The Trespasser

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The bestselling novel by Tana French, author of The Witch Elm, 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?

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 29, 2016 – Det. Antoinette Conway takes center stage in Edgar-winner French's sharp but shakily paced sixth Dublin Murder Squad novel (after 2014's The Secret Place). When Aislinn Murray, a young woman just coming into her own, is found in her picture-perfect apartment with the back of her head smashed in, the killer appears to be her new boyfriend, Rory Fallon, who was due to come over for dinner the evening of her murder. But that's too easy for the suspicious Conway, whose hackles are raised when a more experienced detective takes an interest in the case and wants Rory charged. In several tense interrogation scenes, Rory's sweat practically drips off the page, and it's obvious why Conway, the only woman on the squad, is so good at her job. French is less adept than usual, however, in weaving in her main characters' backstories. The underlying themes of loyalty and how far one should go to protect a person are what makes this entry worthy of French's prodigious talents, though Conway isn't her best conduit.

The Trespasser

Brilliant Five Star read with Ms. French once again demonstrating outstanding character and plot construction which hold the reader to each turn of the page.

Waiting for the next Tana French release already!

The Trespasser

Outstanding book!! I enjoyed reading this and could visualize the scenes so well. The ending was especially good as the protagonist understood a very important lesson and realized that her perceptions of reality were not always accurate, that her boss actually thought she was especially competent and honest, her boss had integrity, and compared herself to the victim's tunnel vision and fierce tenacity in pursuing a twisted and distorted desire for revenge to the exclusion of a happy life. The victim suffered from the murderer's selfish and arrogant decision, but she missed a great chance for a great life with love and happiness! Loved this book!


The book was so well written. Ms.French's writing was more than just a well crafted story. I loved the dialogue, and banter of the characters. She gave them more depth than I've seen from any other author. This was also the first time in a few decades, that I haven't been able to solve the mystery halfway through the book. Satisfying until the end!
