About this ebook

New York Times bestselling author Tana French, author of the forthcoming novel The Hunter, is “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post) and “inspires cultic devotion in readers” (The New Yorker).

“Required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting.” —The New York Times

In the “compellingˮ (The Boston Globe) and “pitch perfectˮ (Entertainment Weekly) follow-up to Tana French’s runaway bestseller In the Woods, Cassie Maddox has transferred out of the Dublin Murder Squad—until an urgent telephone call brings her back to an eerie crime scene.
The victim looks exactly like Cassie and carries ID identifying herself as Alexandra Madison, an alias Cassie once used as an undercover cop. Suddenly, Cassie is back undercover, to find out not only who killed this young woman, but, more importantly, who she was.
The Likeness is a supremely suspenseful story exploring the nature of identity and belonging.

Her books pull you in quickly in the first chapter or two then drag on up until the last few chapters. I feel like nothing big ever really happens. "In the woods" was better but I liked Rob's character. That being said ... Tana is really a great writer. I feel for all her characters. Her descriptions make you feel like you are right there. You almost wish you could be part of it. The endings are always depressing but I am sure that's typically how cases end in all reality. I will continue the series.

Love this book. It's one of those books that stays with you. I can't express how much I love this book, I apparently can't even put it into words. Especially good for those of us who have had magical, apart from reality friendships.
