Trust Me

Peter Leonard
NZD $24.99

An explosive noir thriller full of shady hit men, double-crosses, car chases and shoot-outs.

When Bobby and Lloyd decide to rob local restaurant owner Lou Starr's home in the night, they don't reckon on being propositioned about an even bigger scam by Lou's so-called girlfriend Karen. But after yet another bad decision in her life Karen has been looking for a way out and, more specifically, a way to recover her life savings, stolen from her by the treacherous Samir. And so set in motion is a plan that sounds all too simple.

Following his much loved debut novel, Quiver, Peter Leonard returns to the mean streets of Detroit with a high octane novel of money, guns and some serious double crossing. Featuring a virtuoso cast of bad guys, a disgraced ex-cop who finds himself in more trouble than he bargained for, and an anti-heroine to die for, Trust Me is the superb sophomore novel from one of the emergent voices in crime writing today.
