Review: TRUST ME, Angela Clarke


‘Fast plot, snappy dialogue, breathless pacing; Angela Clarke does it again’

THEY SAY

YOU SAW IT HAPPEN. DIDN’T YOU?

What do you do if you witness a crime…but no-one believes you?

When Kate sees a horrific attack streamed live on her laptop, she calls the police in a state of shock. But when they arrive, the video has disappeared – and she can’t prove anything. Desperate to be believed, Kate tries to find out who the girl in the video could be – and who attacked her.

Freddie and Nas are working on a missing persons case, but the trail has gone cold. When Kate contacts them, they are the only ones to listen and they start to wonder – are the two cases connected?

Dark, gripping, and flawlessly paced, Trust Me is the brilliant third novel in the hugely popular social media murderer series.

I SAY

Fast plot, snappy dialogue, breathless pacing; Angela Clarke does it again.

The fabulous thing about her Social Media novels is that you know exactly what you’re going to get – and once more she delivers. In Freddie and Nas, the author has created two characters readers can genuinely engage with. I love their constant bickering and their differences which only make their partnership stronger.

The world of social media can be a terrifying place, and Angela Clarke reveals it to us in all its ugly truth in this third installment of the series. As well as being a cracking thriller that is as fast-paced as I hoped, this time there seemed to be a message behind the crimes and the writing, with a strong theme running through the book of women not being believed, women disappearing, and of course women doing the crime fighting. I really enjoyed that aspect, and it added an extra depth and dimension.

I whizzed through this book in no time. My advice? Set aside a day, settle down, and fasten your seatbelt for Trust Me.
