'Sharply written and insidiously creepy, this is a mesmerising read that grabs hold of the reader from the very first page and doesn't let go until well past two in the morning.' -- The Times 20071103 'This is a wonderfully assured and beautifully written debut novel, a multilayered psychological thriller that digs beneath the surface of ordinary lives and delivers excitement and insight in large helpings.' -- Irish Independent 20071103 'Lyrical and haunting' -- Scotland on Sunday 20071103 'A real show-stopper of a thriller ... Author tightens the tension slowly until squealing point; Ryan's increasingly taut relationship with Maddox is woven cunningly around the crime plot. A splendid, page-turning debut.' -- She 20071103 'A rich multi-layered thriller' -- Choice 20071103 'This is a real treat for Christmas. In the Woods is a classic murder mystery with plenty of twists and macabre detail. This is Tana French's debut and it's startlingly accomplished ... French writes beautifully and is far from lazy when it comes to sprinkling clues and red herrings and developing the characters.' -- Alyson Rudd, The Times 20071103 'An intricate and edgy top-notch psychological thriller.' -- Woman and Home 20071103
