Frank Mackay, a detective we have encountered in French's previous books, is drawn reluctantly back to the family and past he left behind after a phone call from his sister. They have found a suitcase which belonged to his childhood sweetheart, a woman he thought had left him when she disappeared many years ago. Frank starts to look into her disappearance, and is forced to confront the disfunctional family he left behind and his own feelings about the past.

Tana French is such a fantastic writer, I always get completely caught up in her stories, even when they have slightly unbelievable premises as some of her earlier novels have had. But Faithful Place is grittily realistic - some of Frank's discoveries feel like a kick in the gut, they're so intense. And thankfully we have a resolution at the end of this novel, which I was a bit nervous about after French's debut novel (which is left very much up in the air).
