Trust Me, I'm Dead Kindle Edition
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 CWA DEBUT DAGGER FOR UNPUBLISHED FIRST NOVEL
She hasn't seen her brother in years. Now, he's dead.
When Judi Westerholme finds out her estranged brother has been murdered, she assumes it's connected to his long term drug addiction. Returning home, she is shocked to discover he had been clean for years, had a wife – now missing – a child and led a respectable life. But if he had turned his life around, why was he killed in a drug deal shooting? And where is his wife?
Desperate to know what really happened, Judi sets out to uncover the truth, even though it means confronting her own traumatic past. But she's not the only one looking for answers...
With a gutsy, unapologetic protagonist, Trust Me, I'm Dead is a gritty and bold crime thriller that explores the sacrifices people will make for their families.
'Gripping and disturbing, Clark delves into dark places close to home. Trust Me, I’m Dead will linger in your mind after you have read it' - Leigh Russell, author of the bestselling Geraldine Steel series

Her gutsy character is shown in how she deals with sudden and painful events and her determination to resolve the mystery of what her brother has hidden and why he was killed. With a developing relationship between Judi and the main detective investigating the case, complications build to a dramatic climax.
Really enjoyed reading this and staying up very late to find out what happened in the end!

I went into this book without any knowledge of the genre or having read anything else from Sherryl Clark, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it right up my alley.
My knowledge of Australia is limited to Neighbours, and Home & Away from three decades ago, Dame Edna, and Russell Crowe, but the locations were well explained so I didn't feel at all disorientated or lost.
I really liked the characters and felt an outpouring of empathy for Judi throughout. It's good to see another book with a strong female protagonist who refuses to play the victim, and just wants to get on with things. Her reluctance to get involved in the beginning is completely understandable and well explained as you read on.
The sense of tension didn't really come into play until around a quarter of the way in, but it felt like a starter pistol; a sharp, loud, bang and away you go.
Judi is a bit snappy but I think you would be too given her history. It makes her more authentic and believable, and the book was all the better for it.
Overall, Trust Me, I'm Dead is a great read and I'm happy to recommend it to readers of Crime thrillers. I will be reading the second book involving Judi, Dead and Gone, momentarily.
To start off, I want to say I liked the book a lot. The characters were portrayed in a realistic way, and even though I wasn’t a huge fan of Judi at first, I appreciated the way her personality developed over the course of the story. The pacing was mostly good too. The first 20% of the book was a bit slow for my tastes, but it got much better when things kicked off in earnest. I also loved that the book was set in Australia—it’s a setting we don't see often enough in fiction!
I would read more books by this author.
She does indulge in some aggravating behaviour, which puts her into unnecessary danger a few times in the story, but it was good to see her turns of intelligence at critical points....not just a damsel in distress.
