Read my review of the audiobook here:

I picked this one up because it's set in Dublin, and because it won an Edgar Award. I was really impressed.

The book is part mystery, part thriller, part psychological study of survivors and murderers. French is a good writer, and she develops two great central characters to build her book around. Both are wounded, and both are bright, and the reader will root for them throughout.

Since this is a mystery/thriller, I don't want to give any details. Suffice it so say I like the book as a whole but found the ending annoying. I find that to be true with a lot of mysteries, so it didn't ruin the book for me. Instead, I'll just think up an ending I like better for this pair of detectives.
