How Faithful Place Got Me Through a 10 Hour Car Ride (Spoilers)

I have to start off by saying Tana French's Faithful Place wasn't just a one mystery book, or even two. It was three or four or maybe five small mysteries written into one book with a love story mixed in and a dash of family hilarity. I laughed so much reading about Frank's family.  Read more >

And even though you can’t exactly remember how and why, you already know who is to blame for the especially heinous offenses.  Read more >

Mystery, murder, love, intrigue, and dysfunctional families. Tana French's Faithful Place has them all.

A Vivid Visit to Faithful Place

Sure, on the face of it, Tana French's Faithful Place is a crime novel, mystery novel, thriller… whatever your preferred term.
