Tana French's In The Woods was one of the first "thriller" books I've read in long time and woo-eee! It was a thrill! A mystery within a mystery, a who-done-it, and all with some nods to Ireland and Irish culture. I'm hooked! Not to mention, there are many morey books after this dark debut. It was hard to put down, and hard to read at night.
