It's possibly the most perfect post-crash setting for a slice of genuinely disturbing horror: an Irish housing estate built during the height of the boom years, now mostly empty and abandoned, half-finished, horribly symbolic. In Ocean View, Brian... more.
Mick "Scorcher" Kennedy, the brash cop from Tana Frenchâ€™s bestselling Faithful Place, plays by the book and plays hard. Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s made him the Murder squadâ€™s top detectiveâ€”and thatâ€™s what puts the biggest case of the year into his hands.
On one of the half-built, half-abandoned "luxury" developments that litter Ireland, Patrick Spain and his two young children are dead. His wife, Jenny, is in intensive care.
At first, Scorcher and his rookie partner, Richie, think itâ€™s going to be an easy solve. But too many small things canâ€™t be explained. The half dozen baby monitors, their cameras pointing at holes smashed in the Spainsâ€™ walls. The files erased from the Spainsâ€™ computer. The story Jenny told her sister about a shadowy intruder who was slipping past all the locks.
And Broken Harbor holds memories for Scorcher. Seeing the case on the news sends his sister Dina off the rails again, and sheâ€™s resurrecting something that Scorcher thought he had tightly under control: what happened to their family one summer at Broken Harbor, back when they were children.
With her signature blend of police procedural and psychological thriller, Frenchâ€™s new novel goes full throttle with a heinous crime, creating her most complicated detective character and her best book yet.
