Tana French, Into the Woods (2007)
Dec 15, 2015 Main Library, Conference Room
As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, three children do not return from the nearby woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours. Twenty years later, that boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

Jan 19, 2016 Main Library
Reporter Jane Ryland is covering what is supposed to be a simple, if heartbreaking, home foreclosure. “Terrible facts. Great pictures. A perfect newspaper story.” The discovery of a body in the empty house leads Ryland to a much bigger story about corruption – and some powerful people who will stop at nothing to keep the truth from coming out. EMMY Award-winning investigative reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan won the Agatha Award for this third entry in the captivating Jane Ryland/Jake Brogan series.
