This had kind of a plodding start and took me a little while to get into. But by the end I was really enjoying it, so it does get better once things get going. Usually the narrator is my favorite character, but I'm still not terribly fond of this one. Halfway through I was thinking 'I'm not sure he should even be allowed to be a cop!' lol. But he wasn't horrible, just unlikable for me and quite flawed. I often like flawed characters, but his just don't align with my tolerances I guess. I liked some of the other characters though, so I still felt like I had skin in the game. The main mystery was decent. I'm interested to read the next book, though it's especially difficult to predict where things might go from here. (It looks like it mostly follows the police *department* rather than specific characters, but some do carry over).

(On the audio version, the main character is written to have an English accent, fair play, but there's not much of an Irish accent for any of the other characters either. For a story taking place entirely in Ireland, I'm surprised that wasn't made more of a priority. The reader did a decent job otherwise, and it looks like the rest of the series is read by a variety of narrators, so their accent abilities will probably just vary.) ( )

Wow, this one was a great surprise. I have a real issue with reading books set in Ireland, mainly because I can never figure out how to pronounce Irish words. I mean, Siobhan is pronounced "Shah-von"? Really? So my brain automatically stops when I get to Irish place names or what have you, and it's very unsettling. I read somewhere that this is the curse of the child who learns to read too early--we spend the rest of our lives saying "Horse Doovers" in stead of "or derves."

Anyway, after the first chapter I pretty much forgot that this was "Irish fiction" because it was just such un-put-downable crime fiction. The characters were amazing and the mystery was unsettling and twisty. The author's descriptions of the woods were particularly great, and there was some really nicely written foreshadowing which I always am impressed with, since so often the author blows it for me and ruins the ending in chapter one. Tana French didn't do this, the reveal was pretty masterful and I'm kind of jealous of her mad writing skills.

So, yes, 4 stars. Maybe 4 and 1/2. Looking forward to others in the series. ( )

Well put together and kept me up much later than I would usually read. ( )

3.75 stars I guess. I definitely liked this more than [b:In a Dark, Dark Wood|27834600|In a Dark, Dark Wood|Ruth Ware|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1523543089l/27834600._SY75_.jpg|42905101] which I compare both because of the title and the genre.

The back of this book says that it's a thriller which I kind of disagree with. There were intense moments, but essentially this was just a police procedural and the plot rarely deviates from the investigation. The most thriller-like plot thread was the thing you find out right away where our main character Adam Ryan and his two friends went missing in the woods as children and he was the only one to make it back out. We don't even get this plot really wrapped up, at least not in this book. In fact, the book doesn't really dive into this as much as I expected. It really is only discussed in connection to the current case I knew there was a police element based on the name of the series but I didn't realize it completely dominated the plot which isn't great because I don't like procedural that much.

I think the strength of this novel is the characters and the character relationship. I think the dynamic between Ryan and Cassie Maddox was very strong, especially at the beginning of the novel. I think French does a great job writing Ryan as a character that professes to be uncomfortable with the male environment of the police station but is still affected by that dynamic and falls into some stereotypes because of that. I would have liked to learn more about Cassie but this book is from Ryan's perspective and believe the next book is about Cassie so I assume we will learn more later. I did really dislike the plot point of Cassie and Ryan being really close friends until they end up kissing and then he freaks out and really hurt her. I was impressed with the book having them be just really close friends so when this happened I was really disappointed and it felt needlessly cliche.

The mystery itself was fine but it just dealt with a topic that I really don't care for in mysteries. I really don't like stories about psychopaths. I just find them so frustrating so I don't like that this plot went in that direction. I also don't like the fact that the reason Rosalind got away with things was because no one was smart enough to double check info. It's hard to discuss any parts of this without giving things away but I will say that the issues I had with the mystery had to do with things I personally don't like so other people might not have a problem with it. I also wish I knew that this was a police procedural before going in.

I think I will continue with this series because I have heard good things about The Likeness and it's more about Cassie who I liked way more than Ryan and I think it's not as much as a procedural. I think people that like this type of mystery would like this! ( )

When a 12-year-old girl is found murdered on an excavation site in a Dublin suburb, Detectives Rob Ryan and Cassie Maddox are assigned to the case. However, similarities to an old cold case that Ryan has some ties to as a child adds an extra dimension to this murder, as well as raising more questions.

I've not read Tana French before, but it looks like I'm about to be sucked wholeheartedly into her Dublin Murder Squad series. I enjoyed this a lot, both the plot and character development. I loved the dynamics between Rob and Cassie -- a bantering, teasing brother and sister-type relationship, but with some underlying sexual tension. The plot was well-constructed and French did a good job pulling the reader into both the past and present investigations. I loved it all...until the end. I realize books shouldn't all have tidy, wrapped-up endings, but this one really left me wanting more, as well as giving me a feeling of disappointment in how one particular person's character disintegrated in my mind. But again, that's also a sign of a good story and good writing -- when the author can pull those emotions to the surface. Based on my experience with this book, I'd say Tana French is one of the better contemporary mystery/crime writers out there. And I'm off to read book #2! ( )

Although she overburdens the traditional police-procedural form with the weight of romance, psychological suspense, social history and mythic legend, she sets a vivid scene for her complex characters, who seem entirely capable of doing the unexpected. Drawn by the grim nature of her plot and the lyrical ferocity of her writing, even smart people who should know better will be able to lose themselves in these dark woods.

What I am telling you, before you begin my story, is this--two things: I crave truth. And I lie.
We think about mortality so little, these days, except to flail hysterically at it with trendy forms of exercise and high-fiber cereals and nicotine patches.
To my mind the defining characteristic of our era is spin, everything tailored to vanishing point by market research, brands and bands manufactured to precise specifications; we are so used to things transmuting into whatever we would like them to be that it comes as a profound outrage to encounter death, stubbornly unspinnable, only and immutably itself.
"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence," he told me reproachfully.
Maybe she, like me, would have loved the tiny details and the inconveniences even more dearly than the wonders, because they are the things that prove you belong.
