What other readers are saying about this title:
Detective Cassie Maddox, now working in the Domestic Violence unit, is pulled back to her undercover roots when a murdered woman is found who bears an eerie resemblance to Cassie and, worse, a woman who was using one of Cassie’s aliases from years back. Like her brilliant In the Woods, French’s The Likenes is a slow-moving, satisfying read that creates atmosphere through tiny revelations. It is a pleasure to sit down with and explore over an extended period of time, right up to its nail-biting conclusion.

Cassie Maddox, still reeling from a recent case, the loss of her partner and departure from the murder squad is called away from her new assignment in domestic violence to the scene of a murder and a body that looks just like her. Even more surreal, the deceased went by the name of an undercover persona invented by Cassie for a past operation. Cassie is persuaded to go undercover as the deceased, saying she had survived and she enters Whitethorn house and a "family" of graduate students. As she finds herself slipping easily into their routine and relationships her grip on herself and her assignment begins to loosen. Even after she is "made" by one of the housemates she insists on staying to complete the operation. I liked this book better than In the woods. The other book seemed to build and build to a big letdown but this book came through. Good tension, good characters and good story of police work that almost goes wrong but ultimately succeeds.
