Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Luke Dantry, while working as an intern for his stepfather's think-tank in Austin, Tex., stumbles on a group of home-grown terrorists known as the Night Road (because of their nocturnal Internet chatter) in this furiously paced if less than compelling thriller from Abbott (Collision). The Night Road has held several warmup activities—plane crashes, train derailments, chemical explosions—and is now gearing up for Hellfire, the code name for a secret mission that's supposed to be the mother of all terrorist acts. As Dantry scrambles from city to city (Houston, Chicago, New York) to thwart Hellfire and bring its planners to justice, the story strikes a number of false notes—convenient plot twists, hard-to-swallow dialogue and a main character who all too easily goes from wimpy grad student to brawny crime fighter over the course of just a few days. Still, Abbott has an instinctive feel for how to draw adrenaline from words on a page. (July)

I am not a regular reader of crime/thrillers in the commercial fiction genre, but have recently been reading a number of them. As with most others, if you aren't used to reading much purely commercial fiction, it is surprising how poor the writing is. Occasionally one can tell that the author sat and pondered the possibilities, and carefully chose his words, but not often. The language is just too common; street language, basically, which I suppose largely defines the difference between literary and commercial fiction. It's like reading a TV cop show. (Why didn't the editor encourage Abbott not to begin two sentences in a row with "but"?)

The first two reviewers don't seem to have paid attention to the book. Luke isn't a low-life, nor is he a "lonely braggart" by any means. He is duped by his stepfather and drawn into a real mess, which then has this psychology student fighting off terrorists like a pro in order to save himself and a woman he has become attached to, and to clear up some mysteries from his own past.

Like watching a TV show with a similar plot, one can get hooked and want to continue to find out what happens, but as another reviewer mentioned, the plot will induce a lot of "oh, right" comments from readers, with unreal and unbelievable occurrences left and right. Abbott tries to sound like a well-researched writer with book recommendations for readers interested in terrorism, but make no mistake: this is not a book that presents a real-life picture of global terrorism, nor is it filled with details that hint at a researched effort, unless you consider name-dropping a pistol ("Glock 9") or the US State Department ("State") to count. Abbott's terrorists don't behave with much professionalism or secrecy, and come off rather as a bunch of unorganized goons.

I read the book, but wish I had audio-booked it as a jogging companion instead.

This book never held my interest. I realize that it's fiction, but this one was too over the top for me.

That being said, at least I know that the group was called "Night Road" not "Black Road".

That reviewer needs to spend more time actually reading the books than cutting and pasting the book description then calling it a review.

Jeff Abbott is a good writer, but this plot was over-the-top. Any thriller requires some suspension of belief as the hero fights evil, but this was just too much. It really bordered on farce. I finished it because I paid for it (unlike library books which I abandon when I don't like them), but I really can't recommend it.

This is my first Jeff Abbott novel and it will not be the last. I have already started reading the second. In this novel, a young man finds himself thrust into a war between a highly organized anti-terrorist organization and a terrorist organization. The young man, Luke Dantry,became a target after doing research for his step-father on extremists who post incendiary comments on the Internet. Then after seeing his step-father off on a flight,Luke finds himself kidnapped and embrioled in a flight to avoid two assassins who are chasing him.

The author ekes out clue after clue until you come to surprising climax at the end. A believable tale of a young man caught up into events and a battle he never knew existed.

A good read.

This is puzzling me. It seems like the reviews for this book are either, "I don't like it," or are so cheesy and phoney sounding that I suspect they're left by friends of the author. Well, I listened to the audio version of this book. I don't know the author, but I liked the book.

Was it a favorite that I'll want to listen to time and time again? No, but there are a lot of good books that I feel that way about. Was this one of those books I shall carry about for days, thinking about and going, "Oh yeah, THAT'S what was going on! I got it now." No. But not every book can be deep and thought provoking and I don't think I'd want to read nothing but thought provoking books. Sometimes, I just want to listen to a book for what it is, a story meant merely to entertain. And that's exactly what Trust Me is. It's a book you listen to when you're on a trip and want something enjoyable to take away some of the boredom from the road. It's a book you listen to while you're at the gym to take away some of the boredom of a work out.

The book moves at a fast pace, fast enough to make the time pass quickly. I found myself sometimes wishing the characters had a little bit of down time, instead of constantly running, but after finishing it, I think it was better that way. Yes, I agree that some of the twists and turns were obvious, but not all of them (at least not to me) and even if you figure out something, it doesn't mean you can't enjoy seeing how the author gets them from point A to Point B.

Some reviewers implied that the book seems unpolished. I don't know if listening to the audio version made a difference, but I didn't find that at all. The person reading the book had a good voice and I never felt the writing "stumble.

I began reading this yesterday, and persevered into the evening, but it didn't improve. The plot is elementary, and the characters are not credible. So it's joined the other unfinished novels, because as I get older I'm becoming more picky.
