My Review

It’s the norm for everyday society, we are an online generation. Surfing the net, we chat, we comment, we watch videos. What happens when you witness something on a live stream feed, a sexual assault, Kate did………………Trust Me

Kate is a character held in high regard, a pillar of society, a headmistress at the local school, she witnessed a sexual assault online, the video content was removed, the evidence gone and no other witnesses. The police are reluctant to pursue the matter, who will take Kate seriously. Freddie and Nas are investigating a missing person associated with gangs, they cross paths with the missing person’s report of the girl online, could they be the same person, is it gang related.

Freddie is a character rebuffed by many of the police officers she works with due to her being a civilian. She is actually quite a wild character with some of the antics she gets up to, she doesn’t seem to care too much about what people think. I like the fact she thinks out of the box, doesn’t always follow protocol, it sometimes gets results other times lands Freddie in trouble. Nas on the other hand follows protocol, she can be quite a stiff character who has built herself a backbone that has no bend I put this down to Nas being career driven and working in a vastly male organisation. Freddie and Nas are like chalk and cheese, very different characters but working in a partnership that brings the best out in each other.

Trust Me is the third instalment in the Social Media Murder books, Angel has produced a plotline which is highly feasible due to our love of Social Media and the Internet as a whole. Once something is posted it can’t be unseen, you can delete it but someone will already have seen it.

Angela has written an unforgettable book……………………..Trust Me
