Il thriller non è il mio genere,ma devo dire che questo romanzo mi è davvero piaciuto. Lettura scorrevole,trama intrigante,colpi di scena...davvero molto ben strutturato. Lettura consigliata!
i've always wondered what it would be like to encounter my 'double'; what it would be like to live her life, if i ever got the chance. would i lose myself or my sense of identity by trying to be someone i'm not? would i ever be able to be myself again and get on with my own life? some secrets, like pandora's box, are meant not to be opened....Continua
Cassie is an undercover agent. Her boss and she create a complete new persona for her, and when the undercover operation ends, that's the end of the newly created person. Or is it? Years later Cassie is called to a murder scene where she looks upon a victim who is the likeness of her. To further the mystery, the victim is carrying the identification of Cassie's fictitious persona. To describe the plot that unravels after that would be difficult. It would sound a bit preposterous. However, Tana French makes it work. I found myself hoping that Cassie would just disappear into the comforting world of the victim's friends. French gives just enough clues to keep you wondering and predicting, but not so much as to give everything away. In fact, at the end there are a few things unsaid, but definitely inferred and left to the imagination. A great read!...Continua
NEW INTERVIEW FROM THE ENTERTAINMENT CRITIC: EDGAR AWARD WINNING AUTHOR TANA FRENCH ON HER NEW BOOK, THE LIKENESS
Please check out a brand new interview by James Myers, The Entertainment Critic, of Edgar Award Winning (Best New Book)Author, Tana French on her brand new best seller, The Likeness.
Tana French has lived in Ireland, Italy, the United States, and Malawi. She trained as a professional actress at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
About The Likeness: The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestselling psychological thriller In the Woods.
“Six months after the events of In the Woods, Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to recover. She's transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam O'Neill, but she's too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a young woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girl's ID says her name is Lexie Madison—the identity Cassie used years ago as an undercover detective—and she looks exactly like Cassie.
With no leads, no suspects, and no clue to Lexie's real identity, Cassie's old undercover boss, Frank Mackey, spots the opportunity of a lifetime. They can say that the stab wound wasn't fatal and send Cassie undercover in her place to find out information that the police never would and to tempt the killer out of hiding. At first Cassie thinks the idea is crazy, but she is seduced by the prospect of working on a murder investigation again and by the idea of assuming the victim's identity as a graduate student with a cozy group of friends.
As she is drawn into Lexie's world, Cassie realizes that the girl's secrets run deeper than anyone imagined. Her friends are becoming suspicious, Sam has discovered a generations-old feud involving the old house the students live in, and Frank is starting to suspect that Cassie's growing emotional involvement could put the whole investigation at risk. Another gripping psychological thriller featuring the headstrong protagonist we've come to love, from an author who has proven that she can deliver.”
