Praise for THE LIKENESS: 'An intricate and edgy top-notch psychological thriller.'
Creepily melding elements of Donna Tartt's 'The Secret History' and undercover police procedural, THE LIKENESS by Tana French, seduces from the start... A nifty tale of desire for belonging, as well as a cool thriller
Beautifully written and elegantly descriptive, this is a true literary detective novel rather than a whodunnit
The Likeness isn't just a good page-turner, but a skilfully written modern novel . . . French has a brilliant ear for dialogue . . . Also in the best tradition of classic crime writers, such as P D James and Ruth Rendell, her characters are fully-rounded people and she is able to layer plots and storylines with a mastery that belies the fact that it is only her second book.
French's second foray into the dark world of psychological crime more than proves she's the real deal
