This novel immediately hooked me with its atypical portrayal of a dissatisfied young woman in a rural New England town during the 1960s. Despite Eileen's life being mundane and disappointing, the author still finds a way to keep you holding on to every single word with complete captivation as Eileen strives to escape her monotonous life in hopes for something more interesting. ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp

My favorite of French’s Dublin Murder Squad series. It is modeled after Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. The murder occurs among an inseparable clique of well-read college students living together in a large, old house, but it flips Tartt’s whydunnit concept back to the genre’s traditional whodunnit format. This novel requires a simple leap in believability: that the detective assigned to investigate this murder is a near doppelganger of the victim. Well-paced, thoroughly tense, and more fun than its inspiration. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau
