"Tana French promises two whodunits for the price of one in her harrowing first novel, IN THE WOODS, by linking the contemporary homicide of a 12-year-old girl from a small town near Dublin with the misadventures of three children who vanished while playing in the same wooded area 20 years earlier. While French resolves only one of these twinned mysteries, the intricate design of her storytelling is something of its own reward — although that might not appease readers who, having been lured into these thickets, find themselves hanging from a limb."
Suggested by one of our book discussion participant recently, I thought this will be fun. Everyone seems to like a good mystery, with Ireland and the woods as backdrops, written by an actress, very interesting combinations of things.
