Format: Paperback
I've been an avid fan of Tana French since her chilling debut novel, In the Woods, a poetically written murder mystery that combined police procedural with psychological thriller. She writes evocatively about solitary adults afflicted by damaged childhoods. Her novels go beyond the murder cases and weave layered tales about memories, the search for identity, the healing of broken families, and the social and economic issues of contemporary Ireland. Broken Harbor will satisfy old enthusiasts and hook new ones alike with its complex characters, detailed plot, moving themes and fresh, taut dialogue.

The narrator is Detective Mick 'Scorcher' Kennedy, a tough, flinty cop introduced in French's third novel, Faithful Place. Here he is fleshed out as a media-savvy and taciturn (and surprisingly sensitive) crackerjack detective with a reputation to fix. He is assigned to a murder that occurred in the affluent but half-abandoned suburb of Brianstown, which used to be called Broken Harbor. This is sure to be a high profile case: the fatal stabbing of a family man, Patrick Spain, and the suffocation of his two young children. His wife, Jenny, a victim of multiple knife wounds, is in critical condition at the hospital's intensive care unit.

Kennedy has a resonant family history with BH, reaching back to childhood summer vacations with his mother (who died years ago) and two sisters. One sister, Dina, is emotionally unstable, volatile and flammable, and pops in unannounced at inconvenient times. Kennedy is protective of Dina, but her labile moods and confrontational behaviors are particularly vexing to him during this investigation.

I liked this novel, it wasn't a page turner but Broken Harbour is a good, solid read. It is a large novel,average hardcover size and 500+ pages but the pace never lagged and it kept my interest.I have not read many of Tana French's novels, truth told this is only my second,but will not be my last. The novel is well written, it has compelling characters, an easy to follow plot and a few well place red herrings. You have the main character, Mick Kennedy,a homicide detective.He seems to be harder on himself than the murderer(s) he is trying to catch.His story is the main thread in the novel.The plot seems to spin off him and his relationships. You will not find car chases, gun battles, or any of that in this novel.What you will find in Broken Harbour is an entertaining, classic detective story.

Fantastic effort on Tana French's part. I don't often read thrillers, but this was a riveting read of "whodunit" right to the end. A book I wished I'd never read so I could read it again! The perfect book to take on a trip and block out the world. The twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat. What a great author, incorporating the humour and the sorrow of the Irish set in what was a promising suburb that has been broken down by recession.

Detective with imperfections.

Strange homicide.

Not exactly original premises...but, I enjoyed the book.

Kudos to Tana French!

A movie contract has to be on her agenda.
