In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1)In the Woods by Tana French

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


In 1984, three children disappeared in the woods near Dublin. Only one of the children is found near a tree, his sneakers full of blood. He remembers nothing about what happened. Twenty years later, the body of a young girl is found in the same woods, and the recovered child from the earlier incident is now the detective investigating. This police procedural does a great job creating characters and an overall sense of menace. The main character is a bit frustrating at times, but understandable. It's a solid mystery that doesn't lose sight of the humanity and sadness at the heart of murder.
