Book Review: The Trespasser

 

I’ve been a huge fan of Tana French and her Dublin Murder Squad series ever since I stumbled upon In The Woods at Barnes & Noble 6ish years ago. I have to admit I wasn’t a huge fan of that last two books in the series, but I had high hopes for The Trespasser.

 

The Trespasser follows Antoinette Conway, a hardened female detective working on the Dublin murder squad and her partner Stephen Moran. Late one night after a long shift of working low level cases, the two are surprised to find that they have been assigned to the high profile murder of a beautiful and seemingly ordinary young woman. They soon learn things aren’t always as they seem and there are few they can trust. All the while, Antoinette is faced with constant harassment and ostracization from her male colleagues.

 

I hate to admit it, but I didn’t love this book. It just didn’t live up to my expectations from the earlier books in the series. My biggest complaint is that the story didn’t leave me guessing. I love crime and psychological thrillers because they leave you trying to figure out who did what. Or they shock you with a twist you never saw coming. I didn’t get that from this book. My other complaint is that the edgy, angry, hard-nosed woman characterization of the protagonist Antoinette Conway got old pretty quickly. It went beyond the point of demonstrating that she worked in a hostile environment and bled over to self-pitying paranoia that annoyed me.

 

I really wanted to love this book, but sadly, it missed the mark with me.

 

Are you a fan of Tana French? What did you think of the Trespasser?

  • Good news for Lily! I took her to get the stitches out yesterday and the pathology came back. While the tumor was malignant, the vet was able to remove it all and her margins are clear.
