bookshelves: mystery

The circumstances of this book are utterly ridiculous. The idea of a police officer who has a remarkable physical resemblance to a murdered woman going undercover as that women in order to discover her killer is utterly ludicrous, but Tana French makes it seem almost plausible.

I don't think I enjoyed this quite as much as her first book, "In the Woods", but it was an excellent mystery nonetheless. Cassie's dark attraction to undercover work, and the effects of the events in "In the Woods" on her life, are wonderfully depicted. The house of students she infiltrates and becomes so drawn in by draws us in as well, and it is partly this that allows us to suspend our disbelief - we desperately want her to delve into the mysteries of the house and the relationships of those within. I think Tana French has become one of my "read everything she writes" authors.
