I didn't care all that much about how the mystery played out, it was a little bit 'meh'. But the relationship dynamics held my attention, and the portrayal of different sorts of people was very buyable. So overall I quite enjoyed it. ( )

Another great entry in this series. ( )

This was a great read - a compelling main character, fully developed secondary characters, a strong sense of place, and questions of family, loyalty, and justice. Frank Mackey thinks he's left behind his working class roots and dysfunctional family; he's not been home for over 20 years and maintains only a tenuous connection with one of his sisters. But he's pulled home for a cold case involving his old girlfriend who stood him up 22 years ago on the verge of their departure together for England.

There's a lot going on in the book, and I loved how French managed to weave all the strings together and to draw parallels and connections between Frank then and now. The scenes with Frank and his daughter are so well done, and his inner turmoil about how to be a good father when he had no example is heartbreaking in many ways. This is a pretty dark book in its take on one's ability to move beyond one's past only so far. And how as much as we'd like to leave certain things behind, it's impossible because they helped to form us and so stay with us, woven into our very beings. ( )

Frank Mackey, undercover detective in the Dublin Murder Squad, is the main character in this, the 3rd installment in Tana French's series. When Frank was a young 19-year-old, he and then-girlfriend Rosie planned to sneak away together to London. However, Rosie never showed up to their designated meeting place, and based on the note found nearby, he assumed she left for London without him. Itching to get away from his dysfunctional family, he fled as well, with a "good riddance" to his family. Now, many years later, Rosie's suitcase is found in their old stomping ground, and questions emerge. Did Rosie really run away to London, or did something more sinister occur?

Unlike the first two books of the series, this one explored the family dynamics of its main character, and boy did Frank have a messed up family. If I were him, I would've gotten the heck out of there as soon as possible too. Like the previous two books, this was a good story as well, though I missed the fact that there were no references to any of the characters from the previous books. I like that French picks a side character from one book to expand on in a subsequent book, but I also like when there are subtle ties to previous story lines, and there weren't really any in this one. But still, a good story and good mystery. I'm getting sucked into this series, so I suspect book #4 will be coming up quick in my reading queue. ( )

Read this one shortly after [In the Woods], meant that the formula felt a little more predictable. Still very well written and engaging, just less thrilling. ( )

The past haunts in Tana French novels. That which was buried is brought to light and wreaks hell--on no one moreso than Frank Mackey, beloved undercover guru and burly hero first mentioned in French's second book about the Undercover Squad, The Likeness. Faithful Place is Frank's old neighborhood, the town he fled twenty-two years ago, abandoning an abusive alcoholic father, harpy mother, and two brothers and sisters who never made it out. They say going home is never easy, but for Frank, investigating the cold case of the just-discovered body of his teenage girlfriend, it is a tangled, dangerous journey, fraught with mean motivations, black secrets, and tenuous alliances. Because he is too close to the case, and because the Place (including his family) harbors a deep-rooted distrust of cops, Frank must undergo his investigation furtively, using all the skills picked up from years of undercover work to trace the killer and the events of the night that changed his life. Faithful Place is Tana French's best book yet (readers familiar with In the Woods and The Likeness will recognize this as an incredible feat), a compelling and cutting mystery with the hardscrabble, savage Mackey clan at its heart.
