From Tana French, author of the forthcoming novel The Hunter, “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post), the New York Times bestseller called “the most stunning of her books” (The New York Times) and a finalist for the Edgar Award. Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen-year-old kid with a dream of escaping hisi family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, is going home whether he likes it or not.

"The way she writes these cast of characters is amazing - they were well rounded, fun to read, and the drama that enveloped them and how they reacted to it was what made me come home everyday from work just to see how they would react. I enjoyed the crime aspect to it, kept me on edge and there's a little twist that surprised me quite a bit because it was so underplayed but executed brilliantly. I wasn't entirely satisfied with the ending... but I can ignore that because it was a great story. "
