Summary

Stephen Hawking said, "If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

A world brought up on stories of alien invasions and wars with other planets is asked to open its arms to 300 aliens who are stranded in their crippled mining ship. The eyes of the entire world are focused on the village of Thatcham: the site of the first confirmed contact with an alien species.

Their arrival affects everyone. Barriers are broken down, perspectives are altered, and the life of every single person on the planet is changed forever as science fiction becomes science fact.

But not everyone is convinced. Some people are more cautious. Tom Winter knows that if he's right about the aliens, more than seven billion others are wrong.

"Trust is a slow-burner and all the richer for it. The layers of characters and details of the story play out perfectly when matched with an ending you're not likely to forget. It's an outstanding novel, delivers in more ways than one, and is worthy of a place on the discerning fan's bookshelf. 10/10" (Starburst Magazine)

"Trust is the latest in a long line of thought provoking, intelligent novels.... For new readers this is an ideal starting point to discover this major British talent who despite his innovations and successes of the last decade, you get the feeling is only just getting started." (Shadowlocked)

HARD START but Worth it!

This story was good overall but it took FOREVER to get ANYWHERE! I'm serious for myself it took a LONG TIME to get Interested or Care for any one character INCLUDING the Main! The narrator was Good overall but his emotional range was Limited at best, But Overall he was fine. The Second half for me, was Worth the price of a credit for this story! The Ending was Different and New which is Great while holding onto Just Enough of what's worked to make you feel Comfortable!!!

Great until it wasn’t

I’ve read reviews from David Moody’s first book in the “Haters”series that say the first book was nothing more than a setup for Book 2. I hope that is the case with this book because it is very well written and enjoyable until the deeply anticlimactic and unsatisfying end. Expect the terrible disappointment you get when you reach the end of a M. Night Shyamalan movie. Except in this case, you’ve lost almost 500 minutes of your life versus ~90 for a movie.

A thriller right to the end!

Sometimes you have an inkling of what might happen in a book, and you perhaps yell at the characters "Don't go into the basement!" and they never listen. Yet you continue to follow them, expecting the worst, hoping for the best. This is what David Moody's Trust did to me. You get pulled into the lives of these people in the small English town and walk with them through thick and thin, hoping for the best. The ending left me very satisfied and I would highly recommend this book.
