Every holiday needs a good crime novel and French's skilful thrillers are tailor-made to terrify
If you're only going to buy one thriller this year, let it be Tana French's Faithful Place. Searing, utterly Dub, and very funny . . . Tana French, Dublin author of international hits . . . is a wonder. Just don't plan anything if you pick this up; you won't be able to put it down.
A gripping, literate thriller laced with black humour
She lifts the lid on Dublin and offers a haunting portrait of a man belatedly dealing with his demons
French copperfastens her reputation as an author of exceptional insight and talent.
Gripping. Tana French's third novel hooks the reader from the outset; the characters are masterfully drawn, and the author's ear for Dublin dialogue is pitch-perfect.
Charming - will leave readers begging for a sequel
Even more gripping than her last two. A truly amazing novel - so brilliant on dysfunctional family dynamics, with characters so real that you can hardly believe someone's made them up.
