Faithful Place the hotly anticipated novel by Tana French, is an intricate and edgy top-notch psychological thriller.  Beautifully written and elegantly descriptive, this is a true literary detective novel rather than a whodunit.  Frank Mackey, head of Dublin undercover unit, left home at 19 to run away with the girl he was madly in love with, but Rosie never showed up.  Frank assumed she’d left him behind, but 22 years later his sister finds Rosie’s suitcase hidden in an abandoned house.  Frank reluctantly returns home to his childhood neighborhood, Faithful Place, and finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind.  Tana French visits themes of love, loss, memory, murder, and life in modern Ireland with brilliant dialogue, humor, and suspense.
