THE WITCH ELM / Tana French

I’ve been a fan of Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad books for years, so I was intrigued when this new standalone novel was published and incredibly glad to find out it did not disappoint. A sort of sideways gothic, The Witch Elm features a mysterious house, a secret from the past, an unreliable narrator, and a plot that squirms along until the final deadly twist. French’s writing is gorgeously constructed, with sentences so good you’ll go back and read them twice, and a cast of fully realized, complex characters that keep you guessing. If you enjoy authors who have a way with language, give French’s work a try.     Laura 12/7/2018
