The Searcher

I don’t listen to audiobooks very often because they take HOURS to complete, but I have taken up walking and thought having a good book to listen to would be a nice bonus. Tana French’s The Searcher was on my TBR list and available through Libby, so I took it on. 19 hours is a lot of walking (and hard to do before the library book was due), but coupled with a four hour car ride, I was able to just complete it. “Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous secrets.” (Amazon) I enjoyed The Searcher and the reader was excellent, but overall, I thought the book was a bit too long. The character development was good and the story interesting, but not amazing.
