The Secret Place

Cover: 'The Secret Place'

Staff Review: "The Secret Place" by Tana French


Tana French is my favorite mystery author, so I highly recommend the fifth book in her Dublin Murder Squad series! St. Kilda's, a boarding school for girls outside of Dublin, has a bulletin board called "The Secret Place" where the girls can express their deepest secrets anonymously. It is usually a place for gossip and rumors, but one day a photo shows up of a murdered boy with the caption, "I know who killed him." Detectives are called in and are immediately drawn in to the underground world of teenage girls, a place full of secrets, lies, and danger.

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction, mystery
