Trust Me : The first mistake Karen Delaney made was entrusting $300,000 to her boyfriend, Samir, the head of an illegal bookmaking operation. The second was breaking up with him - because Samir holds a $300,000 grudge. A few months later, Karen sees a way to get her money back when two thieves break into her house in the middle of the night. She proposes a scheme to steal Samirâs safe, but Karen soon realizes sheâs in way over her head as things begin to spin out of control. Trust Me moves at breakneck speed through the affluent suburbs of Detroit and Chicago as Karen is pursued by OâClair, an ex-con/ex-cop who works for Samir and wants the money for his own retirement; by Ricky, Samirâs nephew, who sees the money as a way to pay off his own escalating gambling debts; by the thieves whoâve been double-crossed; and by two ruthless hit men who view the money as their stake in the American dream. With relentless suspense, striking characters, and plot twists that will leave you white-knuckled, Trust Me marks the continuation of a powerful new voice in crime fiction and more than delivers on the promise of Peter Leonardâs talent.
