The "expertly rendered, gripping new novel" (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)-from the bestselling author of In the Woods and The Likeness.
Tana French's In the Woods and The Likeness captivated readers by introducing them to her unique, character-driven style. Her singular skill at creating richly drawn, complex worlds makes her novels not mere whodunits but brilliant and satisfying novels about memory, identity, loss, and what defines us as humans. With Faithful Place, the highly praised third novel about the Dublin Murder squad, French takes readers into the mind of Frank Mackey, the hotheaded mastermind of The Likeness, as he wrestles with his own past and the family, the lover, and the neighborhood he thought he'd left behind for good.
Tanya French delivers another spectacular thriller with FAITHFUL PLACE, her third novel. More than 20 years ago Frank Mackey left home. His plan was to run away with his girlfriend, Rosie, but she didn't show up at their appointed meeting place and he figured she'd changed her mind. Frank left anyway, moving away from his rough Dublin neighborhood, starting over, and becoming a cop. Now news surfaces indicating that Rosie didn't just change her mind...that something much worse happened. Frank wants to discover the truth behind Rosie's disappearance, but that means he must return to the city he left in the dust, to the people he turned his back on. He must look his dysfunctional family in the eye and take on some of Dublin's toughest individuals. But Frank is on a mission, and with French at the helm, readers won't want to miss a beat of his suspenseful homecoming. Selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 100 Book.
