Faithful Place; Tana French

Faithful Place (Dublin Murder Squad, #3)Faithful Place by Tana French
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sigh. I really should have paced myself while reading these. Now I have to wait at least a year before there's a new Dublin Murder Squad book. Rats.

The first person narrative, each time from another detective's point-of-view, makes these feel very personal. And then there's the sense of place (no pun intended, given the title!). As for this particular installment, we're actually not part of the Murder Squad but peeking in another detective's life, a detective who should know better about getting involved because it's his family and his first love. That was the one thing that didn't ring quite true: wouldn't he have been firmly warned off?
