Product description

Review

A truly great writer -- Gillian Flynn

The Wych Elm is her best novel yet -- Erin Kelly

Lyrical, suspenseful, unpredictable

My favourite novel of last year -- Sophie Hannah

Terrific - terrifying, amazing, and the prose is incandescent -- Stephen King

A masterpiece -- John Boyne

The finest crime writer around right nowMail on Sunday

One of the most compulsive psychological mysteries since Donna Tartt's The Secret History...impossible to put downThe Times

The Wych Elm should cement French's place in the first rank of great literary novelistsObserver

Her storytelling skills are incredible -- Sarra Manning ― Red

Book Description

A spellbinding standalone from a literary writer who turns the crime genre inside out, The Wych Elm asks what we become, and what we're capable of, if we no longer know who we are.
