ôAn absolutely mesmerizing read. . . . Tana French is simply this: a truly great writer.ö ùGillian Flynn Detective Stephen Moran has been waiting for his chance to join DublinÆs Murder Squad when sixteen-year-old Holly Mackey arrives in his office with a photo of a popular boy whose body was found at a girlsÆ boarding school a year earlier. The photo had been posted at ôThe Secret Place,ö the schoolÆs anonymous gossip board, and the caption says ôI KNOW WHO KILLED HIM.ö Stephen joins with Detective Antoinette Conway to reopen the caseùbeneath the watchful eye of HollyÆs father, fellow detective Frank Mackey. With the clues leading back to HollyÆs close-knit group of friends, to their rival clique, and to the tangle of relationships that bound them all to the murdered boy, the private underworld of teenage girls turns out to be more mysterious and more dangerous than the detectives imagined.
