Trust Me is the chilling novel of psychological suspense and manipulation that award-winning author and renowned investigative reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan was born to write.

"Ryan dazzles--a must read."--Mary Kubica

"Mesmerizing!" --Lisa Gardner

"A knockout."--Booklist (starred review)

There are three sides to every story. Yours. Mine. And the truth.

An accused killer insists she's innocent of a heinous murder.A grieving journalist surfaces from the wreckage of her shattered life.Their unlikely alliance leads to a dangerous cat and mouse game that will leave you breathless.Who can you trust when you can't trust yourself?

Have you ever read a book that left you in a complete and utter mind frozen state? On that you just sit and stare into space, wondering how could an author be that brilliant? Yea, that’s me after reading TRUST ME. I mean, my God. I hadn’t even heard of this author before but I sure am adding her to my ever growing list of autobuy authors, for sure.

Mercer’s character was completely realistic. Her thoughts, pain of her own tragedy, confusion and passion to uncover the truth for her book about “Baby Boston”, all became my own. I felt myself becoming her, wanting to write down my own thoughts on Ashlyn, the mother on trial and accused of murdering her own baby. I mean, seriously? I was like Ashlyn should have been named Casey Anthony. What mother could harm their precious child? Trust me (no pun intended!), when I tell you I wouldn’t!

Reading this novel left me feeling like I just got off the most intense, most twisted,  most emotional rollercoaster ride ever (and that is saying something because I’ve NEVER been on a coaster before!). I felt like I would just begin to piece it all together and Ryan, with masterful skill, would throw something else into the mix. Magnificent! This novel is my top read of 2019 so far. It’s brilliantly chiseled into a 5 star read that I will not soon forget. Psychological mind blowing thrills at it’s finest, that’s a fact!
