Detective Cassie Maddox, gets a call from her boyfriend to come out to a crime scene. The panic on his voice tells her this isn't going to be just any crime scene. Inside an old abandoned cottage, the remains of a young girl are found with a stab wound and a very familiar face. She could be her identical twin.
An unlikely undercover investigation into the murder of the girl, puts Cassie in a unique situation- Living the life of a the girl amongst many possible murderers. Who amongst her four housemates know that she can't possibly be still alive?
Another great story by Tana French. I was completely engrossed in the lives of Lexie Madison and her odd group of friends. It was a little hard to believe that such an investigation would actually be legal or done, but it did make for an entertaining read. Very interesting "sequel". Yes, Detective Maddox is back, but she is in a completely different place than in the previous book and it really is the state of her psyche after the events in In The Woods that are continued into The Likeness.
Can't wait to get started on the next book which follows another character that was introduced in this one.
