But on the winter night when they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again.
Neither did Rosie. Everyone thought she had gone to England on her own and was over there living a shiny new life. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank is going home whether he likes it or not.
Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly-and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done. (Goodreads)
This was one of the best damn audio books I have listened to so far. Oh my goodness! What a delight! The narrator embodied everything that I could imagine Frank Mackey to be and captured the essence and distinct atmosphere of Tana French's Dublin.
I was originally slated to do Broken Harbor, the 4th book in the Dublin Murder Squad, for the R.I.P Challenge but the month is almost done and I finished this was already. Why stress myself out?
I'm still moving on to Broken Harbor, I just don't think I will finish it before the end of this month.
I read French's first two books in this series and because of great reviews, i thought I'd give the audio of the third a try.
This was an amazing pick, both for the spooky month of October and as a good audio pick.
I am sad I did not get a chance to complete my other choice for the R.I.P challenge, the BBC movie of FIngersmith (the novel by Sarah Waters). It did not come in yet from the library. When I do get it, I will still review it here. Let's not hold our breath though. I've been waiting since August. :)
Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!
