Waiting on Wednesday - Faithful Place

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

I loved In the Woods by Tana French, so I can't wait for her new book, Faithful Place.
Release Date: 13 July 2010

From Amazon:
Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was nineteen, growing up poor in Dublin's inner city, and living crammed into a small flat with his family on Faithful Place. But he had his sights set on a lot more. He and Rosie Daly were all ready to run away to London together, get married, get good jobs, break away from factory work and poverty and their old lives.

But on the winter night when they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again.

Neither did Rosie. Everyone thought she had gone to England on her own and was over there living a shiny new life. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank is going home whether he likes it or not.

Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly-and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done.

  1. I have yet to read a book by this author, but this one certainly does sound like something I'd enjoy. I know she has 2 earlier books, are they a series?

  7. I still have to read her other two! Is this the 3rd in a series or a standalone? This one sounds very intriguing! Thanks for posting about it (and for visiting me today!).

  8. My mom loved In The Woods--I should have borrowed it from her! This sounds like a great read too, and a sharp historical mystery.

    My WoW pick is here.
