Critical Praise

[IN THE WOODS] plies dark, shuddery suspense to the breaking point... [a] thoroughly taunting suspense novel.

New York Daily News

Tana French promises two whodunits for the price of one in her harrowing first novel. Drawn by the grim nature of her plot and the lyrical ferocity of her writing, even smart people who should know better will be able to lose themselves in these dark woods.

—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

Readers who like their hardboiled police procedurals with an international flair will love Irish author Tana French’s debut novel... IN THE WOODS is as creepily imaginative as it gets.
