"The Likeness" has currents of a river when you read it. Infrequently it is face-paced, hurling over rapids. You have to pay attention to everything or you are going to miss something crucial. Most of the time it is big and slow and lazy. The book follows the rhythm of the house.

There is so much I want to write but I don't want to spoil the book. My favorite part is watching Cassie work through things in her mind. In the end, I think she found healing with the people in that house. Maybe it was because there she had time to do nothing.

This a good book for a discussion group because it deals with creating artificial families, ignoring one's past, unspoken rules within the family, and lastly, would Daniel's experiment work? ( )

La segunda del escuadrón de Dublin, mejor que la primera, muy buena. Una vez que uno acepta las premisas algo excepcionales del punto de partida, se desarrolla una trama muy buena sobre un crimen, y los agentes encubiertos. ( )

I really enjoyed this. Once again Tana has managed to capture the joy of friendships. And unlike the first book the narrator is someone with whom you can empathise and engage. The situation is incredibly contrived, but allowing that one off is interesting problem and well investigated.

Cassie has left Murder squad and gone to work in a less demanding and potentially more rewarding Domestic Violence. But one day she gets a call from her boyfriend (still in Murder) who sounds incredibly panicked, asking her to come out to a remote ruined cottage in the countryside. There she finds her old Undercover boss, Frank, and a body - which looks almost exactly like her. What's even more astounding is that all the ID they can find, states that the victim had been living under one of the IDs Cassie had used whilst undercover - a completely invented person who'd only been around for a couple of months, has somehow come to life and then been killed. Frank comes up with the cunning wheeze - since they nothing about the girl's history, or what led her to be there, Cassie could re-invent her Lexie persona, and they'd tell the everyone she'd just been in a coma, and had now recovered.

Cassie is less amused by this idea, and Sam quite angry, but in the end they can't get any further information and run with it. Cassie goes to live with four pHD Students as Lexie. She quickly belnds in with their tight-knit community and slightly quirky lifestyles. They are insular, with a 'no pasts' rule that bonds them tightly as a unit, but frustrates Cassie's search for who and why she was killed. However cracks start to appear in the façade and she knows if she takes a few risks and pushes a bit the answers will appear. Neither her boss nor her boyfriend are too impressed, but there's little they can do without compromising her position, and she's still the best lead they have.

Some of philosophising is little weird - although that probably makes sense from the students point of view - but they never seem to realise just how privileged their situation is.

Great fun, cleverly written the camaraderie of the friends is a joy to read. ( )

BONKERS premise that is mostly pulled off just fine. ( )

I don’t think I’ve ever reacted to a crime novel before the way that I reacted to Tana French’s The Likeness (the second book in the author’s Dublin Murder Squad series). Almost from the beginning of the book, I found its basic premise to be implausible, if not impossible. There was simply no way that I could ever convince myself that an undercover cop could investigate a murder by moving into the victim’s home — especially when the home’s other four residents knew the victim so intimately — and pretending to be that dead woman. After two false starts during which I frustrated myself for a month, I finally put the book aside at page 140 for almost three months before finally picking it up again. And that’s when something funny happened. About a dozen pages later, I realized that French had finally quit trying to convince me that such an investigation really could happen, and was ready to tell me the rest of the story. That shift in emphasis let me finally suspend my disbelief long enough to lose myself in The Likeness for the first time. Now what I find most unbelievable is how much I ended up loving this novel and its characters…all of them.

Detective Cassie Maddox thought she was forever finished with murder investigations after what happened to her on her last one. But now, just six months after leaving the squad, Cassie has been called to the scene of a murder by her boyfriend Detective Sam O’Neill, who is still a member of the Murder Squad. When Cassie looks down at the dead woman, she immediately knows why Sam called her there: the victim could be Cassie’s identical twin.

And that gives Frank Mackey, Cassies former undercover boss, an idea: What if they pretend that the victim somehow survived long enough to make it to the hospital? What if a few days later, the “dead girl” comes home to live with the people she lives with and claims that she doesn’t remember a thing about the incident that nearly killed her? What if the other four people living in the house fall for the charade long enough for Cassie and Frank to figure out which one of the four murdered the dead woman? And what if they don’t?

Even Cassie and Frank are a bit surprised when she seems to have successfully passed herself off as the dead Lexie. But they know that it will take only one little slip, one oddity out of character with the real Lexie, to expose Cassie to whomever killed Lexie. But instead of being overwhelmed by the precariousness of her situation, Cassie reacts in a way no one could have foreseen. She finds herself enjoying the lifestyle and the people she’s living with so much that she begins to protect some of their secrets from her boss. What could possibly go wrong now?

Bottom Line: The best thing about a Tana French novel is the characters she creates. French does not write short books (this one is 466 pages long), and that gives her the time needed to create very real, if often eccentric, characters. The reader is given all the time needed to learn not only the basics about each character, but all the little things about them that make them individuals: their petty rivalries and jealousies, their pasts, their fears, their hopes for the future, and where all the scars are hidden. I only reluctantly climbed into their world this time around, but I’m very happy that I made it. Don’t make the mistake I almost made by giving up on The Likeness too soon. Keep turning those pages.

Although she overburdens the traditional police-procedural form with the weight of romance, psychological suspense, social history and mythic legend, she sets a vivid scene for her complex characters, who seem entirely capable of doing the unexpected.
 
Tolv år gamle Adam Ryan lekte i skogen sammen med de to beste vennene sine en vakker solkinnsdag.Han så dem aldri igjen.Tjue år senere er Adam, eller Rob som han kaller seg nå, etterforsker i Dublin-politiet. Kollegene kjenner ikke til bakgrunnen hans som offer for en forbrytelse. Partneren hans er Cassie Maddox. Rob og Cassie får saken da en jente blir funnet drept på et steinalter midt i en arkeologisk utgravning. Først da de kommer til åstedet skjønner Rob at dette er det samme stedet som der vennene hans forsvant den gangen for lenge siden.Og da de finner en hårspenne som han gjenkjenner som en venninnen hans hadde, melder spørsmålet seg: Er det en sammenheng mellom det som skjedde den gangen og mordet de skal etterforske nå? Rob vet at dersom han avslører sin fortid for andre enn Cassie kommer han til å bli tatt av saken; han tar en skjebnesvanger avgjørelse om å tie. Sammen med Cassie skal han oppklare mordet på Katy Devlin, og han håper at han dermed også vil løse gåten i sin egen fortid.
