Dublin Murder Squad6 titles in series
Meet the Dublin Murder Squad: brilliant and tormented detectives who are driven to solve complex, terrible crimes.
Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series is the perfect blend of police procedural and psychological thriller. In each of her page-turning and character-driven novels, French follows a different Dublin Murder Squad police detective as he or she solves a murder case, set against the atmospheric backdrop of Dublin, Ireland. Detectives are tasked with uncovering the truths behind a murder that will also reveal difficult truths about themselves.
The Dublin Murder Squad series is highly acclaimed and has won multiple awards, including Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, and Barry awards. Steph Cha of the Los Angeles Times wrote, "It's impossible to get tired of Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad novels." And Hillary Kelly of Vulture named Tana French "our best living mystery writer."
Every case in the Dublin Murder Squad series unfolds from the perspective of a different detective, so Audible listeners will have the pleasure of listening to a different narrator for each installment. Every accomplished narrator—Steven Crossley, Heather O’Neill, and Tim Gerard Reynolds among them—adds additional layers of personality and characterization to each detective. Narrator Stephen Hogan, whose performance so embodies the emotion and tension of Detective Scorcher in the fourth Murder Squad novel, Broken Harbor, returns to the mic as Detective Stephen Moran in the fifth installment, The Secret Place, which he co-narrates with Lara Hutchinson.
Each Dublin Murder Squad novel is loosely connected to the others yet covers its own separate crime, characters, and storyline. Feel free to listen to the audiobooks in any order; however, there are minor references to previous novels in some of the stories. If you plan to listen to the entire series, start from the beginning with French’s stunning debut novel, In the Woods.
