1/18/2014

    " After reading Broken Harbor I was confused as to the popularity of French's writing. After the urging from another reader I decided to give French another try. Admittedly I did like this book better. French does know how to create engaging stories and characters and interesting mysteries. However, while her characters are rich with motive and heartbreaking personal stories I still have issue with how French's characters interact with each other. All her characters have incredibly linear conversations where intention, motive and action are all laid out in incredible detail. I appreciate that she is trying to be true to human nature and the complicated dynamics of dysfunctional families. But in reality dysfunctional families don't communicate with each other with such honesty. I appreciated the interior life of Francis, but as soon as he started receiving the abruptly honest explanations from his family I had a hard time accepting the story. "

    " It was engaging, had to keep reading to see 'who done it', but it was more a commentary on the life of the Irish on the other side of the track - not the 'lace curtain'. Takes place in Dublin and the Irish idioms need some getting used to. For those of Irish descent, it brings us home to our ancestors, and I wonder what it was like for them. I hope it was better that the Mackey family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 1/13/2014

    " Tana French is a very smart writer. I love her approach to class issues in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 1/7/2014

    " I love this book. It's about the Murder Squad in Dublin, Ireland. Since I've been there it was cool to know some of the landmarks mentioned and I understood alot of the lingo. This is the 3rd book Tana French book about the Murder Squad. Each book focuses on a different main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/13/2013

    " Tana French just my be my new favorite author! This is the 3rd book I've read by her and each one was better than the last (and the first I read was a 5-star rated book)! Love the style of writing and the depth of her characters. Can't wait to read her next book(s). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rina | 12/10/2013

    " a little too long but good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lautenbacher | 12/7/2013

    " Another great mystery by Tana French. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loren | 11/20/2013

    " Possibly my favorite of the four Tana French mysteries so far. Deeply real feeling, and a pleasure to feel you are entering the Dublin she's created in description and colloquial dialogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thyra | 11/7/2013

    " Her books are top-notch. This one is no exception, unfortunately, I sort of figured out what I thought was going on quite early in the book. I don't think it was obvious, but I do think if you've read enough of her books, it might be evident. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 7/25/2013

    " I like Tana French.. a lot. but I haven't liked anything by her as much as In the Woods.. I'm hoping Broken Harbour will top the first in this series though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kym | 7/24/2013

    " Always brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandy | 2/6/2013

    " Another great French book!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 8/4/2012

    " First Tana French book I have read. Absolutely loved it. What she does with the characters is amazing. I will definitely read the other three. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate | 5/19/2012

    " This was a well written book that I never really got in to. Unlike Tana French's previous two books this one was not an edge of the seat page turner. Not that it has to be this way, it was just that I wanted it to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 4/27/2012

    " Really more like 3.5 stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 2/20/2012

    " Started out interesting and then it became slow drudgery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 9/25/2011

    " Everything Tana French has done is perfect. This book has layers of subtlety that start to appear at the end. Also, she is very faithful to her characters, and they are so consistent, so much so that it kind of surprises you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 6/5/2011

    " Another amazing mystery from Tana French. Her mysteries have so many layers and delve into relationships in a way that leaves you thinking about the story long after it ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 5/23/2011

    " It was good enough to read all the way through but I could easily have walked away and not cared "who done it." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NuevoRain | 5/23/2011

    " I love her characterizations. Impossible to believe that Frank came from this home. Mystery was not too mysterious, but rather in love with Frank by the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 5/22/2011

    " She can't write a bad book. Bring me more!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trissa | 5/20/2011

    " Fine, ok. Hated it at the end because I knew Shay did it. Really good fiction considering it's a mystery. Cliche of detective was like the dog being the hero in "dancing in the Rain." It was cheezy but you loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 5/19/2011

    " LOVED IT! This one's her best yet! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 5/18/2011

    " i have enjoyed all three of her books. I liked the setting of Ireland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathyg | 5/18/2011

    " Thought this was good questionable language. Had me wanting to continue reading. "

    " I couldn't finish it, did not like at all. "

    " Love how her writing makes you feel like you're in Ireland "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carli | 5/11/2011

    " The third and most recent of French's novels, I found this one satisfying but very sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami | 5/10/2011

    " This is a murder mystery, but so much more. I loved it. This is the 2nd book of hers that I've read - also read The Likeness a few years ago. I love the way she weaves her stories together and how rich all the characters are. Great author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya | 5/10/2011

    " I don't really like murder mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 5/9/2011

    " I just could not get into this book like I did the other 2. I didn't like how the other 2 books didn't come into play ever (like they did in The Likeness) and that I knew who did it from the very beginning. Still entertaining. "
