    Best Book of 2020 by New York Times, NPR, and New York Post

    "This hushed suspense tale about thwarted dreams of escape may be her best one yet.... Its own kind of masterpiece." (Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post)

    "A new Tana French is always cause for celebration.... Read it once for the plot; read it again for the beauty and subtlety of French's writing." (Sarah Lyall, The New York Times)

    Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After 25 years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.

    "One of the greatest crime novelists writing today" (Vox) weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking how to tell right from wrong in a world where neither is simple, and what we stake on that decision.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “A slow-burn stunner that will keep readers turning the pages late into the night. Recommend to the author’s legions of fans, as well as those who enjoy crime fiction set in small towns like Julia Keller’s or Jane Harper’s novels.” (Library Journal, starred review)

    “In another stand-alone, French again displays impressive versatility...French skillfully builds suspense...a fine thriller, but also a moving story of an unlikely friendship that grows from refinishing a ramshackle desk to rebuilding two nearly broken lives.” (Booklist)

    “Deliver[s] plenty of twists, shocking revelations, and truly chilling moments.” (Kirkus)

    Tolles Buch, wunderbare Geschichte

    Endlich einmal wieder eine echte Geschichte anstatt das Abarbeiten von Erfolgsvorlagen. Originell, und berührend mit fein gezeichneten, detaillierten Charakteren gepaart mit einem ausgezeichneten Leser.

    Loved it!

    I loved the story, the plot, the characters! And the narrator was excellent! I just could not stop listening!

    Excellent ingredients in a thin soup lacking spice

    Yes, she can narrate, yes, she can develop characters, but in the end you wonder if the narrating and character developing wasn't a bit overdone and more effort should have been invested in the story itself. It was a well told but in the end boring narrative with a finale lacking everything making the whole thing worth reading. Probably great for fans, but I won't become one.

    Tara French keeps you proofing your own heart and tolerances ...

    as usually Tana French tells not only a twisted crime story but also and very much about feelings and behaviours of very different kinds of persons. In her unique and sensible way she keeps us, the readers, wondering in search of our own judgmental way of living ... as a listener I had to get used of the Americans irish accents, but in the end liked to recognize each figure by voice immediately ... very much.

    Good voice, boring story

    I usually love Tana French and this book is very atmospheric and a good character study. However, the story did not catch me, it dragged on and there was not enough to it. The voice of the reader is gtrad though, I really enjoyed listening to him.

    Thank you!

    After hearing this book I am speechless. The intensity of the story and the art of storytelling turn it into a work of art.

    Great Story. Great Voice.

    Just could´nt stop listening! Even if the story was´nt so alive and thrilling (which it is!) I would have relished it from the first word to the very last. The voice and rhythm of Roger Clark suites it so well ... I guess that guy could read the telephone book to me and I would enjoy it.
    But of course it was much better than that - Tana French made me see and hear and smell everything that happened and led me to a beautyful and unexpected and yet very plausible end.
    Thanks to both of them.

    Hin und hergerissen

    Das Buch war einerseits fesselnd, andererseits besonders in den letzten Hörstunden für mich sehr unglaubwürdig. Ich will keine Spoiler geben, darum nur: Cal nimmt das alles so hin? Für sich selbst, für Brendan und für Trey? Wirklich? Und ein Hund am Ende soll die Psyche nach einigem Trauma wieder ins Lot bringen? Ausserdem war er lange Polizist und kennt sich aus mit legalities und resources. Ich mochte das Ende nicht und konnte mich auch nicht damit trösten, dass im echten Leben vieles ungesühnt/ungeklärt bleibt. Wie soll eine 13 jährige mit der Info, die auf sie einströmt umgehen. Absurde Erwartungshaltung. Vielleicht hat mich auch die macho Leserstimme extra irritiert.

    Great reading/listening experience

    Rarely have I found a reader to fit the story as well as he does here. Greatly written, believable characters, athmospheric, exciting story that I really enjoyed listening to. Feels like I just spent a few days in rural Ireland.

    Most paranoid cop / ex cop I've ever encountered

    An interesting read, but the ex cop is scared of his own shadow ;) Most paranoid cop I've ever encountered in a book... Sees danger everywhere all the time.
