In The Woods by Tana French

Dublin 1984 dusk, three children vanish in the woods. One, Rob Ryan, grips a tree trunk in terror, unable to recall any detail of previous hours. Twenty years later, the detective on the Dublin Murder Squad keeps his past a secret. But when a girl 12 is killed in the same woods, Rob and Detective Cassie Maddox — partner and best pal - investigate present and past.

Shewee but this was a long book (approx 12hours according to Kindle - which is long for most of what I read).

But I did enjoy it, it was a bit weird to classify tho. I think like most people, I was a little disappointed [spoiler] that the cold case wasn't solved or explained. [/spoiler] But, aside from that it was quite an enjoyable book to read. I enjoyed the characters, although some of the time it felt like there was a lot more fluff around them and their emotional turmoil than the solving of the case.

I see this is the start of a series ... am not really sure where it'll go from here tho, since [spoiler] the book split the team up in the end [/spoiler]. I guess I'll have to read the next one to find out :)
