Book Review: Trust Me
(Cover Me Book 2)
By L.A. Witt
(Blurb) On the scene of a multiple murder that’s grisly even for a veteran homicide detective, Brian Clifton is stunned when one of the victims bears an uncanny resemblance to his boyfriend, James. As the similarities keep piling up, so do the bodies… and the evidence pointing to James as the killer.
Since long before the shooting, James has been dishonest. He’s been evasive. Oh, and there’s that minor detail he withheld from Brian about being a gambling-addicted drug dealer.
James may not be the best boyfriend in the world, but he begs Brian to believe he’s no killer. In fact, whoever did pull the trigger undoubtedly wants to finish what they started, and Brian is the only one James trusts to keep him safe.
But how much is Brian willing to risk to protect a man he may not even know? (End Copy)
Brian is a dedicated detective who loves his job and hates the way his job forces him to stay in the closet. His partner and a few choice friends know about him and they are protective – protective of his secret and protective of his heart. They don’t like James and want Brian to divest himself of this anchor from around his neck. But Brian thinks there is something about James that he wants to further explore. When a multiple murder brings Brian and his partner Max Kessler to a horrid scene, Brian begins to wonder if there is more to James than he wants to know about.
I was hooked from the first paragraph. I wanted to know who this James was and why he was avoiding Brian. I wanted to know why Brian felt compelled to stick with this guy. Further, I wanted to know more about the murder. Multiple victims, some that seemed innocent and were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Why had this gone down as it did and who did it? Questions that Brian, his partner, and I shared. Trust Me, was the last thing I thought. I wondered who would figure it out first.
Witt pulled me along by interjecting clues and snippets of information throughout the book. She gave Brian some of the answers he sought which caused me to read on. I enjoy a mystery, especially when I have no clue to the ending and Witt did a god job keeping me clueless throughout the book. At one point I thought I had it figured out, only to realize she did a good job steering me in the wrong direction. I laughed at my cockiness and allowed myself to smile as I continued to read.
The ending of Trust Me was definitely far from anything I had envisioned. Spoiler alert – It’s not what you think it will be! Have fun with this one, you will be surprised.
