With the opening of the third novel, featuring the Dublin Murder Squad, Faithful Place sets nineteen year old Frank Mackey to waiting for Rosie. They are supposed to run away together to London, but this wait may be in vain.
When Frank thinks he has merely fallen for a girl who has forgotten him, his unrequited love, he leaves for Dublin instead, assuming he will never return.
Years pass and now that Frank is a detective, he returns to his old neighborhood only to find that Rosie's suitcase is left in an abandoned house. What has become of Rosie, and what is the truth about that fateful night they could have shared, so long ago?
With her pointed, yet humorous dialogue and her scathing, acerbic wit, French continues to entertain with Faithful Place.
