CBR III Review #43: The Likeness by Tana French
Cassie Maddox from French's debut In the Woods is back in The Likeness. No longer working with her old partner Cassie has gone back to the Domestic Violence unit but a unique crime gets her called back to the murder squad and undercover work. The body of a young woman is found outside Dublin and she bears an uncanny and virtually identical resemblance to Cassie. The police cover up the murder and report it as an attack and Cassie steps back into the life of the murdered woman to try and catch the killer. However, Cassie starts to fall in love with this woman's life and she starts to have a hard time separating her feelings from the case.
