The Likeness by Tana French
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's strange to read a mystery novel that has a little bit of literary goodness in it.
Cassie Maddox hasn't really recovered mentally from her last big case (see In the Woods, but she agrees to undercover for a few weeks to figure out a big mystery. A Trinity College student who looks like just Cassie was discovered dead in a deserted cottage, but the oddest thing is that her ID said that she was Lexie Madison, a fake person that the Dublin police created years ago when Cassie was working undercover. How did the dead woman find the ID? Was Lexie (or whatever her name is) meant to be dead or was the killer really looking to kill Cassie?
Kinda unbelievable, but I was sucked into the tale. Cassie likes undercover, almost too much, and living in a house with 4 other graduate students who might be killers sure creates suspense! I'm looking forward to reading Book #3 in the Dublin Murder Squad--Faithful Place
