I’m reading/listening to the sixth book in Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series. This is the last one — so far. I’ve loved every book in this Irish mystery series. I do hope Ms. French keeps going. Here’s how the book begins:


My ma used to tell me stories about my da. The first one OI remember, he was an Egyptian prince who wanted to marry her and stay in Ireland foreveer, only his family made him go home to marry an Arabian princess.

What do you think?

Would you keep reading?

    I’ve never been disappointed by this author; I’d read more.

  3. This series is on my list of those I must begin–I bought the first book a while back for that reason. Glad to hear you’re enjoying it, Margot!

    I like Tana French. I’d try this one.

  5. I have the author’s first book on my Kindle (Into the Woods), still waiting…and as much as I love the sound of the other books, like this one, I am trying not to move forward until I begin at the beginning.

    Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine:
