It all starts with a phone call from the dead.

Mia Quinn is on the phone with Colleen, her best friend and coworker, when the unthinkable happens: she hears the sound of a gunshot. And Colleen's death is an eerie echo of the murder of another Seattle prosecutor who was also gunned down at home four years earlier.

Mia's life has already been turned upside down by the recent death of her husband. Now a single parent to a teenager and a toddler, she is struggling to hold on to their house. Meanwhile, her son has turned moody and secretive, and her daughter is suffering from mysterious nightmares.

When the DA asks her to head up the investigation into Colleen's death and its connections to the earlier murder, Mia agrees?if he'll also let her investigate the suicide of a teenager who may have been bullied to death. Partnered with irascible homicide detective Charlie Carlson, Mia finds that many people could have wanted Colleen dead, including people in Mia's life she thought she could trust.

As Mia races to figure out who gunned down Colleen in cold blood, she uncovers more secrets than she bargained for. Has she been wrong to trust those closest to her?

Will she put the pieces together before it's too late? A Matter of Trust is a riveting tale of love, loyalty?and murder.

A new one for me
5 stars By Sandi, Apr 12 2018
This was the first book I have ready by Lis Wiehl. I don't usually read too many mysterythrillers but I enjoyed this one. The main character had a few seperate issues in her life and switching between them kept the reader interested and the story line moving. It wasn't too graphic, which is my main reason for staying away from these kinds of novels. While some of the story lines were resolved, some were left open, ready for he next book in the series.

Great
4 stars By Harsh, Jul 14 2016
Love the style of book with suspense and murder. It captures you from the very beginning and you're drawn into the murder. You are left a bit confused over what happened to Mia's husband, but it gets revealed throughout the book. I would recommend this book to lovers of crime and suspense.

Good read
3 stars By Jessica R. Wakefield, Nov 02 2013
This is my second Lis Wiehl book and whilst I liked it, I didn't love it. Quite simply it didn't grab my heart or attention. I struggled to get into the book and although the mystery was solved (it was a decent mystery actually), this book is clearly headed for second book featuring this character as some personal plot points were left unanswered obviously waiting for a second book. Whilst it was okay, I doubt I would pick up another book in this series.

A page turner
4 stars By Wendy, Apr 22 2013
A Matter of Trust is suspense mystery. Mia, a defence attorney is on the phone to her Colleen, her colleague and good friend when Colleen is shot. Mia, herself a new widow, is desperately trying to hold her family together. However, she feels driven to find out how murdered her friend. As it turns out, she, and the detective assigned to the case solve more than one murder.

This is the first book I read on my new Kindle and it was a page turner. But can I even use that cliche when it was an eBook? 

This is the first in a series, I'm keen to read more of the series. Mia is an realistic character that surely doesn't have her life altogether. It'll be interesting to see how things develop for her down the track.
