The Wych Elm – Tana French


I have read all of the previous novels by Tana French and have loved them all. This did not disappoint and, although different, I found this exceptionally good.

The story is told from the viewpoint of Toby, who is from a privileged background and upbringing.  One night his whole world changes when he is attacked in his own home and the world he knew no longer exists.  He struggles to cope with it all and decides to go back to the ancestral home to look after a dying uncle.

A discovery is made in the back garden in the Wych Elm tree and the family have their lives turned upside down.

This is outstandingly well written and at times graphically unnerving.  Loved it.

Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Books UK, Viking and Tana French for my ARC in return for my honest review.



Excellent read and highly recommended.
