She hasn't seen her brother in years. Now, he's dead.

When Judi Westerholme finds out her estranged brother has been murdered, she assumes it's connected to his long term drug addiction. Returning home, she is shocked to discover he had been clean for years, had a wife - now missing - a child and led a respectable life. But if he had turned his life around, why was he killed in a drug deal shooting? And where is his wife?

Desperate to know what really happened, Judi sets out to uncover the truth, even though it means confronting her own traumatic past. But she's not the only one looking for answers...

She turned her back on her brother before. Should she trust him now?

With a gutsy, unapologetic protagonist, Trust Me, I'm Dead is a gritty and bold crime thriller that explores the sacrifices people will make for their families.

Review quote

A great mystery that I found somewhat addictive. The pace and setting were spot on and I really relished looking forward to the next in the series. -- Leah Moyse * Reflections Of A Reader * Trust Me, I'm Dead, is fast paced, well structured, twists and turns on almost every page - some brutal, some tender, and hallelujah, Clark follows the great rule of writing crime novels. Keep the suspense level high - make the reader wait. Halfway through I nearly flipped to the end but I restrained myself. Well done Renee.
Trust Me, I'm Dead is confident, funny, full of surprises. Clark's hero Judi, is grumpy, resourceful, stubborn, cynical and underneath all that, carefully hidden, she has a heart. What's not to like? -- RenA (c)e Taylor * RenA (c)e's Wednesday Busk * a whodunnit worthy of a binge alert -- Peter Dewar * The Westsider * Sherryl Clark is a worthy addition to the crime writing fraternity, and Trust Me, I'm Dead is a book you should definitely add to your reading list -- Adrian Magson * Shots Mag * This felt like an impeccably planned treasure hunt with tension interwoven into the story to lasso my attention right to the end. I'll be watching for the author's next crime fiction offering! * A Knight's Reads *
