    Description

    The inspiration for the major new BBC drama series Dublin Murders.

    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.

    Good Story. Wo Sind De Anderen Bücher?

    What did you love best about The Likeness?

    Didn't enjoy it as much as In The Woods but it's engrossing and exciting. This one required the listener to suspend disbelief a little further.

    Any additional comments?

    Since it's part of a series, I'd like to hear them all. It drives me nuts that Audible only has some of the series and not the whole thing. Not even in order either. Unless you're prepared to learn German, good luck ever moving on to book 3. Or 4. If you don't care about continuity though you can listen to book 5.

    Story gets better at the 2nd half

    I took me a while to get into the story. Only half a way of the book the story trapped me and I got into the whole murder and the investigation. Happy I didn't give up. Cassie still an interesting character and I will give a chance to the third part. Performance: confusing initially, really like after few hours.

    Fantastic!

    The story was great - interesting, intriguing, suspenseful, with a good peppering of humour throughout. Cassie was a fantastic main character and French really makes details and atmospheres come alive. She uses vivid imagery, e dialogue sounds natural, and I was spellbound.

    Grainne Gillis is one of my favourite narrators so far (I’ve listened to over 150 of these). Her accents are great, the voices of the different characters are distinct, and easily distinguishable. Her reading matches the words and atmosphere completely - it’s impeccable. I’m going to look for other books she’s performed.

    It’s not necessary to read the book that came before this, but it does give some interesting context to Cassie, especially at the beginning of this novel.

    I highly recommend this book - Enjoy!

    Mediocre performance. Above average writing. Story lacks credibility.

    Although I like Tana French's poetic writing style, I struggle with the extraneous detail and sentimentality. This is my second, and last book of hers I'll read/listen to. (I did both)

    Performance was mediocre at best. Terrible singing, terrible high pitch voices. Poor accents. Didn't make we want more.

    The Likeness

    This narrator’s fake accent is so irritating I only managed the first chapter - I’d rather go and buy the actual book - the plot sounds interesting but that accent?!?

    If you're looking for gold, this is it!!@

    This is a wonderful story that peers into the hearts and relationships of 4 lost souls and a young policewoman trying to regain her soul.
    The narration had just the right touch.

    Not as good as Book 1

    After listening to Book 1, I couldn't wait to read the next book in the series but was disappointed. First, it was a different narrator, with a completely different accent, which made it very hard to connect with the Cassie in the second book. She sounded completely different and it felt like it was a different character.
    Second, the character of Cassie was not consistent with her personality established in the first book. Third, there was little continuity between the two books. Finally, the story bogged down in the middle and the "detective" aspect of the series seemed to be forgotten. It seemed to take forever to get back to the original premise. I did finish the book, but it was a difficult slog. I would be hesitant to read book 3.

    Wtf did I just read??

    I liked in the woods and Cassie was my favorite character, so I was excited to see what this novel would bring. Someone wrote somewhere that Tana French doesn’t write bad novels... I DISAGREE. This book was TERRIBLE. I was expecting a detective novel, but all I got was 22 dull hours of excruciating dialogue between boring unrealistic characters who were pretentious and had NOTHING to say. This story could have been told in about 2 hours. It was much ado about nothing.
    And can we take a moment to be baffled about the fact of how many man hours were put in an under cover operation for the murder of a single Jane Doe??? Why??? Why put anyone under cover?? There wasn’t a criminal organization, just a bunch of messed up people acting like over privileged teenagers who made Jack all of their lives. The characters were so vapid. I’d compare their friendship to a cult, but that would have been more interesting. This was just so dull. They were so tight, and yet they seemed to hate each other, and they couldn’t even figure out that one amongst them was an under cover cop. I’m sorry, but I’m not buying that someone can flawlessly mimic someone they have never met before for several weeks under the scrutiny of people who knew her better than anyone.
    And what about Cassie? Who started off so honest and then suddenly started lying to everyone for NO GOOD REASON. Wtf was that all about. And het bizarre obsession with Lexie and the house? It felt so out of character. Nothing about this novel makes sense. I am gutted I already bought the next two books. I don’t know if I ever want to read any Tana French again. This was bordering on Twilight territory for me. It was just so nonsensical.

    Convoluted and vrebose

    Takes too long to set up the plot. To much musing by the detective. Wise-cracking gets tiresome. First surprise is given away in the book description, which is a pity.

    interesting lifes

    Even for me as a german it was good to follow up. The femal voice is deeper and not nervescratchy at all. Like it a lot and she did a good job in making up the different persons. Even the different slangs were recognisable but understandable.

    The story caches up at the first case, but there is no need to know it. They pick you up, tell you a bit about the ald case so you know where the persons are.

    The hole story is about relationship between humans. very intresting deep in the charakters an very good in the developments of the story, descriptions of the situations.


    I like it a lot. To keep your english or freh it up it's perfect. If you like crime the better it is :-)

    Just awesome

    This is one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. The speaker is great and Tana French's story is intriguing and well written. Listen to "In the Woods" first, this is the sequel.

    Brilliant expertise in shaping characters...

    ... and put them together in this plot.
    I don't know how you went along and I feel embarassed to say it, but I also had to giggle a lot, when the speaker towards the second part let Justin or Rave have their dialogues.
    Of course, it was a tragic ending, but at least not for all of them.
    Great story, too. Perhaps a bit too long, but then again it's nice to watch how Tana French works with carefully chosen words to let everything fall into place.
    One thing I though might object: Cassie could have prevented the tragedy, if she had pulled out earlier. Towards the end I wanted to shout at her: "What the hell are you doing? Leave them alone!"

    I expected more

    Not a bad book but not very gripping either. At times it is quite boring and the story drags on at the end but nothing really happens anymore. I've always expected something big to happen but it didn‘t.

    More then a police story!

    Again a very nice novel from Tana French. Well written and fast moving. Sometimes a bit farfetched, but still possible and with an internal logic. French always has a series of different characters that influence each other; not the usual detective story. Best of all, the book leaves images behind in your memory.
