Reviews

"[Tana French] aces her second novel. The Likeness [is a] nearly pitch-perfect follow-up to her 2007 debut thriller, In the Woods." --Entertainment Weekly** "Tana French puts a clever twist on every lonely child's fantasy of leading a parallel life when she creates an alternate identity for her detective in THE LIKENESS... Cassie is a character -- the eternal lost child -- you can really care about." --New York Times Book Review "The writing is glorious, and the characters and drama so compelling" --The Boston Globe* "Savor French's turns of phrase and simmering suspense until the prospect of finishing shuts all distractions out." --The Baltimore Sun "The verve of her writing illuminates the uncanny experience of stepping into someone else's life. [The Likeness is] a sophisticated thriller." --The Dallas Morning News Praise for Tana French "When you read Ms. French -- and she has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting -- make only one assumption: All of your initial assumptions are wrong" --The New York Times "Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years." --The Washington Post "[Tana French] inspires cultic devotion in readers...most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming." --The New Yorker "To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she's simply this: a truly great writer."- --Gillian Flynn "French is a poet of mood and a master builder of plots." - --The Washington Post "One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing." --The Wall Street Journal "French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it's only growing more miraculous with every book." --Salon.com
