The west of Ireland looked good to Cal Hooper on the internet. But now that he's living there, the rugged beauty of the region overwhelms him, as it will anyone reading Tana French's The Searcher, an audacious departure for this immensely talented author... Not to be missed. --Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.

One of the greatest crime novelists writing today (Vox) weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking how to tell right from wrong in a world where neither is simple, and what we stake on that decision.
