Product description

Review

I've been enthusiastically telling everyone who will listen to read Tana French. She is, without a doubt, my favorite new mystery writer. Her novels are poignant, compelling, beautifully written and wonderfully atmospheric. Just start reading the first page. You'll see what I mean. (Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of STAY CLOSE)

Broken Harbour is a complex, well crafted psychological thriller as well as an exemplary dissection of the plight of the disappointed and desperate human wreckage washed up in post-Celtic Tiger Ireland. As always, French's carefully wrought but seemingly effortless prose is a delight. A hugely impressive and intelligent book, with writing to savour. It confirms French as the First Lady of Irish Crime. (Irish Independent)

Observer Thriller of the Month: 'Enticing, threatening, atmospheric prose' . . . Broken Harbour is a tale about the different facets of obsession and insanity, and it winds up to a finale that is almost too distressing. The best yet of French's four excellent thrillers, it leaves its readers - just like the Spains - "throat-deep in terror"' (Observer)

With Broken Harbour, Tana French should cement her name not only as the queen of Irish crime fiction but the queen of Irish fiction. Broken Harbour sucks you into its murky depths that any good novel - crime or otherwise - should . . . the breadth of character is also astonishing . . . This is a writer working at the height of her powers . . . humour, pathos, well-observed social commentary, but above all a cracking story that keeps you guessing until the end . . . A great Irish novel. (Sunday Independent Dublin)

A gripping story in an atmospheric setting by an author who knows how to grab a reader's interest and never let it go . . . not a word of this densely written, long novel was superfluous - I would have been happy for it to be longer still. (Literary Review)

Gradually, an emotionally jolting story of love, obsession and madness is played out to incredible effect in this searing, intense, complex and intelligent thriller by a new master of the art. (Daily Mail)

A thoroughly mesmerising story. After four novels, French is fast becoming one of the best crime writers around . . . a briliantly twisted tale (Heat)

Finely written psychological crime thriller . . . the characters are subtly drawn and the writer reveals a sense of time and place. (Choice)

Tana French is one of those rare novelists who combine a gift for dialogue and characterisation, with suspense, intrigue and fabulous plotting. And she's a beautiful writer, to boot. A real treat. (Kate Mosse)

A beautifully crafted thriller that exposes the bleak repercussions of destroyed hope in recession-riddled Dublin. The setting for Tana French's stunning thriller is an eerie ghost estate on the outskirts of Dublin, where half-finished houses and abandoned buildings provide a chilling backdrop. (Marie Claire)

Review

'Establishing atmosphere is one of French's many strengths. Gradually, an emotionally jolting story of love, obsession and madness is played out to incredible effect. Since her first novel, In The Woods, was larded with awards in 2007 French has garnered a huge legion of fans and they will be thrilled with this, her fourth and possibly best novel.'

(Daily Mail 20120614)

Praise for Tana French

(: 20120614)

'Every holiday needs a good crime novel and French's skilful thrillers are tailor-made to terrify' (Guardian 20120614)

'A gripping, literate thriller laced with black humour' (Irish Times 20120614)

'If you're only going to buy one thriller this year, let it be Tana French's Faithful Place. Searing, utterly Dub, and very funny . . . Tana French, Dublin author of international hits . . . is a wonder. Just don't plan anything if you pick this up; you won't be able to put it down.' (Evening Herald (Dublin) 20120617)

'Gripping. Tana French's third novel hooks the reader from the outset; the characters are masterfully drawn, and the author's ear for Dublin dialogue is pitch-perfect.' (Irish Independent )

'The first thing that Ms. French does so well in Faithful Place is to inhabit fully a scrappy, shrewd, privately heartbroken middle-aged man. The second is to capture the Mackey family's long-brewing resentments in a way that's utterly realistic on many levels. Sibling rivalries, class conflicts, old grudges, adolescent flirtations and memories of childhood violence are all deftly embedded in this novel, as is the richly idiomatic Dublinese.' (New York Times )

'Ambitious and extraordinary'

(Washington Post )

'Crime fiction at its best'

(InStyle magazine )

'One of the most startling debuts I have seen any writer make: polished, assured, ferociously intelligent, at once very original and effortlessly engaged with the conventions of crime fiction'

(Sydney Morning Herald )

'I've been enthusiastically telling everyone who will listen to read Tana French. Her novels are poignant, compelling, beautifully written and wonderfully atmospheric. Just start reading the first page. You'll see what I mean.'

(Harlan Coben )

'Nothing short of a masterpiece. French's first three thrillers were all brilliant but this is by far her best and reaches a level of spine-chilling, gripping moreishness that will leave readers open-mouthed with admiration. If I encounter a better novel than Broken Harbour before French publishes her fifth, I'll eat a milliner's shop full of hats.'

(Sophie Hannah, Daily Express )
