Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Back in print for the first time since 2005, this novel by the author of the Autumn and Hater series tackles one of the oldest themes in science fiction: first contact. Their vessel irreparably damaged, an alien mining crew comes to Earth in the hopes of remaining here until their homeworld can send out a ship to pick them up. Tom Winter, the story’s protagonist (hero doesn’t seem quite the right word), is immediately suspicious because, let’s face it, everything the aliens are doing—sharing scientific and medical advances, for example—is straight out of the alien-invasion playbook. Are the aliens really up to no good, or is Tom just being paranoid? The writing is not as visceral as Moody’s popular postapocalyptic novels, but that isn’t a bad thing: this story, with its slowly building sense of unease and multiple thematic undercurrents (probably the best being the frequent references to popular fictional alien-invasion stories by way of illustrating how our perceptions often conform to our expectations), needs a more delicate touch. Moody’s many fans will absolutely want to read this one. --David Pitt

Review

"Trust is a slow-burner and all the richer for it. The layers of characters and details of the story play out perfectly when matched with an ending you're not likely to forget. It's an outstanding novel, delivers in more ways than one, and is worthy of a place on the discerning fan's bookshelf. 10/10" --Starburst Magazine


"Trust is the latest in a long line of thought provoking, intelligent novels... For new readers this is an ideal starting point to discover this major British talent who despite his innovations and successes of the last decade, you get the feeling is only just getting started." --Shadowlocked

More About the Author

David Moody grew up on a diet of trashy horror and pulp science fiction. He worked as a bank manager before giving up the day job to write about the end of the world for a living. He has written a number of horror novels, including AUTUMN, which has been downloaded more than half a million times since publication in 2001 and spawned a series of sequels and a movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Film rights to HATER were snapped up by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad). Moody lives with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his pre-occupation with Armageddon.

This is far from a bad thing; it's a sign that the book is good enough to make me excited about what is to come.
Nathan Barnes
After the story and characters develop this story gets intense and the rest is great.

Mr. Moody's books don't shout at you from page one. They whisper until you are listening, hooked, then they blindside you. This is a good thing. I'm a huge fan of his work and this book was no exception. If you can find it, get yourself a copy. When an alien ship breaks down and they have to live amongst us should they be trusted? If I'm present at the end of the world I hope it ends like a David Moody book

This was a truly engrossing read right to the last page, it's exciting and gets you thinking about what you would do if you were in the main characters shoes. As I have come to expect from David Moody there are no heroes and the story is a little depressing, but who ever said the end of the world should be fun.

Not Moody's best compared to his others but his character descriptions and development was amazing Tom Winter was a truly well written lead and I could perfectly picture the beauty of Siobhan; but the entire book led up to an event that I thought may be greater...I wish there was more detail about his parents as well, I was at least expecting a monologue. I'm still glad I read the book, I felt myself daydreaming about it all week at work and excited to get home and read more, what I would give to head down to The Badger's Setting with Tom, Siobhan, James, and Rob and have a cold pint and a few laughs!

I really enjoyed this perspective of the alien encounter story. So often aliens land in the U.S. And the story is told from the usual American point of view, with the rest of the world barely rating a mention. I didn't like the main character, personality-wise, but he was well written and wasn't meant to be likeable. The most unbelievable thing in this otherwise well thought out story was how did such an negative guy get such a gorgeous honey of a girlfriend? A bit slow towards the middle, but that just gives the ending more power. All over, we'll done!

David Moody paints a realistic picture of what could happen when we blindly put out faith and/or trust in the unknown.

I really enjoyed this book - and I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out what to say because I don't want to spoil it for other who want to read it.
The main character is Tom - he has moved to Thatcham, a small coastal village in England and has retired - even though a young man - he wants to get away from the dog-eat-dog world. So we find Tom living in a small town. At this point Aliens arrive on Earth as their mining starship has a technical problem that they can't seem to fix. As a result the aliens are stranded for a period of time until their home planet can come and pick them up (reminds me of a recent experience I had of a car problem and sitting on the expressway until the tow truck arrived ). Anyway, there are approximately 300+ aliens stranded on earth - we earthlings try to make them feel at home here and are awed and amazed at the presence. The first part of the novels is about the daily updates on TV - kind of like a mini series - even the sci-fi mini-series "V" is mentioned. Slowly, the establishment starts to trust these new visitors, welcoming them to earth, and following them around like pop-stars. But, there are also doubters, people who don't believe they are here for "good" reasons". The book's main character, Tom Winter, is one of the doubters - he has questions. Part of the book describes this acceptance and the cultural conflicts of humans living with aliens. The main character, Tom, a rather distant and paranoid individual, grows progressively more so, isolating himself from just about everyone, as he tries to dig deeper into the aliens' reasons for being here on earth.
I have to admit I thought Tom was a bit to antagonistic at times ... but....I will stop there for fear of giving too much away

I will not lie. I am really enjoying books by David Moody. Autumn is a fantastic series, my favorite. This book was great, he doesn't just jump into things. Moody takes his time to tell the story and it feels like I am living as the character in his books. After the story and characters develop this story gets intense and the rest is great. I don't want to spoil anything, just read it!
