The stunning new novel from the No.1 international bestselling author of Scrublands and ‘master of Australian noir’ Chris Hammer.

On a bright sunny day in Port Silver, ex-journalist Martin Scarsden misses a call from his girlfriend Mandy. Checking his voicemail later, all he hears is her terrified scream before the phone cuts off.

Back at the house, he finds a policeman unconscious on the floor, and Mandy gone.

So starts a twisting tale of intrigue and danger, as Martin probes the past of the woman he loves, a woman who has buried her former life deep.

And for the first time, Mandy finds denial impossible, now the body of a man has been discovered – a man to whom she was engaged to marry. It’s time to face her demons once and for all; it’s time she learned how to trust.

Set in a Sydney riven with corruption and nepotism, privilege and power, TRUST is the third riveting novel from award-winning and internationally acclaimed writer Chris Hammer.

  1. Hedley’s Books

    The author of Scrublands and Silver continues the story of journalist/author Martin Scarsden and his partner Mandalay Blonde, this time set in Sydney against a backdrop of power and corruption. Martin is thrown by revelations of Manday’s hidden past that threatens to destroy them. A master class in writing by Australia’s best in the thriller genre.
