Woodn't you like to read this book?

Today’s Book: In the Woods, Tana French

The plot: This mystery is a compelling mixture of 'whodunit' and psychological thriller. A 12-year-old girl is found murdered at a local archaeological dig in a suburb of Dublin. The case has some intriguing similarities to an unsolved case of over 20 years ago in which two of three children who were playing in the woods went missing one summer day and were never recovered. Two detectives are assigned to the current case: Detective Rob Ryan and his best friend, Cassie Maddox. Ryan and Maddox have personal problems of their own that get in the way of solving the current crime.

Why You’ll Love It: As a child, Ryan was the one that returned home in the unsolved case, and he continues to be traumatized by that event. Maddox helps him cover up his involvement for reasons of her own.

Who Will/Should Read It: Mystery lovers, fiction readers, and anyone who enjoys a gripping story.

Tana French has just written another book focusing on Detective Cassie Maddox called The Likeness.
