The Wych Elm Competition

To celebrate the release of Tana French’s new novel The Wych Elm, we're giving one lucky reader and a friend the chance to win a trip to Dublin to explore the city that inspired the backdrop of this incredible story. The prize includes a two night stay in Cliff Townhouse in Dublin with a three course A La Carte dinner and a bottle of house wine in their fine dining seafood restaurant.

The Wych Elm is a spellbinding standalone from a literary writer who turns the crime genre inside out. It asks what we become, and what we're capable of, if we no longer know who we are. Get your copy now >>

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.
