The Likeness by Tana French is a next-level murder mystery that doubles as a psychological commentary on misguided, modern society. Detective Cassie Maddox goes undercover as a murder victim who happens to look exactly like her in order to solve a crime. The author “explores themes of self-invention, deception, and the ways truth can emerge” in this fresh take on a classic genre.
