IN THE WOODS BY TANA FRENCH

SYNOPSIS

A small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent 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, the found 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—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

Before I Go To Sleep By S.J. Watson

SYNOPSIS

Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story.

A married woman named Christine wakes each morning with no idea who she is, requiring her husband, Ben, to explain her life all over again, including the accident that made her an amnesiac.

However, when Christine begins to keep a journal, she discovers one morning that she has left an enigmatic and troubling message for herself, one that makes her question everything she thought she knew: “Don’t trust Ben.”
