Broken Harbor Overview

Tana French’s Broken Harbor follows Detective Garda Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy and his junior partner Richie Curran as they work the Spain case, the brutal murder of a seemingly happy family in an abandoned housing estate. As Kennedy and Richie investigate, they learn not only the devastating effects of the effects of the 2008 economic collapse on ordinary, hardworking people, but also about the limits of their own ideals. This fourth thriller in the Dublin Murder Squad series — each of which is told from a different investigator’s point of view — presents readers with not only a gripping thriller, but also an extended meditation on the meaning of family, consumerism, gender roles, and the morality of breaking the rules.
