FAITHFUL PLACE by Tana French - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK
See all titles by Tana French.
The hotly anticipated third novel of the Dublin murder squad from
the New York Times bestselling author
Back in 1985,
Frank Mackey was nineteen, growing up poor in Dublin's inner city, and
living crammed into a small flat with his family on Faithful Place. But
he had his sights set on a lot more. He and Rosie Daly were all ready to
run away to London together, get married, get good jobs, break away
from factory work and poverty and their old lives.
But on the
winter night when they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank
took it for granted that she'd dumped him-probably because of his
alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He
never went home again.
Neither did Rosie. Everyone thought she
had gone to England on her own and was over there living a shiny new
life. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a
fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank is going home
whether he likes it or not.
Getting sucked in is a lot easier
than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark
tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want
him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes
him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective
now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out
what happened to Rosie Daly-and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to
himself or anyone else, to get the job done.
