The sensational new novel from "one of the most talented crime writers alive". (The Washington Post)
The photo on the card shows a boy who was found murdered, a year ago, in the grounds of a girls' boarding school in the leafy suburbs of Dublin. The caption says I know who killed him.
Detective Stephen Moran has been waiting for his chance to get a foot in the door of Dublin's Murder Squad - and one morning, 16-year-old Holly Mackey brings him this photo. "The Secret Place", a board where the girls at St Kilda's School can pin up their secrets anonymously, is normally a mishmash of gossip and covert cruelty, but today someone has used it to reignite the stalled investigation into the murder of handsome, popular Chris Harper. Stephen joins forces with the abrasive Detective Antoinette Conway to find out who and why.
Editors Select, September 2014 - With vacation planned at the end of the month, I excitedly tucked away my copy of The Secret Place knowing that it would be the perfect beach book. And halfway through, with the sounds of waves crashing in the background, I've been transported to St. Kilda's School in the posh suburbs of Dublin. Tana French's latest Dublin Murder Squad mystery explores the minds of killers and – perhaps equally as frightening – teenaged girls. Like her previous books, it's a psychological whodunit set in a distinct time and place. And the local Irish flair makes it perfect for audio. Tricia, Audible Editor
