The masterful Richard & Judy pick, from the Sunday Times bestselling author. Winner of the Irish Book Awards Crime Fiction Book of the Year. 'A TRULY GREAT WRITER' Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl 'ONE OF THE BEST CRIME WRITERS WORKING TODAY' Guardian You can beat one killer. Beating your own squad is a whole other thing. Being on the Dublin Murder squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed. Her working life is a stream of thankless cases and harassment. Antoinette is tough, but she's getting close to the breaking point. The new case looks like a regular lovers' quarrel gone bad. Aislinn Murray is blond, pretty and lying dead next to a table set for a romantic dinner. There's nothing unusual about her - except that Antoinette has seen her somewhere before. And her death won't stay neat. Other detectives want her to arrest Aislinn's boyfriend, fast. There's a shadowy figure at the end of Antoinette's road. And everything they find out about Aislinn takes her further from the simple woman 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 the case that will make her career - or break it?

First-rate . . . her procedural thoroughness takes her deeper and deeper into a wholly convincing portrayal of Dublin police. -- David Hare * Guardian * First-rate . . . her procedural thoroughness takes her deeper and deeper into a wholly convincing portrayal of Dublin police. -- David Hare * Guardian * Best Crime Title of the Year * Daily Mail * Best Crime Title of the Year * Daily Mail * The narrator this time is the wonderfully foul-mouthed, bad-tempered detective Antoinette Conway. And her narrative voice proves to be just as entertaining as I'd hoped, with a wonderfully salty and sometimes cruel sense of humour . . . At last it looks like a police procedural series from this side of the Atlantic can rival the best of the Americans. * Sunday Express * I'm a huge fan of hers and have read all her novels. -- Cecilia Ahern * The Lady * One of the best crime writers working today, Tana French . . . I can do you no greater favour in life than recommending that you read her books. * Guardian.com * Perfect winter reading. Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad series are up there with the most read on our 50 book challenge discussions. This is no surprise since her books offer readers compelling, intelligent thrillers with brilliant characters - including the tough and foul-mouthed detective, Antoinette Conway, the narrator of this twisty and thrilling story. * Mumsnet Best books for Christmas * French's gripping sixth novel checks every box from prose to plotting to suspense to characterisation. I'm working my way through the Dublin Murder Squad series and they're stellar. * Big Issue * Its single voice is brilliantly sustained over 450 pages, and the book is a clever and intriguing experiment - the default technique of the psychological thriller, first-person female narration, deployed instead in a procedural whodunit. * Sunday Times * A gnarly, absorbing read, and a finely tuned slice of wintry gloom from one the best thriller writers we have. * Observer * A beautifully wrought murder mystery and investigation into what it means to be a murder detective. * Mail on Sunday * French and The Trespasser merit all the praise we can heap on them. If 2016 has a better crime thriller to offer, I've not yet read it. * New Books Magazine * THE TRESPASSER contains the most tense and serpentine interrogation scenes outside of John Le Carre . . . Shows French to be a one-off phenomenon. -- Mark Lawson * Guardian * Another gripping tale, beautifully told, by a woman at the top of her game. * Sunday Independent * Taut, twisty, packed with all-too believable characters and rattles along at breakneck speed. * Woman & Home * She's fast becoming our fave crime/thriller writer, as this latest offering is flipping brilliant! * Fabulous Magazine * Get ready to get comfy on the sofa with this clever, compelling and creepy thriller - it's quite possibly French's best to date. * Closer Magazine * French's psych-profile shtick is so sharp, she ensures we're wrapped up, too . . . the big reveal can hit you like a loaded punch * Crime Scene * One of this year's most anticipated books * Stylist * A tense study in paranoia, delivered with French's customary adroitness. It's not hard to see why such writers as Stephen King and Gillian Flynn are admirers. -- Barry Forshaw * Crime Time * This is story-telling at the highest level, packed with sparky dialogue and a feisty heroine who rises about her difficult background and challenging work environment in order to seek the truth. * Irish Independent * Uncommonly well written * Irish Times * A clever and well-crafted read. * Sun * I'm a huge fan of hers and have read all her novels. -- Cecilia Ahern * The Lady * Tana French's thrillers are consistently good - well-plotted, intelligent, with memorable characters - and her latest, THE TRESPASSER, does not disappoint. * Good Housekeeping * This is crime writing at its most sublime: spell-binding story-telling with a heroine to treasure in Detective Antoinett
