The gripping story of a widow attempting to piece together who murdered her husband one year prior and why so many of her memories around that time no longer seem to exist. An addicting page turner that will leave you continually wondering who killed her husband and whether or not the main character is trapped in a dream or if her reality has just gone askew. You will not want to put this thriller down!!! ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp

Seven teenagers went camping on a hot July night in 1983. Six came out alive, and formed a shaky alliance to keep their secrets.

My favorite of French’s Dublin Murder Squad series. It is modeled after Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. The murder occurs among an inseparable clique of well-read college students living together in a large, old house, but it flips Tartt’s whydunnit concept back to the genre’s traditional whodunnit format. This novel requires a simple leap in believability: that the detective assigned to investigate this murder is a near doppelganger of the victim. Well-paced, thoroughly tense, and more fun than its inspiration. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau

Tana French at her very best! Her ability to draw you into a world is tremendous, yet seemingly effortless. The writing never feels overdone, and the story flows from the page beautifully, with characters so fully formed that you are completely invested in their lives. They truly begin to feel like family and friends, so much so, that when you realize there is a killer in their midst, the shock you feel is real. Set in the idyllic home of a beloved Uncle, one that has seen many summer vacations throughout our protagonist’s childhoods, we follow along as a horror is uncovered, and all that unfolds as a consequence. This book is a treat waiting to be devoured. Enjoy! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

My favorite of the series so far!
After the terror of chasing a serial killer, Robin and Cormoran are back to the normal, bread and butter of detective agencies - tailing cheating spouses, finding missing persons - until a man comes in off the street with a tale of child murder and midnight, backyard burial, all 20 years ago. Though this witness is far from reliable, Strike can't get the case out of his head, even when hired by a paying client, a minister of Parliament, to investigate blackmail.The more he digs the more political backstabbing he reveals, and the more he is sure - these cases are linked... JK at her best, a well built mystery! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

A deeply unsettling mystery that stayed with me long after I turned the last page. Leah's roommate, Emmy, is missing, but the more she searches, the more questions are uncovered. Leah has her own secrets and as she struggles to find answers, she begins to lose her grip on the finer points of her own life. This is an intriguing story that will make you second-guess the motives behind every truth. ~ Reviewed by Ashley Castle
