In The Woods By Tana French
You’re twelve years old, its the summer holiday.
You’re playing in the woods with your two best friends and something happens.
The other two are never seen again.
Twenty years on, Rob Ryan- the child who came back is a detective in the Dublin police force.
Moreover he changed his name- no one knows about his past.
He has no memory of what happened that day.
Then a little girl’s body is found at the site of the old tragedy and Rob is drawn back into the mystery.
For him and his DI partner, Cassie, every lead comes with its own sinister undercurrents.
The victim’s apparently normal family is hiding layers of secrets.
Similarly Rob’s own private inquiries are taking a toll on his mind.
Lastly every trail leads inexorably back into the woods.
