This is a gripping, beautifully written mystery set in Ireland. The narrator, a detective who was part of an unsolved case as a child, is confronted with his past when another crime takes place in his hometown decades later. I was intrigued to learn that this is the first in a series of loosely linked books, all part of the “Dublin Murder Squad,” and I look forward to reading the next one.
“Tana French’s In the Woods is tangled, dark, and impossible to put down. With a story like a freight train and characters so vivid that I found myself wondering what they were doing while I wasn’t reading it, it’s one of the best books I’ve read this year. In fact, it’s so good that I wish I’d written it – it’s absolutely brilliant.” — Kelly Braffet, author of LAST SEEN LEAVING and JOSIE AND JACK
“With her utterly beautiful and brilliantly evocative prose, Tana French invites us into a murky netherworld so seductive and engrossing that we can’t turn away, even when we try. Ms. French is an extraordinary writer and IN THE WOODS is a stellar debut. “– Lisa Unger, author of the New York Times bestseller BEAUTIFUL LIES and SLIVER OF TRUTH –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
