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?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

There's nothing standard about French's approach to crime fiction, which plays the form much like a jazz musician improvising on a standard. Even when the outlines of the mystery seem familiar…she finds a way to get at enriching themes and powerful emotional truths in fresh and surprising ways. Chicago Tribune
“Beautifully crafted . . . may be her best yet.   Entertainment Weekly “This is the kind of book you’ll want to dig into with all the lights on.
A fierce examination of the chasm between how women choose to present themselves before the world and the more complicated truth underneath--and not to mention a total page-turner. Harper's Bazaar
As in all of the author's work, meaning lurks beneath every quip and glance. French not only spins a twisty cop tale, she also encases it in meticulous prose, creating a read that is as elegant as it is dark. Associated Press Praise for Tana French
To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she’s simply this: a truly great writer.”­  —Gillian Flynn
One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing. The Wall Street Journal
French is a poet of mood and a master builder of plots. ­—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
Terrific—terrifying, amazing, and the prose is incandescent. Stephen King
Thrilling. Buzzfeed
Atmospheric and unputdownable. People 
Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years. The Washington Post
A tour de force . . . When you read Ms. French—and she has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting—make only one assumption: All of your initial assumptions are wrong. Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"[Tana French] inspires cultic devotion in readers…most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming. The New Yorker
“Atmospheric and unputdownable.” People
“A fierce examination of the chasm between how women choose to present themselves before the world and the more complicated truth underneath—and not to mention a total page-turner.” Harper’s Bazaar
“French not only spins a twisty cop tale, she also encases it in meticulous prose, creating a read that is as elegant as it is dark.” Associated Press
“There’s nothing standard about French’s approach to crime fiction…Even when the outlines of the mystery seem familiar…she finds a way to get at enriching themes and powerful emotional truths in fresh and surprising ways.” Chicago Tribune
“[In] The Trespasser…this author drops just enough breadcrumbs through her book to create trails that lead away from whatever the detectives’ conventional wisdom happens to be, and she doesn’t follow up on them until she’s good and ready.” New York Times
“Hilda Fay gives a keenly considered performance in the voice of Antoinette Conway…Subtle distinctions among Irish accents play a fascinating part in Fay’s performance.” AudioFile
