Witch elmThe Witch Elm : a novel

By Tana French

Toby is a happy-go-lucky charmer who’s dodged a scrape at work and is celebrating with friends when the night takes a turn that will change his life – he surprises two burglars who beat him and leave him for dead.

By Roddy Doyle

A breakout from the Booker-prize-winning novelist Roddy Doyle. A psychological suspense novel unlike any he’s written before, about how we contend with the past, trauma, guilt and regret, and the uncertainty of memory.
