While reading THE SEARCHER, it’s abundantly clear author Tana French is a gifted writer. Her beautiful prose and rich descriptions of the rural Irish countryside set the tone for this atmospheric read that’s more character study than mystery. To me, it was a tad too long, as French takes her time to establish the plot, develop the relationships, and build the suspense. This was my first Tana French novel, and I liked it enough to explore other books by this author. I’d recommend THE SEARCHER to readers who enjoy character-driven dramas and don’t mind a slower pace.
