If you liked In the Woods, you will like The Likeness.

There were only a couple of things preventing me from giving this five stars. First, Tana French needs an editor with a heavier hand. The book is about fifty pages too long, and the beginning drags.

Second, the premise is totally implausible. Most crime novels don't require quite as big a suspension of disbelief. But I got over it in the first hundred pages.

Overall, a great read. Great finish. Echos of In the Woods haunt this book, which means you should really read that one first. Highly recommended.
