What The Likeness is about:
Cassie Maddox return to unravel a case even more sinister and enigmatic than the first. Six months after the events of In the Woods, an urgent telephone call beckons Cassie to a grisly crime scene. The victim looks exactly like Cassie and carries ID identifying herself as Alexandra Madison, an alias Cassie once used. Suddenly, Cassie must discover not only who killed this girl, but, more importantly, who is this girl?
Wow! Tana French is blowing my socks off, people!! Her story drew me in and never relinquished its hold on me until the very last page. There were moments that I did have to suspend belief only in the fact that Cassie and Lexie looked and acted so much alike that none of her friends questioned whether it was her or not???!! Beyond that little quibble, there was nothing else that kept this book from being a 5-star read for me. French creates an atmosphere that has the hairs on my neck standing up on end.
Recommend? Hell, yeah!
