Faithful Place, Tana French, 2010

French does another exceptional job drawing characters, Dublin, and the nitty gritty of police work in this family based double murder story.  Francis Mackey returns to his very dysfunctional family and the tough part of Dublin to sort through the murder of his girlfriend Rose 22 years earlier and the subsequent murder of his brother, Kevin.  We are introduced to Steven Moran who is a new detective and to Holly, both of whom star in French’s next book.  While reading this one, it feels like French goes into way too much detail and way too much length, but upon completion one feels full, sated, and satisfied.  A great addition to my group of mystery writers.
