30 Second Book Review:
In The Woods by Tana French

Irish author Tana French has written an engrossing debut novel that is both a police procedural and a psychological thriller. It's about a team of detectives - Cassie Maddox and Rob Ryan - attempting to solve the murders of two children committed twenty years apart. But there's a twist. Ryan was the lone survivor in the original case, and he is still haunted by the experience. Not only that, Maddox is the only one who knows her partner's secret, and it's drawing her in dangerously close to the case. Set in contemporary Ireland, In the Woods is an intelligent, exciting story with a well crafted plot.
