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

Gripping and suspenseful, with more twists than a rollercoaster, The Wych Elm is a magnificent novel -- John Boyne

French offers a masterclass in unreliability . . . dissolving the boundaries between genre and literary fiction ― Sunday Times

Her best book. Really, it is not a crime novel: as ever, Tana's scope is so much broader than that. It's a book about identity, childhood, luck and family...I absolutely loved it. -- Gillian McAllister

Inspires cultic devotion in readers...most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming ― The New Yorker

A brilliant examination of male privilege and family secrets -- What to Look Forward to in the World of Books 2019 ― Guardian

A darkly addictive story of family secrets -- Best Books of 2019 ― i paper

Tana French's writing is lyrical but sharp, her eye for detail exquisite, her storytelling skills incredible - I need to read her backlist right away! -- Sara Manning ― Red Magazine

Another one of her rich psychological thrillers that will work its way under your skin -- Lucy Mangan ― Stylist

French is a poet of mood and a master builder of plots -- Maureen Corrigan ― The Washington Post

A spectacularly talented writer -- Louise O'Neill, author of 'Asking for It'

Tana French is one of those rare writers whose publication date you put in your diary. Her effortless verve, insight and black wit still glimmer from every page. -- Kate Riordan, author of 'The Girl in the Photograph'

A hugely satisfying door-stopper of a novel, full of ambiguity, nuance and building menace. To read French is to experience that sense of utter disorientation that comes from the ground shifting constantly beneath your feet. Totally absorbing -- Tammy Cohen

Tana French's best and most intricately nuanced novel yet. . . Get ready for the whiplash brought on by its final twists and turns ― New York Times

A beautifully written, highly intelligent meditation on family relationships, the human mind, social politics and much more, often leavened with good jokesSunday Express
