Staff Reviews


How
did I miss Tana French? Think Frank McCourt and Henning Mankell and you’ll have
some idea of what awaits you at Faithful Place. Set in a
poverty-stricken section of Dublin, this is mystery and love story, family saga
and police procedural, all the while managing to be both heart-breaking and
wryly comedic.  The writing took my
breath away—I can see the street, hear the characters as Frank from the Dublin
Undercover squad returns after 22 years to his family and the scene of the
disappearance of his first love on the night they were to run away to
London.  Remember those books where you
slowed down towards the end because even though you had to know how they ended,
you didn’t want them to? This is one of those.

“Faithful Place by Tana French is just plain good storytelling. Frank, an undercover cop, is dragged back into his complicated and violent personal past by a shocking discovery, and as a result finds himself at the center of a riveting tale about family and how even loving relationships can turn destructive. The importance of Dublin as a setting - both in the present and recent past - can't be overlooked as French makes the city a living, breathing character lurking in the back ground of this compelling tale.”

Description


Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was nineteen, living in a small flat with his family on Faithful Place in Dublin's inner city. He and Rosie Daly planned to run away to London, get married, and break away from poverty and their old lives. But the night they were leaving, Rosie didn't show. Frank assumed that she dumped him and never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Now, twenty-two years, later Rosie's suitcase shows up in a derelict house on Faithful Place.
