English Summary/英文概要: A darkly funny memoir and investigation into the charms and crimes of the untrustworthy

Romance scams, pyramid schemes, bogus debts and fake news, the world is awash with confidence tricksters and swindlers. But what happens if the fraudster is your lover?

It has been said that trust is a risk masquerading as a promise and, as Hemingway suggested, ‘The way to make people trustworthy is to trust them’. Once we have fallen under the spell of malevolent hucksters, their power is real, as is the loss of self and hope when the spell breaks.

A hybrid memoir and a personal detective story, Trust is an exploration of what it means to trust, why we trust, and what happens when trust is betrayed. With a particular view to fraud and corruption within the hallowed walls of sandstone universities, Ryckmans brings to light the oft subtle, brutal nature of the control that fraudsters have over their victims, and shows the deep impacts their actions have on others personally and professionally. The cover up – sometimes said to be worse than the crime – has insidious effects.

Trust is a fractured fable. It is darkly funny, wistful, and spare in tone and approach.

Chinese Summary/中文概要: 愛情騙局、金字塔計劃、虛假債務和假新聞,這個世界充斥著騙子和詐騙。 但如果騙子是你的情人,會發生什麼事?

有人說,信任是一種偽裝成承諾的風險,正如海明威所說,「讓人們值得信賴的方法就是信任他們」。 一旦我們被惡毒的小販迷住了,他們的力量就是真實的,當咒語被打破時,自我和希望的喪失也是如此。

一部混合回憶錄和個人的偵探故事,本書探索了信任的意義、我們為什麼信任,以及當信任被背叛時會發生什麼。 萊克曼斯特別關注砂岩大學神聖牆內的欺詐和腐敗,揭示了欺詐者對受害者的控制往往微妙而殘酷的本質,並展示了他們的行為對他人個人和職業的深刻影響。 掩蓋事實——有時被認為比犯罪更糟糕——具有潛在的影響。

本書是一個現代社會的寓言。以陰暗且樸實的語調娓娓道來。 (Zoe)
