The Detectives on Life Elsewhere


Dublin Murder Squad, detective Antoinette Conway is hard-edged, gloriously rough-speaking and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Antoinette, the narrator in Tana French’s new novel, The Trespasser, takes the reader on a roller-coaster of whodunit journey. Tana is a wickedly clever writer who uses her past acting experience to aid in conjuring up brilliant dialogue and descriptions. So real is Tana’s story-telling of a detective’s daily life, you could easily believe The Trespassers is a true-crime account. The gritty tale with its intriguing twists and turns also captures the complications of relationships, be they personal or in the workplace for detective Antoinette Conway.

In Christine Negroni’s new book, the detectives are real. Veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator, Negroni draws upon aviation science, performance technology, and interviews with pilots, engineers, human factors specialists, and crash survivors, to chronicle history’s most enigmatic aircraft crashes. The Crash Detectives: Investigating The World’s Most Mysterious Air Disasters is a fascinating exploration of how humans and machines fail. The Crash Detectives is an alternately terrifying and inspiring book that will change the way you view air travel.

Make sure you don’t miss the “Detectives” edition of Life Elsewhere with Tana French and Christine Negroni.
