April 2015 Book of the Month.
A stunning murder mystery, yes, Tana French has awards that say so, but as with all her novels it is so much more. An exploration of friendship, the deep do-or-die kind, and an intricate peek into the teenage psyche, a forgotten world for many of us. It steps right up to the cusp of the supernatural, it draws you in and sweeps you along. Told partly in first person by Stephen Moron, who we know from a previous book (which you do not have to read to enjoy this) and partly as the narrative of what happened the year before, the events lead slowly and inevitably to a killing. It is a beautiful book, a compelling book, an amazing book. And check out her others; they’re amazing too.
