Stephen Hogan similarly takes control of this narration-hard and fast, leaving nothing to chance. Like Kennedy with his perps, it sometimes feels like a stranglehold. The murder of a lovely family in an isolated housing development brings Scorcher many questions and few answers, and each chapter ratchets up the suspense of possibilities. Hogan clearly plays Scorcher's rookie partner as an interesting foil to the veteran's hard line but without easing a rather incessant energy. The writing ebbs and flows, but Hogan makes small misses of subtlety, keeping this performance from perfect.

All her books are psychological thrillers, not fast-paced, not action-packed, but slow-moving and interrogation-heavy, and Broken Harbor sticks to the same format. At beginning, I meant to pronounce it was possibly the most psychological out of her psychological thrillers, and the most crazy-driven.

This started as a five-star read for me. I loved the main characters's voice and it was punchy and dynamic. Then the author introduced the psycho sister and I kept expecting there to be a point to why she was even in the book. I read that the writer loves Donna Tarrt and think maybe she wanted to write a sort of relationship story? It just didn't work, bloating out the story with needless conversations (that can never be plain dialogue as we get endless descriptions before each person utters a word of facial expressions, thoughts, limb positions, looks being thrown this way and that). In all,this book needed to be edited in half. It is neither one thing or another.It doesn't have any feeling of suspense and soon you begin to dislike all the characters too. I loved the main character at the beginning of the book and by the end disliked him intensely.
I thought I was going to be a huge Tana French fan at the beginning of the book but now have no desire to read more of her books. Too drawn out. She needs a better editor.

I've read two other of her books, and loved them, but this one is by far the best. I'm American, and I've loved her books because they describe so well the Irish culture/society/lifestyle of the characters and the location of the story. Very interesting plot, for a detective novel, and I haven't yet (I'm half way through it) figured out who did it. The description of what had been going on in the victims' home is definitely creepy. Her main characters are interesting, and the descriptions of the locale and the action have really kept me interested. I have had the book in the back of my mind all day, as I was doing other things. I can hardly wait to get back to the book this evening at bedtime.

There are two themes to this novel: how a family can disintegrate and the solution of a grisly murder mystery.
In the first part, we have Patrick and Jenny Spain, along with their two children, striking out to establish the family in a new housing development near Broken Harbor. Jenny is an obsessive-compulsive person who wants everything in their new home to be picture perfect. Patrick prides himself on being the family breadwinner and overall handyman who will provide a tip-top home for his wife and children. Things start to go bad when Patrick loses his job. They get even worse when a real or imaginary animal, like a mink or stoat, gets into the house’s structure and Patrick takes extraordinary measures to trap said creature.
The second part is the murder of Patrick, his two children, and a critical attack on Jenny that sends her to the hospital’s intensive care unit. This is when ace detective Michael “Scorcher” Kennedy picks up the case along with his rookie partner, Richie Curran. (We’ve seen Scorcher in another Tana French novel when Frank Mackey, an undercover detective, outperforms Kennedy on a different case.)
Scorcher and Richie apprehend a fellow named Conor who’s been watching the Spain’s house through binoculars. Turns out Conor is a longtime pal of Patrick and Jenny and still carries a crush for her. When Conor is quite willing to sign a confession for the murders, Kennedy thinks the case is in the bag but Richie has doubts. Complicating Scorcher’s work are distractions caused by the bizarre actions of his sister, Dina, and his own tragic memories of Broken Harbor where he lost his mother.
Both parts of this novel eventually come together near the ending. It’s an enjoyable reading experience but I’d call the exercise more of a detailed character study rather than a riveting detective mystery.

This was my first Tana French book, but it won't be my last. She is a fantastic writer. Her dialogue is top notch, so well done that you get a great insight into the characters from the conversations - and most of the book is carried along by conversations vice 3rd person observations. Well-paced, a real page turner. The story is a basic police procedural set in Ireland, where a murder is investigated by two detectives, one an accomplished veteran and the other a younger "rookie." They play well with each other, and as they work through solving a murder involving a family (husband, wife, and two children) the reader is exposed to the unfolding reveal of suspects. You think the case is solved (i.e. they have a murder confession) about halfway through the book, but then another thread starts and you're kept in suspense right through to the end. I did have a sense about who had done the murder, and I was right, but I wouldn't have been surprised if I had been proved wrong. The only negative is that I thought the ending was a bit of a downer, but not so much as to take away from my overall "I liked it a lot" rating. Really enjoyed this author's writing style and fast-paced, dialogue rich approach. Definitely recommend as a summer or winter evening read.
