What other readers are saying about this title:
AnneCP said:
Detective Cassie Maddox, now working in the Domestic Violence unit, is pulled back to her undercover roots when a murdered woman is found who bears an eerie resemblance to Cassie and, worse, a woman who was using one of Cassie’s aliases from years back. Like her brilliant In the Woods, French’s The Likenes is a slow-moving, satisfying read that creates atmosphere through tiny revelations. It is a pleasure to sit down with and explore over an extended period of time, right up to its nail-biting conclusion.

Tana French follows up her brilliant In the Woods with this equally compelling and gripping suspense novel. This author has an extraordinary ability to reveal layers about her protagonist while connecting them to the complexity of the mystery at hand. The novel is dense, but always readable, moving forward at a deliberate pace towards its satisfying conclusion. If you haven't picked up a Dublin Murder Squad mystery, treat yourself! Each one is a gem in its own right and even more delightful taken as one of a whole.

I just don’t get the rave reviews for this author. I found both In the Woods and this book slow and pretty boring. I will say there is very good character development which is often missing in mysteries/thrillers. But though her books have promising premises, they just don’t deliver.
