Those Who Trespass: A Novel of Television and Murder (ISBN 0767913817) is a 1998 novel by US television personality Bill O'Reilly. The story focuses on the revenge a television journalist exacts on network staff after disputes very similar to O'Reilly's real tensions with CBS (such as one involving Falklands War footage). The revenge takes the form of a series of graphically described violent ritualistic murders [1]. O'Reilly's spoken word recordings of the book's sex scenes have often been featured on contemporary US liberal talk radio shows.

Plot

The antagonist is a tall, non-nonsense television journalist named Shannon Michaels, described as the product of two Celtic parents, is pushed out by Global News Network, and systematically murders the people who ruined his career.


Michaels stalks the woman who forced his resignation from the network and throws her off a balcony. He next murders a television research consultant who had advised the local station to dismiss him: he buries the guy in beach sand up to his neck and lets him slowly drown. Finally, during a break in the Radio and Television News Directors Association convention, he slits the throat of the station manager. The book describes each of these killings—the careful planning, the suffering of the victim, the act itself—in graphic detail. The Radio and Television News Directors Association is a membership organization of radio, television and online news directors, producers, executives and educators with about 3,000 members. ...


Meanwhile, the protagonist, a straight-talking Irish-American New York City homicide detective named Tommy O’Malley, is charged with solving the murders that Michaels has committed, while competing with Michaels for the heart of Ashley Van Buren, a blond, sexy aristocrat turned crime columnist. The protagonist Michaels and antagonist O'Malley are thinly veiled versions of O'Reilly.
