This book started very slowly for me, wondering what was up with a retired Chicago policeman relocating to rural Ireland and detailing his day-to-day activities as a plot. Trying to train the rooks was probably the most interesting activity for Cal in the first part. But life got more complicated with a local boy searching for his missing brother, a storekeeper who wanted to set him up with a local widow and a neighbor who seemed to be looking out for him.
The descriptions of the Irish countryside and natural environment were beautiful and evocative. The contrast with Chicago was often referred to in a positive way and reinforced Cal's decision to move. He was tempted at times to return to the States, but had little to return to. Searching for Trey's brother gave him a goal in his life and the relationship with Trey substituted for his family.
As the investigation progresses it becomes obvious that there are underlying tensions in the community and Cal has to reassess his relationships with everyone. What fascinated me most was the way his behavior changed in relation to Trey and Lena vis a vis how he interacted with his daughter and wife.
Very insightful presentation and fascinating mystery. ( )

I read Tana French's first book, In the Woods, and liked it, but not well enough to follow through with the ensuing books in the series. (And as I recall, there was a major problem with a plot point that really bothered me, although I no longer remember the details.) I think this one is a stand-alone, and it was ok, but again, not good enough to make me rush out to read more books by Tana French.

Cal, a retired Chicago cop, has moved to a small Irish village where he is restoring a derelict cottage while he lives in it. When he catches a young teen spying on him, he learns that the teen's brother disappeared several months before, and the teen would like Cal to help find the brother. Cal reluctantly agrees, and then starts uncovering the secrets of this bucolic village, which was not so innocent as he had a first thought.

Fans of the author will perhaps underrate this book, as it lacks the police procedural and recognizable characters of her Dublin Murder Squad books. I like those books too. But I think The Searcher is a grand book, as its Irish characters might say, from the subtlety of the writing, its character portrayals, to the story's believability. ( )

Vividly atmospheric, and of course French writes like a dream. It's literary and more of a character study really. And such great characters, especially the protagonist, an American ex-cop who retires to a small Irish town and gets caught up in the comings and goings, and gossip, amongst the town's inhabitants, but also...a mystery. Duh Duh DUH! The mystery aspect was fairly perfunctory, and a bit prosaic really. But French nails the details, evokes a mood and vivid imagery. And again, her writing is top shelf, a treat in and of itself. That can't be overstated as a selling point. The ending for me, while light on conventional thrills, was very satisfactory. For those who are unafflicted by ADD, who appreciate well drawn characters and setting rather than "all plot, all the time"...it could be a great read. ( )

Many twists and turns but the best thing I can say is I desperately want to know more about what happens next for the characters! ( )
