The Secret Place by Tana French
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Whew--this books makes me glad to be an adult, because those Irish boarding school teenage girls are mean, sneaky, little twerps. Basically the entire book is one day--Cold Case Detective Moran is visited by another cop's daughter and given a card that says "I know who killed him." Referring to a murder of a Colm's student the year before that was never solved, the card is a mystery. Who put it on the Secrets Place board?
Det. Moran is lucky that Dublin's Murder squad detective Conway lets him tag along to interview the girls--she made a good call. The entire book is interviewing the girls--multiple times in one day because they keep lying and barely releasing the information that is needed. There are also chapters that flash back to the year before and the events leading up to Chris Harper's death.
Just woah. I don't want to be friends with these girls.
