Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox (his partner and closest friend) find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

No the characters where unlikable and the solving of the murder came out of left field.
I like the idea of an Irish Detective but not creepy Ryan.
The Interaction between Cassie and Ryan.
This character made me cringe.
Detective Ryan was such a creep I do not want to spoil anything but even him getting on the case when he shouldn't have been.
Only to friends that would have the taste for something like this.
Effiminate. Accent didn't sound right.
Complex and interesting study, not only of the crime, but also the investigators..
In the middle . I enjoy a story line that is not predictable .
Not sure .
Sam . Hangs in the back but is charming .
No . Many details to take in .
Quite far up, could have been on top if it were not for one thing missing in the story.
Chet & Bernie series, which also have a good narrator, great characters and a good storyline.
When Cassy tells her partner about her past.
He's back where it all started, only this time all alone in the woods with his terror....
I was greatly dissappointed over the first case not being solved!
I picked this up on the recommendation of a friend. After I finished, I immediately downloaded every other book by this author. Great story. Sucks you right in to the characters' joys and woes.
Yes. It is still suspenseful with interesting characters and well written.
Yes, I heard her other books are better.
Murders decades apart are connected by one man.
This book is totally boring but it sure takes forever to get around to anything happening. I don't know how it ends and didn't have he patience to find out. Can I get my credit back?
I love mystry thrillers of all kinds: Jennifer Winspear, Agatha Christi, the Mrs. Pollifax series, and even Jack Reacher and Pendegast, but the very best are the Swedish writers and TANA FRENCH! I read the last in the series first because I didn't realize it was a series. It was such a good book too. And I just finished "In The Woods". Beautfiul language, rich characters that are real people you can relate to, and realistic twists and turns that can't allow you to stop listening. I am so looking forward to listening to "The Likeness" which I just down loaded but I am already feeling sad that there are no more. Yes, dounload this book! It is fantastic.
I read wonderful reviews about this book but was disappointed in the story. Very dark. Lots and lots of unnecessary detail. No smiling moments that make you reflect on the good that comes with the bad. I finally skipped to the last chapter to see
How can anything this long be so incomplete? I thought I must have been missing a section of the story. How can anything drone on and on for so long without having an ending? And no, I am not a simpleton that can't understand and appreciate depth in a story, and also not a sheep that will ooh and ahh over a piece of crap. I'm not turned off of the genre, but I will never do Tana French again.
