Summary:

The bestselling novel by Tana French, author of The Witch Elm, is “required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting” (The New York Times). She “inspires cultic devotion in readers” (The New Yorker) and is “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post).

“Atmospheric and unputdownable.” —People 


In bestselling author Tana French’s newest “tour de force” (The New York Times), being on the Murder Squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed it would be. Her partner, Stephen Moran, is the only person who seems glad she’s there. The rest of her working life is a stream of thankless cases, vicious pranks, and harassment. Antoinette is savagely tough, but she’s getting close to the breaking point. 
 
Their new case looks like yet another by-the-numbers lovers’ quarrel gone bad. Aislinn Murray is blond, pretty, groomed-to-a-shine, and dead in her catalog-perfect living room, next to a table set for a romantic dinner. There’s nothing unusual about her—except that Antoinette’s seen her somewhere before.
 
And that her death won’t stay in its neat by-numbers box. Other detectives are trying to push Antoinette and Steve into arresting Aislinn’s boyfriend, fast. There’s a shadowy figure at the end of Antoinetteʼs road. Aislinnʼs friend is hinting that she knew Aislinn was in danger. And everything they find out about Aislinn takes her further from the glossy, passive doll she seemed to be.
 
Antoinette knows the harassment has turned her paranoid, but she can’t tell just how far gone she is. Is this case another step in the campaign to force her off the squad, or are there darker currents flowing beneath its polished surface?

    "Page turner"! From the very first word I was hooked! The narration was captivating and the characters so real, and developed. I'm disappointed it's over and look forward to possibly more cases to be solved by these two detectives. This comment really doesn't do justice to the book and the story.

  • Dale Cummings

    I loved this book and the narrator was very authentic! I was always trying to figure out what came next!

  • Berva Lorraine Hume

    I loved the book! A true mystery novel, better than most I have read lately. I have since downloaded another by the same author and it is just as good. The Irish accent was very realistic and I loved that too. Great work. I like the longer novels- makes me feel like I'm getting good bang for my bucks.

  • John Boyer

    The best mystery novel I have listened to in years. I could follow but couldn't anticipate, and didn't know what was coming until the very end. Excellent book. I listened to the 20 hours in near record time even making up excuses to drive to the grocery store in repeated trips so I could listen.

  • Karol Cooper

    More of a standard police procedural than French's other books. The plotline was a little out there, but the conclusion was satisfying and the reader provided excellent renditions of all the characters.

  • Laurie Pohl

    The narrator was excellent. Her ability to capture multiple characters and situations made my first audiobook enjoyable.

  • Danita Sistrunk

    The accent of the narrator made listening hard. The book was great, but the Irish accent was killing me.

  • Stacey Frohnapfel-Hasson

    I loved the book and the narrator! It's a great mystery. The narrator brought the lead detective to life with his Irish accent.
