"In The Woods" Book review

In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1)In the Woods by Tana French
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book did not grab me until I had read about one hundred pages. Tana French builds her story slowly, at times a bit too slowly for my taste.

The bad “guy” in this story is too easy to spot (nobody is that perfect) but French’s character Detective Rob Ryan is an accurate (and painful) portrait of a soul devastated by early childhood trauma.

After weeks of slogging through the first one hundred pages, I got caught up in the story. I read the last third of the book in one day, because I just could not put it down.

Solid story, with some predictable areas, I want to see these characters again.
