The searing new psychological crime novel from the international bestseller

Tana French grew up in Ireland, Italy, the United States and Malawi. She trained as an actor at Trinity College Dublin and has worked mainly in theatre. Her first novel, In the Woods, was published in 2007; it won the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity and Barry awards for Best First Novel and the IVCA Clarion Award for Best Fiction. In the Woods and her second novel, The Likeness, were both New York Times bestsellers. She lives in Dublin with her husband and daughter.

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 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. -- Sophie Hannah, Daily Express The acclaimed Irish crime writer returns with a timely tale -- Irish Times Fast-paced psychological thriller ... Gripping. -- Image Magazine Dublin French is on finest spine-chilling form in her fourth crime thriller ... subtlety of plot, language and tone ... makes this one of the must-read-page-turners -- Sunday Times Dublin With red herrings and false turns aplenty, Broken Harbour by Tana French will keep you gripped right to the shocking final page. -- Good Housekeeping Edgar-winner French's eloquently slow-burning fourth Dublin murder squad novel shows her at the top of her game ... French excels at drawing out complex character dynamics -- Publishers Weekly As beautifully written as it is gripping -- Stellar Magazine Ireland Lauded as Tana French's best crime fiction yet, the writer's fourth thriller triumphantly conjures up the atmosphere of an Irish town ravaged by recession and the underlying animosity simmering among its actuely drawn characters -- Stylist - Hot New Books of July A deftly written thriller -- Woman & Home Creepy, compelling and uncomfortably believable, this is not just a story about solving a crime, but about the destruction of a generation's hopes and dreams -- Independent Tana French is one of the most assured crime novelists writing today and BROKEN HARBOUR affirms her reputation. French spins a suspenseful web, which tightens with every chapter. -- Time Out But this turns out to be not so much a novel about how fiscal disaster has affected ordinary people as an eerie psychological thriller that plays on fears more fundamental than worry over mortgage payments. French succeeded in frightening me and, fat though this novel is, I wish she could have done it for longer. -- Daily Telegraph French is an impressive writer who knows just how to manipulate her readers' emotions ... as revelation follows revelation, the dark pull of the narrative keeps you enthralled until the entirely satisfying ending. -- Spectator It looks like murder and then suicide on the part of the recently unemployed father but French's superlative chiller turns into something more ambiguous and sinister. -- Sunday Express Books of the Year Mesmerising -- Irish Daily Star Books of the Year
