From Tana French, author of our Thriller of the Month for September, The Wych Elm.

Still traumatised by her brush with a psychopath, Detective Cassie Maddox transfers out of the Murder squad and starts a relationship with fellow detective Sam O'Neill. When he calls her to the scene of his new case, she is shocked to find that the murdered girl is her double. What's more, her ID shows she is Lexie Madison - the identity Cassie used, years ago, as an undercover detective.

With no leads, no suspects and no clues to Lexie's real identity, Cassie's old boss spots the opportunity of a lifetime: send Cassie undercover in her place, to tempt the killer out of hiding to finish the job.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'French's second foray into the dark world of psychological crime more than proves she's the real deal' - The Daily Mirror 

'The most interesting, the most important crime novelist to emerge in the last ten years' - The Washington Post

'Riveting ... hugely satisfying' - The Irish Independent

'Claustrophobic, conversational, clever and beautifully written' - The Literary Review

'I can do you no greater favour in life than recommending that you read her books' - The Guardian 

'Skilfully written ... French has a brilliant ear for dialogue ... in the best tradition of classic crime writers, such as P D James and Ruth Rendell, her characters are fully-rounded people and she is able to layer plots and storylines with a mastery that belies the fact that it is only her second book.' - The Sunday Independent, Dublin

'Creepily melding elements of Donna Tartt's The Secret History ... The Likeness by Tana French, seduces from the start ... A nifty tale of desire for belonging, as well as a cool thriller' - Time Out
