The Trespasser Tana French read online review & book description:

The bestselling novel by Tana French, author of the forthcoming novel The Searcher, is “required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting” (The New York Times). She “inspires cultic devotion in readers” (The New Yorker) and is “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (The Washington Post).

“Atmospheric and unputdownable.” —People 


In bestselling author Tana French’s newest “tour de force” (The New York Times), being on the Murder Squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed it would be. Her partner, Stephen Moran, is the only person who seems glad she’s there. The rest of her working life is a stream of thankless cases, vicious pranks, and harassment. Antoinette is savagely tough, but she’s getting close to the breaking point. 
 
Their new case looks like yet another by-the-numbers lovers’ quarrel gone bad. Aislinn Murray is blond, pretty, groomed-to-a-shine, and dead in her catalog-perfect living room, next to a table set for a romantic dinner. There’s nothing unusual about her—except that Antoinette’s seen her somewhere before.
 
And that her death won’t stay in its neat by-numbers box. Other detectives are trying to push Antoinette and Steve into arresting Aislinn’s boyfriend, fast. There’s a shadowy figure at the end of Antoinetteʼs road. Aislinnʼs friend is hinting that she knew Aislinn was in danger. And everything they find out about Aislinn takes her further from the glossy, passive doll she seemed to be.
 
Antoinette knows the harassment has turned her paranoid, but she can’t tell just how far gone she is. Is this case another step in the campaign to force her off the squad, or are there darker currents flowing beneath its polished surface?

    Another winner from Tana French. Complex characters dealing with complicated issues. Deeply satisfying.
  • Awful

    Soooooo needlessly long and a strong female detective is an awesome thing. One that’s just bitter and mean and says “@#%&” her about her victim is another. I shut down after that. The main character is awful. Wasted a few hours on this
  • Phenominal!

    I have just completed reading all of Tana French’s books, in chronological order. And while I like all of her books, some are better than others. This sixth book, the Tresspasser, was phenomal! Trying to solve the crime while seeing everything through the psychological weaknesses of the lead character, kept me thinking and trying to figure out what was really happening and what was just imagined. It really challenged me, and I couldn’t put it down. Loved the storyline, and all the characters. I highly recommend it.

    In this, her third or fourth novel that I have read, she, or rather I ket myself to be to be led, sometimes nudged, into dead ends with slippery floors. By the time I found the light and the right oath to the solving of this mystery, i felt a bit foolish while at the same time feeling comfortable about staying the course to enlightenment and not simply gobsmacked with uncertainty about following her main characters trail of crumbs. She does an excellent job of getting the reader involved in the mystery and T the same time not using cheap tricks to confound you though confound you she does in spurts. She, Tamara French, doesn’t let me down and i am grateful for that. She provides well crafted stories with really good characters. Looking forward to reading the next one. Reading about crime outside of Chicago and the states lets me know we are not alone in being immersed in all the bad stuff that hits the nightly news. Peace out John

    I guess I’m too American for Tana French. I find her books (I’ve read 3 others) to be sluggish and predictable, like a lot of British crime mystery movies and TV shows. Her characters and plots unfold rather monotonously.

    I enjoyed this book. It was well written and kept me engrossed. The characters were well thought out. It gave me some perspective on how police solve crime. Didn’t realize how many blind alleys are involved until the truth is uncovered if it ever is.
  • Hard to finish

    I seem to be in the minority but I could not get into this book. I was very excited about this book because it's in my wheelhouse with an exciting mystery and a tough female lead but I was quickly let down. I couldn't connect with Antoinette at all, I was very rarely invested in what happened to her. I think the most interesting character in this book is her partner and in the grand scheme of things we see him very little. It just didn't pull me in and I think the ending was a bit dull!

    Tana French is one of my favorites but she missed on this novel. It was boring, went on forever about the same thing over and over and over!
  • So. Much. DIALOGUE

    The plot was good enough to keep me hooked, but I got so annoyed at the incessant, overly detailed conversations. The characters all had the same way of talking which made the endless paragraphs of dialogue blur together. The last few chapters are great, but the first 3/4 of the book are sluggish and suffocating.
  • Not her best

    Hugely disappointing, sluggish, totally predictable plot and unsympathetic, unlikable characters. I've read all of tana french's books and this one just isn't worthy of her
