Summary

The stunning new novel from the number one international best-selling author of Scrublands and 'master of Australian noir' Chris Hammer.

On a bright sunny day in Port Silver, ex-Journalist Martin Scarsden misses a call from his girlfriend, Mandy. Checking his voicemail later, all he hears is her terrified scream before the phone cuts off.

Back at the house, he finds a policeman unconscious on the floor and Mandy gone.

So starts a twisting tale of intrigue and danger, as Martin probes the past of the woman he loves, a woman who has buried her former life deep.

And for the first time, Mandy finds denial impossible, now that the body of a man has been discovered - a man to whom she was engaged to marry. It's time to face her demons once and for all; it's time she learned how to trust. 

Set in a Sydney riven with corruption and nepotism, privilege and power, Trust is the third riveting novel from award-winning and internationally acclaimed writer Chris Hammer.

My new favourite author!!

Just loving these books set in Oz!! So well written, a gripping plot & such a variety of interesting characters!! There is murder, plot & intrigue, but the murders are not the main focus, more a sign of a greater conspiracy that the main character, a journalist, has accidentally been caught up in. I also love that they’re not gruesome or psychological, instead each book cleverly unravels a complex plot, enhanced by being set in interesting locations and filled with fascinating characters that aren’t just simply good, bad or an obvious plot device!

Can’t recommend them more highly... gripping stories &, thankfully, an excellent narrator too!! Start with Scrublands (Book 1), if you can, then Silver (Book2). They are each a story in their own right, each fabulous, but to fully understand what’s going on you’ll want the backstory. Enjoy... and, Chris, keep writing, I can’t wait for more!!
