My mind never stops working. Even at night when I’m supposed to be sleeping, my mind keeps churning out unrelated ideas, problems, and solutions. My wife hits the pillow and never thinks or moves.

British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
