Waiting on Wednesday - The Tresspasser


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that highlights a book that we can't wait to be published.  It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.



The Trespasser 
(Dublin Murder Squad #6)
 by Tana French
Available on October 4, 2016


Overview

Antoinette Conway, the tough, abrasive detective from The Secret Place, is still on the Murder squad, but only just. She's partnered up with Stephen Moran now, and that's going well - but the rest of her working life isn't. Antoinette doesn't play well with others, and there's a vicious running campaign in the squad to get rid of her. She and Stephen pull a case that at first looks like a slam-dunk lovers' tiff, but gradually they realise there's more going on: someone on their own squad is trying to push them towards the obvious solution, away from nagging questions. They have to work out whether this is just an escalation in the drive to get rid of her - or whether there's something deeper and darker going on.

Well, I didn't care for The Secret Place, but I've enjoyed all of Tana French's other books, so I'm planning to grab a copy of The Trespasser just as soon as it hits the shelves. How about you? Which is your favorite Dublin Murder Squad book? Mine? The Likeness. Faithful Place. In the Woods. Broken Harbor. Yep. All but The Secret Place. :)

  1. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I have several of her books but haven't tried her work yet.

  3. I'm with you - didn't like The Secret Place. Too long and characters I didn't care for that much. I will probably give this one a try given that I have really liked her other books so I'm hopeful that it was just a fluke!

    1. Iliana, I'm hoping this next one is better than The Secret Place. I'm a little worried since it has the same characters... We'll see!

  4. The Likeness, followed by Faithful Place. I haven't read The Secret Place yet, but your reaction seems to be typical. I guess even terrific writers can misfire on occasion.

    1. Anne, Wasn't The Likeness wonderful?! I really had to suspend disbelief, though.

  5. I am so waiting for this! And somehow, I loved The Secret Place, whereas Inhad trouble with her first one. Strangely enough, this is an author I have come to love, after not being that enamored initially.

    1. Meredith, I know you loved The Secret Place and that's why I tried on more than one occasion (and different formats) to get hooked. Let's hope this next one is a winner for both of us. :)
