Top 10 Books by Tana French

 

The First Lady of Irish Crime (as referred to her by the Independent, the British online newspaper, which also suits the image and reputation she has succeeded in building for herself) who now lives in Dublin, slowly and steadily gained herself fame and success with her literary writings. Born on 10 May, 1973 in Vermont, she got to live in many countries owing to her father’s profession with resource management in developing countries. Initially, she pursued acting for which she went through training at Trinity College. As she was also equally inclined towards writing, gradual procrastinations finally made her release her debut novel In The Woods in the year 2007 which was not only New York Times bestseller but also garnered her many awards including Edgar Award. It was a psychological mystery. The tremendous success of the book inspired her to write the sequel to the book. With this, Tana French Books ended up having six murder mysteries and they were all highly appreciated by the critics. Tana French lives with her husband and two kids in Dublin. Ever since her debut novel, she has been writing the subsequent novels after the gap of 2 years. Her last novel was released in 2017.
