The Wych Elm

by Tana French | 14 February 2019
Category: Crime Fiction
Synopsis
'THE WORD 'UNPUTDOWNABLE' WAS COINED FOR NOVELS LIKE THIS. AN ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE' JOHN BOYNE 'For me it all goes back to that night, the dark corroded hinge between before and after, the slipped-in sheet of trick glass that tints everything on one side in its own murky colours and leaves everything on the other luminous and untouchable.' One night changes everything for Toby. He's always led a charmed life - until a brutal attack leaves him damaged and traumatised, unsure even of the person he used to be. He seeks refuge at his family's ancestral home, the Ivy House, filled with memories of wild-strawberry summers and teenage parties with his cousins. But not long after Toby's arrival, a discovery is made: a skull, tucked neatly inside the old wych elm in the garden. As detectives begin to close in, Toby is forced to examine everything he thought he knew about his family, his past, and himself. A spellbinding standalone from a literary writer who turns the crime genre inside out, The Wych Elm asks what we become, and what we're capable of, if we no longer know who we are. 'Her best novel yet...this mystery about family, memory and the cracks in both will haunt you for a long, long time' Erin Kelly 'Exquisite, magnificent - a dense, hypnotic novel from one of the greatest fiction writers of this century. I am breathtaken. I am in awe. I feel enriched having read it.' AJ Finn
