Staff Reviews


Tana French’s psychological crime novels are over the top and I do believe that The Likeness is her best one.
Taking place in Dublin, Ireland, Cassie Maddox returns and goes back undercover to solve an unrealistic  murder.  She comes face-to-face with her double– the dead body does in fact mirror her and an identity that she and her previous boss had created during her last undercover operation.  
Seemingly farfetched, the characters become all too real as she  and  her fellow investigation  partners search for justice for both the murdered girl and herself  before she becomes the next victim. Saying anything else just may give some clues away.

I love to read because of books like this one!! WOW!
