Grief-stricken journalist Mercer Hennessey, the heroine of this intriguing standalone from Mary Higgins Clark Award winner Ryan (Say No More and four other Jane Ryland novels), believes there are "no more good days" after her husband and three-year-old daughter die in a car crash, until she's assigned to write a true crime book about the Baby Boston murder trial. She gains a renewed sense of purpose to avenge two-year-old Tasha Nicole Bryant, whose body was dumped in Boston harbor. Tasha Nicole's mother, Ashlyn Bryant, is accused of her daughter's murder, and Mercer is sure she's guilty. But when Ashlyn is found not guilty, Mercer must write a redemption story instead. After spending time with Ashlyn, Mercer begins to wonder whether Ashlyn is in fact innocent and whether the book will be Ashlyn's redemption story or her own. Despite some sluggish moments, this sinister tale twists to a satisfying conclusion. Ryan casts a revealing light on media sensationalism, ethics in journalism, and the nature of truth.

Very Interesting Form with a twisty plot
One of a kind. The “ truth” of the crime is not important, the book’s all about perception. It can be confusing at times, and even in the end nearly nothing is explained about the murder. The process stuns nevertheless.
Unpredictable and Captivating
I have been looking forward to this book since I first heard about it, and it did not disappoint. A conflicted protagonist with a compelling voice, fascinating supporting characters, and a unique plot combine to make TRUST ME unpredictable and captivating. This is one story where you just can't be sure what's going to happen next, the hallmark of a good suspense novel (and kudos to the publisher for keeping the blurb spoiler-free).
