ARC Arrival: Trust Me by Peter Leonard

Trust Me by Peter Leonard

Publisher: Minotaur Books

About the book: An ensemble cast of schemers, losers, thugs, con-men, and killers runs amok in Trust Me, Peter Leonard's high-speed thriller that careens through the neighborhoods of Detroit, pausing only for the occasional flirtation - or to reload.

When two thieves, Bobby and Lloyd, break into a wealthy house, they encounter Karen, who, instead of being scared, sizes the duo up and tries out a tempting proposition on them: How would you two like to make some real money? Soon the crooks have been roped into Karen's plan to rob her ex-boyfriend Samir, a shady bookmaker to who she had entrusted three hundred grand of her own, which Samir never returned after their breakup. Samir is guarded by a crew of heavies, one of whom is ex-cop O'Clair, a collector on the lookout for a certain individual whose bets are long past due - a gambling addict and sometimes-thief named Bobby. Yes, the very same.

Having assembled her crew, Karen believes her scheme to be foolproof, but then, she's never encountered fools like these. The robbery turns fatal, and soon Karen is on the run with the recovered three hundred thousand plus a whole lot more. The rest of the players are after her and simultaneously out to get each other. It's a tangled situation from which no one can escape without some serious help, but if this collection of backstabbers has one rule, it's Don't trust anybody. (FSB Associates Book Announcement)
