Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she’s simply this: a truly great writer.”­ —Gillian Flynn
"[Tana French] inspires cultic devotion in readers…most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming. The New Yorker
French is a poet of mood and a master builder of plots.” ­—The Washington Post
One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing. The Wall Street Journal 
French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it’s only growing more miraculous with every book. Salon.com
Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years. The Washington Post
When you read Ms. French — and she has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting — make only one assumption: All of your initial assumptions are wrong The New York Times
“Tana French puts a clever twist on every lonely child’s fantasy of leading a parallel life when she creates an alternate identity for her detective in THE LIKENESS... Cassie is a character — the eternal lost child — you can really care about. New York Times Book Review 
The writing is glorious, and the characters and drama so compelling The Boston Globe*
Savor French’s turns of phrase and simmering suspense until the prospect of finishing shuts all distractions out. The Baltimore Sun
The verve of her writing illuminates the uncanny experience of stepping into someone else’s life. [The Likeness is] a sophisticated thriller. The Dallas Morning News
[Tana French] aces her second novel. The Likeness [is a] nearly pitch-perfect follow-up to her 2007 debut thriller, In the Woods. Entertainment Weekly**
