The Secret Place (Dublin Murder Squad)

We rated this book:


A year after the high profile murder of a beloved male student from a neighboring private school, the preppy St. Kilda’s girls are anything but innocent when a card appears on their anonymous, communal bored claiming, “I know who killed him.” Switching from the present, where detectives Moran and Conway are up against the exclusive, ricocheting, and dangerous loyalties of the inviolate, sealed-tight bond of best friends, and the past moments leading up to the victim’s death, only one thing is certain: forever is not a promise you can keep. In distinctive Tana French fashion, we’re thrown into a critical investigation of subtle, teasing intensity where every sentence simmers, every sideways glance matters. There’s uneasiness, an undertow of warning, at the center, like you’re forgetting or overlooking something you can’t afford to miss, misunderstanding the one urgently whispered secret you needed to hear, fitfully grasping for the unattainable. She sets the stage with shadows and quick flashes of harsh, swinging spotlight. She makes you hold your breath. She makes hesitancy hyperventilating. She shifts everything, reveling in the delicacy and the distortion of assuming you know all there is to know about those closest to you.
