Waiting on Wednesday: Faithful Place

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


An Irish undercover cop delves into his working-class past. When Frank Mackey left Faithful Place more than 20 years ago, he never imagined returning. Of course, he thought he'd be leaving with his childhood sweetheart Rosie Daly. When Rosie failed to show up at their meeting spot that fateful night, Frank was broken-hearted but decided to go it alone. He's moved on and hasn't looked back--until he receives an urgent call from his sister Jackie, demanding that he return to his childhood home. She's got the one thing in the world that could make him come back: information about Rosie, whose suitcase has been found in a vacant house. This new intelligence throws mysterious shadows on Frank's theories about Rosie's fate. Suddenly, what was once buried history starts coming to light, and Frank isn't quite prepared for the twists his life begins to take.
This title will be released on July 13, 2010.

Just another reminder I need to read TF's books. I have In The Wood on the shelf (hubby read and liked last year).

This sounds like a very intriguing mystery. Good pick.

Jill said...

Gosh, I've heard so much about Tana French...guess it's time to check this author out!

Also, I was so frustrated by not cooking out of my 100+ cookbook collection that I made myself a personal challenge this year to change that!

I'm waiting on lots of good chicklit: Emily Giffin, Jennifer Weiner, and Sophie Kinsella all have books coming out in 2010!!

(Also looking forward to the Tana French. I have loved her previous two).

I just heard about a book today that I've got to check out called "Pearl In China." It's about Pearl Buck's time in China but written as a fictional account by a Chinese author.
