Amazon Reviews

I love getting reviews. I read them all. Most writers say they don't but I do. It's validation. I'm excited to see if readers enjoy the storyline or catch the tiny little Easter eggs I leave behind.

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. 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
