    Un juego de ninos / Child's Play (Arete) (Spanish Edition) de Donna Tartt (rbtanger)
    rbtanger: The similarities between these two books are numerous, in spite of the fact that one takes place in Ireland in the 1980s and one in the 1970s American South. If you enjoyed one, I think it highly probable you will enjoy the other.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series but I couldn't get away from the fact that the main character (Rob Ryan, blegh) was an unreliable fuckboy, determined to destroy everything good in his life through sheer concentrated douchebaggery. By contrast the main character of this novel (Cassie Maddox, yay) is also hurdling down towards the bottom of a well but realizes it and doesn't try to excuse her worst behavior and I loved her. And Sam, I loved Sam. Sam is whatever the opposite of a fuckboy is and he's worth fifty Rob Ryans. Also the mystery was fascinating and the ending was nutbar and the writing was lush and all that good stuff, but mainly it came down to how much I loved Cassie and Sam. I wish the next book in the series focused on them and not Frank the Asshole Undercover Agent. ( )

Second in the Dublin Murder Squad series. Well-written mystery with a detective named Cassie Maddox as the main protagonist. I think that reading the Dublin Murder Squad series in order provides a great psychological background for each subsequent book. (Cassie plays an important part in the first novel of the series, "In the Woods".) An interesting view of how bad decisions play out in a detective procedural.
Due to a group of closely-connected graduate college students at the core of this novel, it's reminiscent of Donna Tartt's 'Secret History' in many ways. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Fresh, interesting premise with a main character and plot that keeps the reader's attention. Looking forward to reading more by this author. ( )
  ShannonHollinger | Feb 15, 2021 |
So, Tana French's second novel continues following the Dublin Murder Squad, although it seems her gimmick is each successive book follows a character introduced in the last one - The Likeness follows Rob's partner Cassie from the first book, and I see the third novel follows Frank Mackey, the guy-who-knows-a-guy undercover guru introduced in The Likeness - so if you were hoping for more quality time with Rob Ryan (I wasn't), you'll be disappointed.

I'll get the obvious comparison to Donna Tartt's Real Good eccentric-college-students-get-mixed-up-in-crime story The Secret History out of the way: this is kind of like that but as a police procedural. I don't think French is on the same level as Tartt (but then I don't think a lot of people are), but her crazily florid writing has sort of grown on me (although it sometimes seems like she has a dartboard covered in sticky notes that say things like "honey and seawater" or "oranges and pennies"). This is an interesting, taut mystery (my heart was racing throughout all of the third act) and you should maybe give it a try. ( )

Rubbish. So many words, so many hours spent reading those never ending unnecessary words only to be left with the vaguest of answers to mystery at the core of this novel. I wish I had the time back. ( )

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.
