New Book from Tana French


A new book from Tana French was released this month, The Searcher.  According to the book's page on Amazon, it is currently a #1 Best Seller in Witch and Wizard Thrillers. I have no idea why that is the case; and whether or not that is a recommendation is up to you, my friends.

I am a fan of the six books in French's Dublin murder squad series, crime novels featuring  a loosely connected set of Irish detectives. Her seventh book, The Witch Elm  (well-off young man's life in downward spiral) is not part of that series. 

I didn't really enjoy The Witch Elm, although everyone else apparently did as it was a New York Times Notable book in 2018 and an NPR Best Book of 2018. For me, the story was too creepy without being engaging; does that make sense?

Although The Witch Elm didn't tick my boxes for a good read, I plan to read The SearcherThe Searcher, according to the publisher's web site, is about a retired Chicago police officer who lives in Ireland. When a local boy goes missing, he gets drawn into investigating. What could possibly go wrong?
