Faithful Place, Tana French Read along Wrap Up

I Should explain that Faithful Place is a Ireland challenge, read along, hosted by Books and Movies  I needed this challenge to just get me onto reading other authors, other than Agatha, you know I love her. So I jumped in. ..I read the whole book in a few days, I'm just not good at waiting to see what happens, I posted my three previous thoughts earlier this month. 

My Thoughts.
I was very anxious in this book, it was so difficult to put it down  and wait for the scheduled reading that I didn't.  I read and then wrote my posts and used post options to publish.  She had me until chapter 21 and then, I thought you've got to be kidding there must be more, is that all, there must be another twist to this whole thing.  I was sort of hoping that Rosie's dad, who knew she wasn't his child, did it to stop her from sleeping with her 1/2 brother. Am I sick. Or Frank's Da, who knew Rosie was his daughter and tried to stop her. Or he was just drunk and got violent.    Anyway, I'm done. Frank is not as cool as I had first pictured him, so he gets cast differently, it's going to be Nicolas Cage, I'm keeping Quinn for a more appealing role.  I hate that he(Frank)  didn't step in to save Holly sooner, she's a child Frank, not a witness and he's her uncle you dork!  And Shay well that just stupid to stick around for what?  Get help you idiots.  I don't know..  this isn't the 50s where this was a big deal, women leave their husbands who are abusive. And to have  a character, such as Shay, who is obviously hostile be the "murderer" that's just not very creative.  How disappointing.  I was so ticked off that I've passed on Tana's first two books, unread, to my niece, maybe I 'm missing something.  Now I really need to read an Irish author's works that doesn't have the family living on the dol.  How does this country exist if this is the norm, is this the norm?

So the new cast of this  "murder (not so mysterious) mystery is.

I've had to rethink the whole cast and so far, it's Nick Gage as Frank, Stacey Keach as his dad and I'm not sure about the rest.

My goodness. I've no idea what you're talking about but even I'm on tenterhooks. I think my psyche is too delicate for this particular read, dear Irene. Thanks for the warning.

I need to read all (3) by French even though people say this one stands on its own. I need to get in the right mood for it.
