“Tana French’s best and most intricately nuanced novel yet…Get ready for the whiplash brought on by its final twists and turns.” -The New York Times

An “extraordinary” (Stephen King) and “mesmerizing” (LA Times) new standalone novel from the bestselling master of crime and suspense.


From the writer who “inspires cultic devotion in readers” (The New Yorker) and has been called “incandescent” by Stephen King, “absolutely mesmerizing” by Gillian Flynn, and “unputdownable” (People), comes a gripping new novel that turns a crime story inside out.

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. Struggling to recover from his injuries, beginning to understand that he might never be the same man again, he takes refuge at his family’s ancestral home to care for his dying uncle Hugo. Then a skull is found in the trunk of an elm tree in the garden - and as detectives close in, Toby is forced to face the possibility that his past may not be what he has always believed.

A spellbinding standalone from one of the best suspense writers working today, The Witch Elm asks what we become, and what we’re capable of, when we no longer know who we are.

Story Locale: Dublin, Ireland

HUGE SALES LEAP FROM LAST BOOK: Sales for The Witch Elm are 25% higher than those of The Trespasser, previously her highest-selling hardcover. The Witch Elm is set up to be a blockbuster paperback.

AND A NEW CRITICAL PEAK TOO: The Witch Elm received front-page coverage in The New York Times Book Review, as well as rave coverage in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Salon, Time, Vogue, InStyle, The New Republic, Bustle, and more. It was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2018, and a Best Book of 2018 by NPR, The New York Times Book Review, Amazon, The Boston Globe, LitHub, Vulture, Slate, Elle, Vox, and Electric Literature.

STAND-ALONE SUSPENSE: The Witch Elm has a murder and detectives, but our hero is the victim of a crime. French brings all of her powerhouse atmospherics and characterization to a story that plays with the traditions of suspense fiction and keeps you guessing.

UPCOMING TELEVISION SERIES: Dublin Murders, a series based on French’s In the Woods and The Likeness, is set to premiere on Starz in 2019.

BACKLIST REPACKAGE: Tana’s backlist will continue to be repackaged following the style of The Witch Elm.

Praise for The Witch Elm:

“Like all of her novels, it becomes an incisive psychological portrait embedded in a mesmerizing murder mystery. [French] could make a Target run feel tense and revelatory.”—LA Times

“ ’I’ve always considered myself to be, basically, a lucky person.’ That’s the first line of Tana French’s extraordinary new novel…Here’s a things-go-bad story Thomas Hardy could have written in his prime.”—Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review
