Review: TRUST ME, Angela Clarke

Trust Me, by Angela Clarke. Review by Barbara Copperthwaite

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



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.


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.
