What the publisher says:
YOU SAW IT HAPPEN. DIDN’T YOU?
What do you do if you witness a murder…but no-one believes you?
When Kate sees a horrific murder 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 her killer is.
Freddie and Nas are working on a missing persons case, but tensions in the police force are running high and time is ticking. 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.
What I say:
I had been looking forward to this novel enormously and I am relieved to say I was not disappointed. Follow Me and Watch Me were interlinked stories where it helped to have read the first before reading the second but Trust Me is an entirely new story. The relationship between Freddie and Nas is explored further and we are also treated to a little more about the personal lives of the two of them.
Kate, their witness, comes to them after she witnesses a murder streamed online and she has struggled to get anyone else to listen to her. Freddie and Nas do believe her and gradually they uncover the truth whilst also working on a missing persons enquiry. Unlike the previous novels the viewpoint changes between Kate, Freddie, Nas and someone who is only described as A. The different points of view added to the tension and helped the story move on at a cracking pace
I was kept enthralled by this book and was immensely pleased to start seeing more of Freddie’s personal life. Hopefully Nas’ life will be opened up a little more in the next novel.
Rating 5 out of 5
