    Description

    Best Book of 2020 by New York Times, NPR, and New York Post

    "This hushed suspense tale about thwarted dreams of escape may be her best one yet.... Its own kind of masterpiece." (Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post)

    "A new Tana French is always cause for celebration.... Read it once for the plot; read it again for the beauty and subtlety of French's writing." (Sarah Lyall, The New York Times)

    Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After 25 years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.

    "One of the greatest crime novelists writing today" (Vox) weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking how to tell right from wrong in a world where neither is simple, and what we stake on that decision.

    Commentaires

    “A slow-burn stunner that will keep readers turning the pages late into the night. Recommend to the author’s legions of fans, as well as those who enjoy crime fiction set in small towns like Julia Keller’s or Jane Harper’s novels.” (Library Journal, starred review)

    “In another stand-alone, French again displays impressive versatility...French skillfully builds suspense...a fine thriller, but also a moving story of an unlikely friendship that grows from refinishing a ramshackle desk to rebuilding two nearly broken lives.” (Booklist)

    “Deliver[s] plenty of twists, shocking revelations, and truly chilling moments.” (Kirkus)

    WONDERFULLY DREARY IRISH ATMOSPHERE & STORY

    I was drawn to this book for three reasons 1) it’s a Tana French mystery, 2) the main character is a former Chicago cop - I was born & raised in CHICAGO & knew several police officers as I am a former Paralegal Assistant & 3) It takes place in Ireland - a place I always thought I’d love to live. All my expectations were fulfilled. While Roger Clark is not one of my favorite narrators, the story grabbed me & pulled me in immediately. The setting is richly described as the isolated, often dreary place it is with air so clean & fresh that merely breathing it doesn’t seem enough. Roger Clark’s Irish accent of some characters is spot on. That’s his redeeming quality to my ears. The story is amazing. It’s a bit long but worth sticking with it. There is some profanity in the book so be aware if that’s a deal breaker for you. After all, the main character is a rough & tough former Chicago cop. It is definitely written from a man’s man point of view. Tana French is so good at that! Another great Tana French novel. I loved this story!

    Narration is so awful I returned the book.

    I’m so disappointed! The narration made it impossible for me to focus on the story. Instead, I kept hearing myself say, “Make it stop....” I returned the book before finishing chapter 3. Can we have a do-over, please?

    Disappointing compared to her other books

    It pains me to give Tana French a 3-star review. I’ve loved all of her other books, even The Witch Elm even though it was an odd sort of departure for her. But this one? It just doesn’t work for me. The main character is a cop from Chicago, where he was a cop for 25 years but apparently never shed his North Carolina accent or taste for country music (I wonder how that went over in Chi-town?). French missed the mark on a few language/culture things of Americans too, and it makes me wonder why she didn’t stick with the Irish characters she does so well - there are plenty of books about American ex-cops already. This ex-cop is grouchy and newly divorced, but there’s very little to explain either except that he’s “exhausted.” As for the mystery and investigation? There’s nothing even remotely exciting here. And leaps of thoughts are made with no explanation - so that I had to make sure I hadn’t skipped half a chapter by mistake more than once. The book's one redeeming point was Trey, a kid who latches on to Cal.

    I’m bummed that this was so disappointing. I hope French picks the Dublin Murder Squad series back up again for the next one.

    Don’t think Tana French wrote this

    One of 5 worst books I have ever listened to and I have heard around 700. I have relished her other books so forced myself to listen all the way through this one. It was dreary, dull, full of meanness and hearing the words kid and mamma repeatedly made it even worse. How he made it as a Chicago policeman for 25 years is astounding as he couldn’t detect the most basic thing.
    Do not waste a credit as it is pure boredom.

    who even wrote this ????

    Slogged through to the end. Unlikable, contrived, stereotyped characters, condescending explainations, so disappointed. (Loved DMS)

    Tana French Scores Again

    This is not a Dublin Murder Squad. It is a excellent story well narrated and evocative of rural Ireland and some interesting characters.

