The Trespasser

By Tana French

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

You can beat one killer. Beating your own squad is a whole other thing.

This is the case that will make Detective Antoinette Conway's murder squad career. Or break it.

A searing novel of psychological suspense from multi-award-winning author Tana French

The case that will make Detective Antoinette Conway's murder squad career. Or break it.

There's the murder squad you set your sights on, back at the beginning of your career: the one where you're playing knife-edge mind-games with psychopathic geniuses. And there's the one you actually work on. The night shifts. The vicious pranks that go too far. Sifting the dregs for the case that might just be special.

Tonight's case isn't it. Uniforms call it in as a slam-dunk domestic. Except when Conway takes a good look at the victim's face, she realises she's seen her somewhere before. And she knows there's a different answer. And it takes her breath away.

This is the case she imagined. Precision-cut and savage, lithe and momentous.

French trammels the passions and drives and dark forces of the case, and renders them in vivid, surging prose: this is her gift ... [And yet] when I have only 100 pages to go it isn't nearly enough. I just want to stay in this world with these characters for as long as possible — Declan Hughes, Irish Times
Another gripping tale, beautifully told, by a woman at the top of her game — Sunday Independent
Story-telling at the highest level, packed with sparky dialogue and a feisty heroine who rises above her difficult background and challenging work environment in order to seek the truth — Irish Independent
A tour de force ... [Tana French] has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting — The New York Times
Most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming ... [Other literary] detectives investigate crimes, but French's pursue mysteries, the kind that can never be completely solved, although we all spend a life's worth of days in the trying — The New Yorker
A gnarly, absorbing read, and a finely tuned slice of wintry gloom from one of the best thriller writers we have — The Guardian

A Force for Justice

Michael Clifford
Authors:

The full story of the single greatest scandal in Irish policing history - from the journalist who brought it into the national arena.When, in 2008, Sergeant Maurice McCabe complained of shoddy investigations into serious crime in County Cavan, nothing could have prepared him for what was in store.A career garda, McCabe never set out to be a whistleblower. However, over the following eight years, he exposed gross incompetence and corruption within An Garda Siochána. It ranged from a violent criminal being free to murder, to country-wide corruption in the policing of road safety.Along the way he paid a terrible price, enduring vilification, bullying and harassment by forces who wanted to silence him and his inconvenient truths. Worse still were the rumours of an extreme nature, which had a devastating effect on his whole family.McCabe's actions ultimately led to some of the biggest reforms of An Garda Siochána since the foundation of the state, caused major political upheaval, and culminated in a Tribunal established in 2017, to examine whether there had been a smear campaign against him within the force.A Force For Justice reveals the story behind the scenes, of one man struggling to survive in the most challenging of circumstances. It is a dramatic account of a garda sergeant's journey from a rural outpost into the heart of the Irish political and legal system.
