Overview

The characters truly speak for themselves in George V. Higgins’ chilling tour de force about deceit, blackmail and the importance of paying one’s dues.
 
Ultimate recidivist Earl Beale has learnt little from his early release from jail and narrow escape from being drafted, seemingly nothing can cure him of his criminal ways. Obsessed by money, and with a keen eye for scheming, he’s the kind of car salesman no one can trust. When suddenly some unfinished business from his past catches up with him, it’s dubitable whether he’s going to successfully extricate himself from this one.
 
A witty yet stinging tale of the dangers of putting money and self-interest above everything else, Trust is about a man with no scruples.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Corrupt, city-hardened characters vie for money and power, are ruled by destiny and are driven to tragic ends. ``The plot, complicated yet thin, will disappoint Higgins devotees,'' lamented PW. (Nov.)
