One of Fall 2020s Most Anticipated Books
The New York Times Cosmopolitan Buzzfeed Bustle E! News Parade The Washington Post Vox Entertainment Weekly TIME Vogue Parade CrimeReads The Week New York Post The Millions PopSugar Kirkus Publishers Weekly Top 10

The west of Ireland looked good to Cal Hooper on the internet. But now that he's living there, the rugged beauty of the region overwhelms him, as it will anyone reading Tana French's The Searcher, an audacious departure for this immensely talented author... Not to be missed. --Janet Maslin, The New York Times

French's writing here is on fire. Eerie and nuanced and spellbinding. --Fresh Air

"French avoids the fireworks of conventional crime fiction, instead taking a classic setup--the lone outsider revealing the dark side of a small town--and imbuing it with simmering menace. There's also an unexpectedly moving friendship and storytelling so atmospheric you can practically smell the peat bogs." --People

"Nuanced and compelling." --The New Yorker

"Thriller mastermind Tana French's . . . work is as consistently thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is entertaining...[In The Searcher] French finds interesting angles and dynamics, and her cast is, as always, wonderfully drawn. --The Los Angeles Times

Vivid and poetic. --Associated Press

French takes this standalone novel at a measured pace, easing readers into Cal's quiet life before the thrills unravel.--TIME

Compelling.--Vox

"The Searcher feels different from French's previous books--there's a sparseness to the setting that contrasts with the bustle of the Dublin Murder Squad, or even the gathered family in The Witch Elm--but is no less addictive; the pages practically turn themselves." --The Seattle Times

A creepy slow burn that focuses just as much on the central characters' inner lives as on the mystery at the heart of the story . . .packed full of twists, turns, and shocking reveals." --BuzzFeed

All things atmospheric and mysterious, this one may keep you up past your bedtime." -- Cosmopolitan

A moving new tale of friendship and healing, set in an Irish countryside populated with eccentrics, curmudgeons, and a hilariously weird British woman obsessed with fairies. --CrimeReads

Evocative and lyrical, The Searcher is a mystery worth reading slowly to savor every perfectly rendered detail. --Bookpage

"The queen of crime returns with a thriller about a retired Chicago police officer who discovers the sinister underbelly of a seemingly quaint Irish town." --Entertainment Weekly

"Insightful characterizations, even of minor figures, and a devastating reveal help make this a standout. Crime fiction fans won't want to miss this one." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A slow-burn stunner that will keep readers turning the pages late into the night. Recommend to the author's legions of fans, as well as those who enjoy crime fiction set in small towns like Julia Keller's or Jane Harper's novels."--Library Journal, starred review

"In another stand-alone, French again displays impressive versatility...French skillfully builds suspense...a fine thriller, but also a moving story of an unlikely friendship that grows from refinishing a ramshackle desk to rebuilding two nearly broken lives."--Booklist

"Just pre-order and call in sick for a couple days after October 6 when the book comes out."--The Millions

"Deliver[s] plenty of twists, shocking revelations, and truly chilling moments."--Kirkus --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
