Jeff Abbott states the circumstances when you are to answer someone's "Trust Me" call

Sometimes, summer blockbusters don’t arrive in theaters. Sometimes, they show up at your bookstore. Jeff Abbott’s Trust Me is a summer blockbuster worthy of the name. Like many a thriller, Trust Me starts with the bad guys. There are two men, one old and one dressed in a gray suit. They are in a park in London and they are discussing how many terrorists attacks they could unleash with the fifty million dollars the old man, a Middle Eastern prince, is giving to the man in the gray suit. Unbeknownst to them, a third party is there, a lady named Jane, listening in. Armed with this new knowledge, she telephones someone and says, “We start tonight. Rock and roll.” Rock and roll is certainly one way of describing the intense action of the rest of the book. At the center of all this rocking and rolling is Luke Dantry, a twenty-four-year-old University of Texas graduate student. He’s a psychology major and has been helping his step-father, Henry Shawcross, his only living relative after his parents died in two separate accidents, conduct research into extremists groups on the Internet. Specifically, they want to find the radical folks online who may be the next Timothy McVeigh, people who will take their ranting to the next level. After a brief visit by Henry in which Luke delivers the latest reports on these online nut cases, Luke takes his stepfather to the airport. On the way back to his car, Luke finds a gun in his ribs. Now, he’s kidnapped. A desperate man, Eric, tells him to drive to Houston. Bit by bit, Luke learns that he is to be the ransom for Eric’s girlfriend. Chained to a bed in a cabin in the middle of the east Texas woods, Luke has to escape and stay out of the hands of the bad guys as well as the police who want him in connection with the murder of a homeless man, a man Eric shot and Luke witnessed. The chase is on. From Houston to Chicago to New York to Paris, Luke has to stay one step ahead of the authorities and the members of the mysterious Night Road, the group of extremists whose sole desire is to inflict damage upon America. They’ve already started, too. An explosion near Houston is linked to other acts of terror across the country. Luke knows they are tied together and he must figure out a way to stop it while simultaneously clear his name. As a writer, the structure of Abbott’s book was fantastic. You know what they’re thinking and what they don’t know. Later on in the novel, you come to know things Luke has to find out for himself.. Abbott’s approach ups the intensity and tension. We know who is coming for Luke, even if he doesn’t. Armed with our omniscient viewpoint, we know the hired killers are bad, bad people and Luke best get out of whatever situation he’s in. Readers who enjoy a thriller with an intricate, complex puzzle will love Trust Me. Good and bad guys change sides, double-crossing, backstabbing and betraying one another. Each time the reader attempts to connect the dots, the numbers change, spinning the evidence, throwing suspicion on another character and sometimes providing unexpected support for Luke. Trust Me is like a malicious game of musical chairs, with the national security of The United States perched precariously on the edge of disaster. The ending is guaranteed to shock even the most experienced crime thriller fans. The masks are removed, alliances revealed and the good, bad and ugly are identified, and for more information, please buy the book. Trust Me is recommended for readers who enjoy fast-paced, suspenseful, action-packed thrillers. Just make sure you have plenty of time to read, because you won’t want to put it down.
