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.

'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. Trust Me, I'm Dead is confident, funny, full of surprises. Highly recommended.' - Renee Taylor, author of The Wild Card and These Two Hands

Review quote

Praise for Trust Me, I'm Dead: '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' - Shots Mag 'On show in Trust Me, I'm Dead is finesse with character development and plot, in this case thermostatically synced to the reader's imagination' - The Westsider 'This novel is a page turner and the action is pretty much full on; kidnap, murder, gangster wars, a mcguffin and a decent cop' - NB Magazine 'Gripping and disturbing, Clark delves into dark places close to home. Trust Me I'm Dead will linger in your mind after you have read it' - Leigh Russell
