Book Review: Trust No One by Paul Cleave


Trust No One has that ‘book within a book’ vibe to it, so I was excited when we chose it as our February Criminally Good Book Club read.

From the back cover:

Most of the world knows Jerry Grey by his crime writing pseudonym, Henry Cutter – a name that has been keeping readers at the edge of their seats for more than a decade. But now he’s been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of forty-nine, Jerry’s career is coming to an abrupt end.

His twelve books tell stories of brutal murders, of a world out of balance, of victims finding the darkest forms of justice. As his dementia continues to break down the wall between his real life and the lives of the characters, Jerry confesses his most terrible secret: the stories are real.

Okay, so I’ve got some very exciting news to share with you guys today – I’ve started a book club and it’s criminally good (see what I did there, if you didn’t, you cannot join the book club as we read crime, mystery and thriller books and that was detective skills 101 and you just failed!) I feel like you all know me and my humour by now, but in case you don’t, I must state, that was a joke, everybody’s welcome! Now, I’m pretty certain you all know how a book club works, or at least have a basic understanding but should you not, or should you be curious as to how this one is going to work, continue reading…

Where are we: you can find us on Instagram at criminallygoodbookclub

The book: Each month four books will be selected, for the first 2 weeks of the month you can vote for the book you’d like to read. The book with the most votes becomes the following month’s criminal read. As we’re starting in January, voting will open tomorrow (and close on the 12th Dec) to decide January’s book choice, giving everyone enough time to add it to their Christmas wish list. I’m going to give you lucky readers a look at the four books available before the votes open (there has to be some perks to following my blog, right?! Although, due to how well this book club has been received, I am feeling the pressure of this early reveal.) Continue reading “Criminally Good Book Club – Coming January 2017!”