    It was an ok book. Bad American accent though.

    For some reason the narrator/author kept referring to everyone's mother as ( mamma ). Like all southerners don't say it that much or calls there mother this. It honestly drove me crazy. The American accent wasn't to great, but the story was awesome like usual

    Captivating

    I normally listen to books while working. But I find that difficult with a Tana French. I often find myself motionless, engrossed in the story. The Searcher was no different. The narration was obviously in contrast with the rest of her books, because it's an American's. That isn't any slight to the narrator, I think he did well,. It's just not the same. The plot may not have been as strong as her others, but Ms. French is such an amazing storyteller, it didn't matter. Upon finishing the book, I had my normal reaction to this author. More please.

    Not up to par

    I buy Tana French’s work as soon as it comes out. This was not as catchy a mystery or as interesting a search as her other mysteries. RElationships could have been more developed as well as the story line.

    Tara French keeps you proofing your own heart and tolerances ...

    as usually Tana French tells not only a twisted crime story but also and very much about feelings and behaviours of very different kinds of persons. In her unique and sensible way she keeps us, the readers, wondering in search of our own judgmental way of living ... as a listener I had to get used of the Americans irish accents, but in the end liked to recognize each figure by voice immediately ... very much.

    Tolles Buch, wunderbare Geschichte

    Endlich einmal wieder eine echte Geschichte anstatt das Abarbeiten von Erfolgsvorlagen. Originell, und berührend mit fein gezeichneten, detaillierten Charakteren gepaart mit einem ausgezeichneten Leser.

    Excellent ingredients in a thin soup lacking spice

    Yes, she can narrate, yes, she can develop characters, but in the end you wonder if the narrating and character developing wasn't a bit overdone and more effort should have been invested in the story itself. It was a well told but in the end boring narrative with a finale lacking everything making the whole thing worth reading. Probably great for fans, but I won't become one.

    Good voice, boring story

    I usually love Tana French and this book is very atmospheric and a good character study. However, the story did not catch me, it dragged on and there was not enough to it. The voice of the reader is gtrad though, I really enjoyed listening to him.

    Great Story. Great Voice.

    Just could´nt stop listening! Even if the story was´nt so alive and thrilling (which it is!) I would have relished it from the first word to the very last. The voice and rhythm of Roger Clark suites it so well ... I guess that guy could read the telephone book to me and I would enjoy it.
    But of course it was much better than that - Tana French made me see and hear and smell everything that happened and led me to a beautyful and unexpected and yet very plausible end.
    Thanks to both of them.

    Hin und hergerissen

    Das Buch war einerseits fesselnd, andererseits besonders in den letzten Hörstunden für mich sehr unglaubwürdig. Ich will keine Spoiler geben, darum nur: Cal nimmt das alles so hin? Für sich selbst, für Brendan und für Trey? Wirklich? Und ein Hund am Ende soll die Psyche nach einigem Trauma wieder ins Lot bringen? Ausserdem war er lange Polizist und kennt sich aus mit legalities und resources. Ich mochte das Ende nicht und konnte mich auch nicht damit trösten, dass im echten Leben vieles ungesühnt/ungeklärt bleibt. Wie soll eine 13 jährige mit der Info, die auf sie einströmt umgehen. Absurde Erwartungshaltung. Vielleicht hat mich auch die macho Leserstimme extra irritiert.

    Great reading/listening experience

    Rarely have I found a reader to fit the story as well as he does here. Greatly written, believable characters, athmospheric, exciting story that I really enjoyed listening to. Feels like I just spent a few days in rural Ireland.

    Most paranoid cop / ex cop I've ever encountered

    An interesting read, but the ex cop is scared of his own shadow ;) Most paranoid cop I've ever encountered in a book... Sees danger everywhere all the time.
