"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 Antoinette's road. Aislinn's 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?"--… (mehr)

A young woman is found dead in her apartment and the case is given to Det. Conway and her partner. While more experienced detectives insist that the boyfriend who expected to have dinner with the woman that night is the obvious suspect other leads seem to point is disparate directions. Conway distrusts nearly everyone in the squad, as she has been victim of destructive pranks. Are the senior detectives trying to help her, as they claim, or are they distracting her from vital clues? A complex and interesting mystery.

I listened to the audio version and "shite!" it was fun to have the story told by a narrator with an Irish accent.

Not my genre preference so I may judge it harsher than others that like and seek out crime mysteries. A couple of people I used to follow on GRs highly praised the book and once I saw it was easily found on audio, I gave it a shot. It was nice to have something easy going in the background during chores etc..

The MC is a bit of a bitch with a "they're all out to get me" attitude. The author justifies it as her being the only female in a male dominated profession that isn't too kind to her. Doesn't make her any less of a bitch. I'm not judging her, maybe I'd be a bitch too but I didn't really enjoy the cringe. She was all-knowing and just a bit too perfect also. Knowing what her "bitchiness" would cause, knowing how to apply it just right. *eye-roll*

The story was way too long. Way too much running through possibilities. The crime & bad guy was unimpressive. (tho I could mourn a bit for the future the victim was working on) The info dump by the best friend near the end was ridiculous and the daddy plot seemed unnecessary except I guess to make the detective and the victim have something in common so the all too perfect cop could know exactly how she must of felt.

I wouldn't of read it all the way through without the narrator, or if I was to be curled up in bed or on the couch with the book. For background while doing dishes, balancing the checkbook, etc... it was okay. ( )

Some people may shy away from crime stories for fear of​ descriptions​ being too graphic or violent​, and to them, I'd recommend Tana French's police novel "The Trespasser"​. While there i​s a victim of a blunt force trauma in the book, the ​details of the death are barely more detailed than that what I just described.

The book reminded me in one way to the 2016 movie "Spotlight". When released, I had no interest in seeing ​that movie​, since it dealt with the story of predator priest​s​ abusing young boys. It's an uncomfortable subject, and the idea of seeing a movie ​on that topic had no appeal to me. Even when it won Academy Awards for best movie and best screenplay, it didn't change my mind. But eventually, enough people described the movie ​to me ​as being mainly about the process​ of the investigation by Boston Globe reporters​, and how they were able to​ first ​ break the ​news. And the physical abuse of the boys, while always lurking in the background, was never the prime focus of the movie.

And that's how I felt about ​Tana French's "The Trespasser". While there is a crime, an apparent murder, the book is really much more about the police investigation itself. The setting is in Ireland, and an anonymous caller reported that a woman is in her home and has a head injury and needs an ambulance. When police arrive, the woman is found dead​, the conditions are suspicious, and the case is assigned to the murder squad. The chief assigns the case to the only female detective in the squad and her relatively inexperienced partner. As the only woman in a male dominated squad, Detective Conway isn't fully accepted by her peers. Occasional harassment, sophomoric pranks and a lack of respect make her job more difficult than necessary, but she doesn't let those problems affect her performance. ​There is some pressure on Detective Conway to bring the case to a quick resolution, however the evidence against the prime suspect, the new boyfriend, is circumstantial at best. Several of the more senior detectives deride the speed at which the investigation proceeds, but Detective​ Conway​ holds her ground and pursues all possibilities. Eventually, her hard work pays off, and an alternate suspect is identified.

​I liked the lead Detective, since despite being occasionally harassed, intimidated, obstructed, and isolated, she ignores these obstacles and is able to do her job. Like other people breaking new ground, e.g., the first black baseball player, the first female firefighter, the first openly gay soldier, etc., ​Detective Conway shows she's got the stuff to do her job, and can endure the petty harassment to prove she's up to the task. I liked her strength and smarts, and her dedication to doing her best under difficult circumstances.

The author does a good job of making the ​detective ​squad, the ​crime ​suspects, ​the ​potential ​witnesses, and the police superiors all seem like a mix of ​fairly normal people. ​None, including Detective Conway, are perfect, yet none are so purely ​evil that they see​m unrealistic. ​And ​I liked the fact that ​it didn't take an unrealistic super-hero investigator to solve the crime​. It just​ took hard work, dedication and perseverance. ​The result is a story ​which seemed ​plausible​, and told in a way which maintained ​my interest without needing those exotic out-of-nowhere end of story miracles to ​solve the case.​ And the audiobook format added to the experience. Since the book takes place in Ireland, the reader kept my mind on location with the appropriate Irish accent during the narration.

While this book is the sixth in a series, it's the first I'd read by the author. I liked it enough to go back and pick up one or more of the earlier books in the series, hopeful that I'll find them as enjoyable as this one. ( )

Tana French's books are all amazing and this one is no exception. Great characters and a gripping plot. Top notch! ( )

This is the sixth instalment in the Dublin Murder Squad series, and this one by Detective Antoinette Conway, who is battling sabotage, pranks and press tipping by her fellow detectives, all male, to establish herself. She and her partner Stephen Moran are assigned a case where a woman (Aislinn Murray) is brutally killed in her own home, and it appears the culprit is her new beau, a seemingly meek bookshop owner. Their investigation moves beyond circumstantial evidence, and there are many twists and turns along the way. Detective Conway and victim Murray each have some family problems, creating tension in their lives. This is a well-crafted police procedural full of suspense and mystery; the downsides are it is slow is some spots, perhaps mirroring how police work actually progresses, and the Irish slang is sometimes hard to decipher.
