Who, in their right mind, would turn down a good murder mystery story? Not me, that’s for sure. The moment a television adaptation of Tana French’s beloved Dublin Murder Squad book series was announced, I knew I’d be first on the scene, and now it’s (almost) here! Dublin Murders, as the TV series is officially known, debuts November 10 on Starz. Based on French’s award-winning novels In the Woods and The Likeness, the show’s eight-episode first season will find detectives Rob Ryan and Cassie Maddox solving cases that bump up against their dark, mysterious pasts. With talented Irish actors Killian Scott and Sarah Greene bringing the two lead characters to life, I can already tell I’m going to want more out of this moody, enthralling show than a single season. But even if that’s all we get, I’m not worried, because these six excellent novels make for perfect companions to the Dublin Murders TV show.
