The Secret Place by Tana French is a detective novel about a dead boy found at an all girls boarding school. It begins in the detective’s point of view; Holly, a girl from the school, brings him a clue a year after the murder. The book jumps back and forth from his point of view to Holly and her friends. The girls’ sections start before the murder and meets in the middle with the detective’s. I enjoyed this book a lot. It felt like such a perfectly thought out book, every detail so intentional. Part of me wished this had been a book club book so I could discuss every little nuance with people. I’m definitely itching to read more by Tana French.
