Peter Leonard showed remarkable maturity for a first-time novelist in Quiver, his debut novel. In Trust Me, he reaches for new heights as he crafts a classic noir thriller loaded with double- and triplecrosses. 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. Months later, Karen sees an opportunity when two thieves break into her house in the middle of the night. She proposes a scheme to Samir's safe. But almost immediately Karen realizes she's in 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 O'Clair, an over-the- hill heavy who works for Samir and wants the money for his own retirement; by Ricky, Samir's nephew who sees the money as a way to pay off his own massive gambling debts; by the thieves who've been double-crossed; and by two ruthless hit men who view the money as their stake in the American dream.
