Book Overview

From Tana French, author of the forthcoming novel The Searcher, the 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.

Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen-year-old kid with a dream of escaping hisi 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.

   It is by far my favourite of the series
I just read it again. It is my favorite part of the series. I didn't like Frank Mackey in the past. Hard and cynical. Which he is. This is the story of how and why. It's always a fascinating process. The language, the expressions, the characterizations were instantly familiar to my mother who was a Dubliner. The unanswered questions too were. The families have tensions hidden from the kids. What could have been, the thought of the 1980's and lost love. I hated it to end. I think this is a worthy contender, right up there with Dennis Lehane and Mystic River. It would have the same atmosphere with a Dublin twist. I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Rereading made me miss it even more.
   I made it to chapter 7 before I threw in the towel. Too many f bombs.
I was able to quickly read through the novel by this author. The author is capable of writing. I can't count the number of times this novel has been described invulnerably. I lost track of what the actual story was because I was reading so fast. It's almost like it's normal for the entire Irish population to curse every time they say something. I would encourage the authors and editors to stop talking trash. We don't use foul language when we read for the stories.
This book was very boring. The mystery is a small part of it. The plot seems to focus on family relationships and the dialogue goes on and on for pages in language that is heavily laden with Irish dialect and profanity, so much so that it is almost funny. Normally, I would finish a book in about two days. I have been struggling with this one for two weeks and I don't plan on spending any more time on it.
