Review: The Likeness

The Likeness The Likeness by Tana French
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Low price, bought this as the first book in the series and this one are filmed as a limited event series for TV according to this article . Already own the first book.

Like the first book not very suspenseful. Interesting idea, but the hype about Tana French fails to convince me. Took me too long to read, and while I own #05 and #06 (due to their low price or a promo), I am reluctant to read more.
Recommended for fans of Ireland. No page-turner. 3.5 stars rounded down to 3, as this is no debut nor a first in a series, rather more of the same and while interesting not really a crime but more a slow burning mystery.
If the other books also get filmed - the limited TV-Series with 8 episodes is based on the first two books in the Dublin Murder Squad series -, I might change my mind and buy and read more, but for now I shelf that under "ok, but not my cup-a-tea".
