Detective Rob Ryan and his partner, Cassie Maddox, investigate the murder of a 12-year-old girl near a Dublin suburb. The case resonates with similarities to a murder committed twenty years before that involved two children and the young Ryan.

Loved this. Gripping story - could hardly put it down. Disturbing outcome, though, in more ways than one. ( )

A pesar de haber abandonado la brigada de homicidios, la detective Cassie Maddox recibe una llamada para acudir a la escena de un crimen, ya que ella y la joven asesinada, Alexandra Madison, son prácticamente como dos gotas de agua. La policía desmentirá la muerte de Lexie Madison para que Cassie pueda suplantarla e irse a vivir a Whitethorn House, su antiguo hogar, que compartía con cuatro curiosos estudiantes universitarios, los principales sospechosos. Cassie no tardará en verse arrastrada por el misterio de saber quién era realmente Lexie y penetrar en su mundo.

Más allá de la urbanización está el bosque. Ese bosque oscuro y silencioso en el que los niños escapan para perseguir fantasmas, miedos y leyendas. Son sólo juegos. Hasta que no vuelven. La tarde del 14 de agosto de 1.984, tres niños de doce años, Jamie Rowan, Peter Savage y Adam Ryan, se adentraron en el bosque de Knocknaree, en las afueras de Dublín, nunca más salieron de él. Aunque la Policía encuentra esa misma noche a uno de ellos, Ryan, abrazado a un roble, con los zapatos llenos de sangre y un rostro de espanto, incapaz de recordar nada de las horas anteriores. Veinte años después, Ryan intentará definitivamente escapar de aquel bosque. Ahora se hace llamar Rob, es detective de Homicidios y sigue guardando con celo aquella pesadilla de la infancia. Hasta que encuentran el cuerpo de una niña de doce años asesinada en un escenario difícil de olvidar: el mismo bosque, el mismo terror, ninguna pista.

I'll give it 3 stars. It's a pretty unusual story, I thought, but kind of drawn out and dragged a bit at times. The ending wasn't very satisfying to me, and it also seemed to go on and on as the main character seemed to be getting lost in a downward spiral. Not that all books need to have a nice, happy ending but this one was a bit too depressing. Before I read more of the series, I'll probably want to read more reviews to see if it looks better first.

Back in 1984, twelve-year-old Adam Ryan was found in the woods, scared, with blood-soaked shoes and no memory of how he got there. The two friends he was playing with are missing. Their bodies have never been found and no one knows what happened to them.

Now Adam goes by Rob Ryan and after going away to an English boarding school after the incident in his childhood, he’s a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad. No one he works with knows that he’s the boy from the woods. Now the body of a 12-year-old girl who was raped and murdered is found in the same woods. Rob and his partner Cassie have been assigned to the case. Will Rob’s childhood trauma in the woods affect his handling of the girl’s case? Is her case related to what happened to him and his friends?

I’m not a huge crime reader but I know Tana French is really popular so I thought I’d give one of her books a whirl. In the Woods got off to an incredibly slow start. I didn’t get to that “can’t put it down” phase that I expect to have when reading a mystery or thriller until over 200 pages in. I almost gave up several times and did actually set it aside to read another book and then came back to it. The last 200 pages or so flew by – I read them in just a couple of days! It took me weeks to read the first part though.

I enjoyed Rob and Cassie as a team, especially their rapport when interrogating suspects. Their personal relationship made me cringe a bit, but I think it was supposed to. Overall, the characters were really well-developed. I thought the plot was great – there were twists and surprises, but it was just such a slow build. It’s hard to say much more without spoiling something. If this book were just 150 pages shorter, I would have rated it higher.

Oh, the other thing that you should know is that not all the loose ends are resolved at the end of the book, and from a cursory internet search, it doesn’t look like they are resolved in subsequent books in the series either. This actually didn’t bother me even though I am usually one to like everything tied up in a nice little bow at the end of a book. ( )

Although she overburdens the traditional police-procedural form with the weight of romance, psychological suspense, social history and mythic legend, she sets a vivid scene for her complex characters, who seem entirely capable of doing the unexpected. Drawn by the grim nature of her plot and the lyrical ferocity of her writing, even smart people who should know better will be able to lose themselves in these dark woods.

What I am telling you, before you begin my story, is this--two things: I crave truth. And I lie.
We think about mortality so little, these days, except to flail hysterically at it with trendy forms of exercise and high-fiber cereals and nicotine patches.
To my mind the defining characteristic of our era is spin, everything tailored to vanishing point by market research, brands and bands manufactured to precise specifications; we are so used to things transmuting into whatever we would like them to be that it comes as a profound outrage to encounter death, stubbornly unspinnable, only and immutably itself.
"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence," he told me reproachfully.
Maybe she, like me, would have loved the tiny details and the inconveniences even more dearly than the wonders, because they are the things that prove you belong.
