Product Description

Review

An eerie thriller, perfect for holidays―Sunday World

Skilfully written . . . French has a brilliant ear for dialogue . . . in the best tradition of classic crime writers, such as P D James and Ruth Rendell, her characters are fully-rounded people and she is able to layer plots and storylines with a mastery that belies the fact that it is only her second book.―Sunday Independent, Dublin

French's second foray into the dark world of psychological crime more than proves she's the real deal―Daily Mirror

Creepily melding elements of Donna Tartt's "The Secret History" . . . THE LIKENESS by Tana French, seduces from the start . . . A nifty tale of desire for belonging, as well as a cool thriller―Time Out

Beautifully written and elegantly descriptive, this is a true literary detective novel rather than a whodunnit―Irish Mail on Sunday

An intricate and edgy top-notch psychological thriller.―Woman & Home --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

After I read "into the woods" I could not WAIT for more books from Tana French.

This one is a delight. Complex, compelling, hilarious and poignant, all at once.

Could not put it down.

This novel did not hold my interest throughout. I chose The LIkeness as I had read and enjoyed Tana French's debut novel, In The Woods, and this had piqued my interest to read more of her work.
The Likeness plot is weak and not very believable in my opinion. The novel is written in the first person but there is not enough happening to this character to sustain interest. The dialogue among the various characters is repetitive and, over time, this became boring.
However,I will try another of her novels, Broken Harbour, based on my positive experience with her debut novel.

I've read every one of Tana French's books and each one pulls me into the story quickly and completely.

The Likeness is my favourite thus far, in part because it allowed me to spend more time with a wonderful and intriguing character from In the Woods.

A moody, twisty mystery at its best, I highly recommend The Likeness.

Format: Paperback
Detective Cassie Maddox goes undercover to find the killer of a young woman who in life was her body double. This is a taut pyschological thriller taking place in Dublin and a small village in the county of Wicklow. The London Times described this book as mesmerizing and it is a fabulous read. The Likeness is a cut above your average thriller. It is contemporary Irish fiction at it's best.
Ms Woods wrote an earlier book, In the Woods, which won the Edgar Prize in 2008.

A mystery story that centres on a complex relationships between university students. The plot develops slowly but is necessary due to the need for the police woman to understand the issues that led to the murder. Worth hanging in there.

The best piece of fiction since "gone girl". Beautifully written and intelligent. Can't wait to read more of her books.
