Publisher Description

WINNER OF THE EDGAR AWARD 2008 FOR BEST FIRST NOVEL
'You're twelve years old. It's the summer holiday. You're playing in the woods with your two best friends. Something happens. Something terrible. And the other two are never seen again.'
Twenty years on, Rob Ryan - the child who came back - is a detective in the Dublin police force. He's changed his name. No one knows about his past. Even he has no memory of what happened that day.
Then a little girl's body is found at the site of the old tragedy and Rob is drawn back into the mystery. For him and his DI partner, Cassie, every lead comes with its own sinister undercurrents. The victim's apparently normal family is hiding layers of secrets. Rob's own private enquiries are taking a toll on his mind. And every trail leads inexorably back . . . into the woods.

It's the journey!

Loved this book - great descriptions, flawed characters, and beautiful writing. It's not a thrill a minute type of book, it slowly creeps up on you until you are so immersed that you can't let it go. Awesome.

Long winded and disappointing

I dragged myself through this book, hoping it would get better. I wanted there to be a twist at the end, there wasn't. The story fizzled out into a disappointing end. Sadly, there was very little excitement. When I thought it was finally becoming exciting, the plot fizzled into nothingness again. I won't bother with Tana French again.

In the woods

There were pages and pages of angst for the main character I started to skip over.

There is a second crime that goes no where, and looks like it was introduced to simply complicate things. It’s not solved.

The ending left me disappointed. Not going to bother with another.
