Hailed as the ‘First Lady of Irish Crime’ by the Independent, Tana French made her name with her internationally acclaimed first novel, In the Woods which went on to become the first in her popular Dublin-set Murder Squad series. Known for her genre-defying, psychologically interrogative fiction, French has been compared with novelists including P.D. James and Ruth Rendell. Her latest book, The Wych Elm, is her first standalone novel.
A new direction for author Tana French that has already got reviewers abuzz - Stephen King calls it an ‘extraordinary… meditation on luck - the good, the bad and the extremely ugly’ - The Wych Elm is a standalone treat that’s full of the unexpected. Following one man’s descent from untroubled ease to the midst of paranoid mystery, it's an inventive thriller that grips to the final page.
