Detective Antoinette Conway yearned to work on the Dublin Police Department murder squad for years, but she’s finding it’s not what she expected. Disliked by her colleagues and the butt of their jokes, she and partner Detective Stephen Moran work the weekend night shift and are given the least interesting cases. When a young, pretty woman is murdered, Conway and Moran are pressured by the department brass to close the case quickly and press charges against her boyfriend. Complicating matters, Conway is being stalked by a shadowy figure. Will Conway and Moran listen to their gut instincts or will they succumb to the pressure to close the case?
Initially, I had a hard time liking The Trespasser, mainly because the protagonist didn’t seem likeable and because I couldn’t get into the rhythm of the Irish brogue. Once I read about 50 pages, though, I became entranced. Clever and unpredictable, The Trespasser is a very good read!
