“Human beings, as I know better than most, can get used to anything. Over time, even the unthinkable gradually wears a little niche for itself in your mind and becomes just something that happened.”― Tana French, In The Woods
It’s 1984. Three children from the Dublin suburb of Knocknaree venture into the arms of the endless, dark forest. Only one comes out. The other two were searched for, but eventually abandoned for fresh meat. That’s the end of that. 20 years later, the child from the woods has changed his name and his identity. He’s joined the Dublin police, although he’s unsure why. He, like everyone else, fought the image of his lost friends, and repressed all of his memories. But, he gets pulled back to Knocknaree to find that an innocent girl was murdered near the very woods where he lost everything as a boy. The unimaginable follows. He’s drawn closer to his partners, he’s unworthily trusted with finding out this girl’s killer, and most of all, he’s taken back to his childhood.
Suspicion. Fear. Awakening. ‘In the Woods’ excites to no end.
