A new direction for the author, Tana French, who are already auditors in turmoil – Stephen King calls it an ‘extraordinary… a meditation on luck – the good, the bad and the very ugly’ – The Wych Elm is a stand-alone treatment that is full of the unexpected. Following a man of the descent from the breezy, serene ease by means of paranoid mystery, is an inventive thriller that is gripping to the final page. Our Thriller of the Month of September 2019, For me it all goes back to the night, in the dark corroded a hinge between the before and the after, the hernia plate of the makeup of the glass, which colors all to one side in his hazy colors, and leaves all other bright and untouchable. One night changes everything for Toby. He has always led a charmed life – until a brutal attack leaves him damaged and traumatized, sure, also, to the person that he used to be. He seeks refuge in his family’s ancestral home, the Ivy House, full of memories of wild-strawberry summers and teenagers, parties with his cousins. But not long after Toby’s arrival, a discovery is made: a skull tucked neatly inside the centre of wych elm in the garden. Detectives start to close in, Toby is forced to examine everything he thought he know about his family, his past, and himself. A fascinating stand-alone literary writer that turns the crime genre inside and out, The Wych Elm asks what we have become and what we can do, if we do not know who we are.
