Don’t Miss these ” French” books August 1, 2011

Is it possible you have not yet discovered the author Tana French? I’ve just started reading her books (she now has 3), which are mysteries set in and around Dublin, Ireland. French seduces you with her imaginative characters, plots, and settings. Before you realize, you are caught up in the world of Irish villages and the Dublin Murder Squad characters. In the Woods centers around an old mystery of two missing children, and a new one about a missing/murdered young girl.  One of the investigators (Rob) on the new case happens to have been one of the children who was close friends of the children years ago and was with them when they went missing; the only problem is he could never remember anything about what happened. The second novel, The Likeness, focuses on the main character of Cassie, one of the detectives involved in the first case. This time, a murder victim is found in the small town of Glenskehy, and she looks exactly like the detective Cassie. I’m looking forward to reading the third book in this series, Faithful Place. If you troll the Internet, you might find a reference to an upcoming fourth book (possibly called Broken Harbour), but I can’t confirm this.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              -Ann
