"It has become increasingly clear that American-born, Dublin-based Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years." (The Washington Post) Tana is the author of the bestselling In the Woods, The Likeness, Faithful Place, Broken Harbor, The Secret Place and The Trespasser. Her books have won awards including the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, and Barry awards, the Los Angeles Times Award for Best Mystery/Thriller, and the Irish Book Award for Crime Fiction. She lives in Dublin with her family.
"[An] ambitious and extraordinary first novel...rank it high." --The Washington Post "Part whodunit, part psychological thriller, and wholly successful...French's plot twists and turns will bamboozle even the most astute reader...A well-written, expertly plotted thriller." --NPR "In the Woods is as creepily imaginative as it gets." --USA Today "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." --The New York Times Book Review Praise for Tana French "When you read Ms. French -- and she has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting -- make only one assumption: All of your initial assumptions are wrong" --The New York Times "Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years." --The Washington Post "[Tana French] inspires cultic devotion in readers...most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming." --The New Yorker "To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she's simply this: a truly great writer."- --Gillian Flynn "French is a poet of mood and a master builder of plots." - --The Washington Post "One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing." --The Wall Street Journal "French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it's only growing more miraculous with every book." --Salon.com
