Inhaltsangabe:

A New York Times bestseller and quintessential Tana French thriller--a damaged hero, an unspeakable crime, and an intricately plotted mystery--the novel that "proves anew that [Tana French] is one of the most talented crime writers alive." (The Washington Post). Don't miss Tana French's newest novel, The Trespasser, available now

Mick "Scorcher" Kennedy plays by the book and plays hard. That's why he's the Dublin Murder Squad's top detective, and that's what puts the biggest case of the year in his hands.

On one of the half-abandoned "luxury" developments that litter Ireland, Patrick Spain and his two young children have been murdered. His wife, Jenny, is in intensive care. At first, Scorcher thinks it's going to be an easy solve, but too many small things can't be explained: the half-dozen baby monitors pointed at holes smashed in the Spains' walls, the files erased from the family's computer, the story Jenny told her sister about a shadowy intruder slipping past the house's locks. And this neighborhood--once called Broken Harbor--holds memories for Scorcher and his troubled sister Dina: childhood memories that Scorcher thought he had tightly under control.


Winner of Ireland AM Crime Fiction Book of the Year

Rezension: "Salon.com"'s Laura Miller has this advice for anyone who has not yet read EVERY Tana French novel, "Just go out and get them right now."
-- NPR's Weekend Edition

"Part police procedural, part psychological thriller, all fun." -- People ("Great Summer Reads")

"Every bit as piercingly brilliant as its predecessors . . . Readers can brace themselves for the gritty details of a typical police procedural and then sit back and savor the poetry." -- Chicago Tribune

"Tana French describes "Broken Harbor," her latest thriller set in Dublin, as a 'chain-linked' book, because a secondary character from an earlier novel becomes 'the narrator of the next.' This is the world according to Mick 'Scorcher' Kennedy. He has his murder squad's highest solve rate, earning him the lead in a triple family murder near the seaside at Broken Harbor. Scorcher's narration is commanding and compelling, cynical and honest, and it'll keep you riveted to this book. Murder is 'a unique crime, ' says Scorcher, 'the only one that makes us ask why'... The novel is a complex psychological procedural, following Scorcher and his rookie partner, Richie, through their investigation, each step punctuated with Scorcher's teachable moments like 'Nothing can trip you up like compassion.'"
-- The Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"French's plotting is gripping and original, but perhaps most impressive is her facility with the psychological implications of murder. There is evil at work in this book, but it's an evil that can be found within human nature rather than contrived to give the hero something to grapple with. Also on display is a bleak landscape of an Ireland hit particularly hard by the recession."
-- The Daily Beast

"French is known for creating detectives that are as complex as the mysteries they solve."
-- The Millions.com, "Most Anticipated: The Great Second-Half 2012 Book Preview"

"French's eloquently slow-burning fourth Dublin murder squad novel shows her at the top of her game . . . As usual, French excels at drawing out complex character dynamics."


"Each of French's novels offers wonderfully complex and fully realized characters . . . French has never been less than very good, but "Broken Harbor" is a spellbinder."
-- Booklist (starred review)

"A mystery that is perfectly in tune with the times . . . [French] continues to distinguish herself with this fourth novel, marked by psychological acuteness and thematic depth . . . There are complications, deliberations and a riveting resolution." -- Kirkus (starred review)

"French's deft psychological thriller, focusing on parallel stories of mentally ill mothers and the tragedy of depression, offers a nuanced take on family relationships that will satisfy her fans and readers of psychological thrillers and police procedurals."

I ve been enthusiastically telling everyone who will listen to read Tana French. She is, without a doubt, my favorite new mystery writer. Her novels are poignant, compelling, beautifully written, and wonderfully atmospheric. Just start reading the first page. You ll see what I mean.
Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

Broken Harbor proves anew that [Tana French] is one of the most talented crime writers alive.
The Washington Post

Ms. French has come to be regarded as one of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing. She constructs her plots in a dreamlike, meandering fashion that seems at odds with genre's fixed narrative conventions...Ms. French undercuts expectations at every turn. The victims begin to look less like victims; the case starts to unravel and the lead detective makes compromises that could ruin him.
--The Wall Street Journal
Ms. French creates haunting, damaged characters who have been hit hard by some cataclysm...This may sound like a routine police procedural. But like Gillian Flynn s Gone Girl, this summer s other dagger-sharp display of mind games, Broken Harbor is something more... she has irresistibly sly ways of toying with readers expectations
--Janet Maslin, The New York Times
So much of the pleasure inherent in reading these novels is in trying to figure out where things are going and being constantly surprised, not to mention thoroughly spooked. I predict Broken Harbor will be on more than one Best of 2012 list it s definitely at the top of mine.
--Associated Press
a tour de force.
--Laura Miller, Salon.com

In most crime novels, cood cops and decent people court tragedy by disobeying the rules of society. But the stories French tells reflect our own savage times: the real trouble starts when you play fair and do exactly as you re told.
--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
French's psychologically rich novels are so much more satisfying than your standard issue police procedural...French brilliantly evokes the isolation of a Gothic landscape out of the Brontes and transposes it to a luxury suburban development gone bust. The cause, of course, is Ireland's economic free fall the Celtic Tiger turned needy cub and, like all superior detective fiction, French's novels are as much social criticism as they are whodunit.
Maureen Corrigan, NPR s Fresh Air
French ...[is] drawn not just to the who but also to the why those bigger mysteries about the human weaknesses that drive somebody to such inhuman brutality. What really gives Broken Harbor its nerve-rattling force is her exploration of events leading up to the murders, rendered just as vividly as the detectives scramble to solve them.
--Entertainment Weekly (A- rating)
These four novels have instated Ms. French as one of crime fiction s reigning grand dames a Celtic tigress... It s not the fashion in literary fiction these days to address such things as the psychological devastation that a fallout of the middle class can wreak on those who have never known anything else, and Ms. French does it with aplomb and a headless sparrow and dozens of infrared baby monitors.
--The Washington Times
Broken Harbour is a novel, of course, but it's also a headline...it's good to see contemporary literature engaging a crisis that has had such an impact on the lives of so many. This is, in fact, what good literature does. It makes us look at our world and perhaps forces us to see what we have chosen to ignore.
