A beautifully written "fish out of water" story. Retired Chicago detective, Cal Hooper, moves to a small town in Ireland, looking to create a new life after his unexpected divorce. Soon after he arrives, a young teenager asks Cal to find the teen's missing older brother. The story builds very slowly, but I was glad I didn't quit reading. While Cal's search for a missing young man drives the plot, this is primarily a character-driven novel. Tana French is an American who emigrated to Ireland, and she uses her insights as an outsider entering Irish culture to create obstacles for Cal. Highly recommended.
