Review

The new Tartt - the thriller that's every bit as good as The Secret History . . . Classic in the making . . . French's scintillating dialogue . . . captures how teenagers talk now as expertly as any young-adult novel, and she sustains suspense flawlessly. The Secret Place is at least as good as Donna Tartt's The Secret History and every bit as well written. A film looks inevitable. (John Dugdale Sunday Times)

French's pitch-perfect prose nails teenage lives with uncanny precision and the result is that rare beast, a literary page turner. (Sunday Express)

French is one of the most consistently exciting crime novelists working today. The Secret Place may be her most ambitious book yet . . . completely riveting. French offers a chilling portrait of the ways in which teenage friendships can overrule any conventional morality. - Thriller of the Week (Mail on Sunday)

Prepare to be hooked by one of the stand-out books of the year. (Fabulous)

Tana French is now the undisputed queen of Irish crime fiction . . . her books transcend genre. Her prose is "literary fiction", her plots are intricate, her characters and dialogue compellingly real. (Sunday Independent)

I haven't been so absorbed in a boarding school story since Malory Towers, though St Kilda's in Dublin is altogether a darker place, and even had Enid Blyton been on speed, she could never have achieved Tana French's whip-smart skills when it comes to teenage girl dialogue (Enid would have been horrified at their language) and plot development . . . French ratchets up the tension in familiar fashion and is a marvellous chronicler of the intense, anxious and passionate lives of teenagers. (Daily Mail)

Unmissable Mystery . . . Exquisitely crafted and utterly absorbing. Read it! (Heat)

An absolutely mesmerizing read (Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL)

Winning combination of intricate plotting and psychological depth (Laura Wilson Saturday Guardian)

I know who killed him - but I'm envious of anyone who does not, because it means they have yet to read the new novel by the bestselling, multiple award-winning Irish author, Tana French, already acclaimed as "one of the finest crime writers in the world". (Herald)

Expect fine characterisation, good writing and some clever red herrings. (CHOICE: Book of The Month)

I've been enthusiastically telling everyone who will listen to read Tana French (Harlan Coben)

The thing Tana French does better than almost any living crime writer is create suspense. She makes you feel as if you're the detective, and your whole future career, not to mention your mental equilibrium, depends upon working out the solution to the puzzle. The Secret Place is another nail-biting ordeal of mysteriousness that will have readers frantically turning pages in their eagerness to discover the truth (Sophie Hannah, bestselling author of The Carrier)

A wonderfully tender and savage thriller about loyalty, teenage friendship and first loves. Gripping and ingenious (Kate Mosse, bestselling author of Labyrinth)

A gripping read for those still pining for Gone Girl

(ELLE's Top Five Beach Reads)

She's a seriously talented writer and I love her Dublin Murder Squad series. I've been eagerly awaiting this one for ages. (Stephanie Merritt Observer)

It's terrific - terrifying, amazing, and the prose is incandescent (Stephen King, No. 1 bestselling author)

This riveting crime novel may be set in a girls' school but it is definitely not kids' stuff. French's prose glitters, creating a gripping mystery set in a world of shadows and tension (Sunday Mirror)

French's talent for creating great characters and intimate relationships shines in this gripping novel - creating an intense atmosphere for the two detectives to find the killer. (Essentials)

Clearly the work of a criminal mastermind (Metro)

French's novel is fraught with menace; it's also a poignant, heart-piercing reminder of life as a teenager. (The Observer)

Book Description

Marian Keyes tweeted 'it's brilliant!', Marie Claire calls it 'a gripping read for those still pining for GONE GIRL' and Gillian Flynn says it's 'an absolutely mesmerizing read'. They all know who killed him. Do you?
