The Likeness by Tana French

Staff Pick

The second installment of French's Dublin Murder Squad series is a light and engaging mystery that delivers on a unique premise: detective Cassie Maddox goes undercover to impersonate a murder victim and reconstruct the circumstances of the death. The victim, Lexie, was Cassie’s exact physical doppelgänger and was living under one of Cassie’s aliases. As Cassie assumes her identity she moves to the Irish countryside with Lexie’s friends— all prime suspects. But the longer she lives as Lexie, the more she uncovers about who Lexie really was… and what her "family" is hiding.  Painting a lush, atmospheric portrait of rural Ireland, this page-turner revels in the gradual buildup of tension that escalates to thrilling twists and reveals. Enjoy it as a stand-alone or as the bridge to Faithful Place.
