    I could not put it down

    I sewed us together at the edges with my own hands

    I rate this as one of Tana French’s best books, it can stand on its own because of mood and setup.

    • Narrated By Hugh Lee

    In Broken Harbour, a ghost estate outside Dublin - half-built, half-inhabited, half-abandoned - two children and their father are dead. The mother is on her way to intensive care. Scorcher Kennedy is given the case because he is the Murder squad's star detective. At first he and his rookie partner, Richie, think this is a simple one: Pat Spain was a casualty of the recession, so he killed his children, tried to kill his wife Jenny, and finished off with himself.
