I thought I wrote this review a while ago, but the story is fresh in my mind. Frank is a living, breathing man and a story about him was welcomed. Faithful Place explains much about why he makes his decisions. I can't wait to see what he will do next.
Tana French's books are not cheerful. They tend to be rather dark. The family described here is abysmally disfunctional, but in a sad, sweet way filled with love. It held my attention to the very end, and I hope Francis Mackey's life improves.
Tana French grew up in Ireland, Italy, the United States, and Malawi. She is a trained actress.
