Broken Harbour by Tana French

Although on the face of it this is a ‘detective procedural’ crime novel, like much of the best of this genre it is as much about place and time as it is about a crime. In this instance the place and time is Ireland after the financial crash of 2008; a landscape of half-built ghost estates populated by people struggling to come to terms with the end of their dreams of financial security and the prospect of long-term unemployment.

Tana French’s fourth novel features a detective coping with his own demons as he tries to untangle a triple killing which looks to be a murder-suicide. The story keeps you guessing and the atmosphere is beautifully evoked.
