-----------------------------------------------------------

Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a remote Irish village would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the Chicago police force, and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens.

But then a local kid comes looking for his help. His brother has gone missing, and no one, least of all the police, seems to care. Cal wants nothing to do with any kind of investigation, but somehow he can't make himself walk away.

Soon Cal will discover that even in the most idyllic small town, secrets lie hidden, people aren't always what they seem, and trouble can come calling at his door.

Our greatest living mystery writer weaves a masterful tale of breath-taking beauty and suspense, asking how we decide what's right and wrong in a world where neither is simple, and what we risk if we fail.

Secrets in small Irish village

Cal Hooper starts his new life in rural Ireland, after spending 20+ years on the Chicago PD. But obviously there is criminal activity in even the smallest village. Therefore, Cal is soon busy trying to find out what happened to a 19 year old boy half a year ago. And since he has no CSI team and no piece of evidence, he has to solve this puzzle solely with (unreliable) statements and his own wit. Tana French takes her time to tell her story, which makes it slow especially in the beginning. But the author wants to paint a complete picture, and this includes detailling minor characters or an evening in the pub. And it pays off - I could perfectly visualize all these people and their surroundings. I was just as curious as Trey and Cal what happened to Brendan, although I could not see for a long time how Cal would be able to solve this case - with the few information he got. But that made the last quarter of the book so much more exciting.

Wonderful, heartbreaking entertainment

Tana French is by far my favorite author. I read all her novels and I wasn't disappointed by "The Searcher" at all. I loved the setting in a small Irish village and although I guessed which character was to be trusted halfway through the book, it was still a page-turner as there were so many questions to be answered in the end. ...

I love Tana's style of writing so much. She knows how to tell tales of crime in a special way and she always manages that I feel and suffer with her characters so very much.

'That's what I came looking for,' he says. 'A small place. A small town in a small country. It seemed like that would be easier to make sense of. Guess I might've had that wrong.'

'A small place. A small town in a small country. It seemed like that would be easier to make sense of. Guess I might've had that wrong.' Cal Hooper, former detective with the Chicago police, left the States for a small village in Ireland. He bought an old run-down house that he is now repairing to make it a liveable place. For a couple of days already, he has felt somehow observed but couldn't see anybody, when suddenly a small boy appears. At first, Trey is shy and does not speak and only reluctantly comes closer. It takes some time for him to open up and reveal why he has come to Cal. His older brother Brendan has gone missing and nobody seems to be concerned or willing to do something about it. Trey is convinced that Brendan did not just pack his bag and leave to find his luck in Dublin, something really bad must have happened to him. Cal has come to like the shy boy who is eager to learn about repairing old furniture and has become a pleasant company, therefore, he agrees to use his experience as a cop and ask some questions. It does not take long for Cal to realise that his new home is all but an idyllic and peaceful place. Tana French's novel combines a mystery about a missing teenager with a heart-wrenching story about two lonely people who by chance find each other. It also shows a reality which nobody wants to see, a place which is out of the focus of any institutions and where some kind of parallel law has been established nobody dares to interfere with. The people, quite sadly, do not play an important role in this concept. Neglected youngsters either adapt or risk their lives. The biggest star of the novel, at least for me, is surely Trey. A courageous small kid, about 12 years old, who obviously lacks all education but has the heart in the right place and definitely an understanding of right and wrong. Even though well known in the small village, he does not know anybody to turn to and has to address a total stranger to find help. Everything connected to him is touching deeply and it is heart-breaking to see how Cal manages to gain his trust and build a friendship. The mystery part of the novel advances slowly but then accelerates and turns into a suspenseful crime story. The whole plot lives on the atmosphere and the characters who are brilliantly created and make it a great read.
