A very suspenseful read. Don't pick this one up to read before bed - it will keep you up all night. Joe O'Louglin is brought in to profile the murder of a married couple but ends up being side-tracked by a young drowning victim found nearby. Why didn't she have shoes on in the middle of a blizzard? Where did she come from? Pieces start coming together and obviously the two cases are connected. This novel does contain sexual violence - don't read if that's a trigger. Gut-wrenching and frightening - Robotham's eye for the darker side of human nature sometimes makes me sad.

omg, what an emotional roller coaster! Another enjoyable book by Michael Robotham -- one of those books where you read faster and faster, eating crackers out of the box for lunch, neglecting preparations for the dinner party you're hosting in a couple of hours.... One quibble, though, Mr. Robotham. Speaking of Victoria Naparstek, you say: "Maybe she grew tired of being objectified, which would make her unusual among woman." Say what? You think women generally like to be "Degrade(d) to the status of a mere object"? (Lexico, powered by Oxford)?

Not a typical Robotham novel in many ways: his use of a two narrative threads (diary and investigation); atypical downplaying of the dark and sinister (not completely, of course); and the minimal role of Ruiz, who is always a wonderful presence in these novels. Minor points, however, when discussing a writer whose body of work is undeniably head-and-shoulders above the norm as a writer of exceptional literary thrillers.

It's only recently that I became aware of this author. Each of his novels are totally spell-binding. This book, in particular was amazing! Never a lull in the plot. Initially, I wasn't sure if I would like the back and forth; however, I quickly fell into the intrigues and twists of the story, reading until late into the night. I always thought Baldacci and Coben were IT. They now have Robotham up there (in my book).

Great book, good story, wonderful writing, and I believe this was my second of his books. Well worth the read--I cannot imagine Robotham writing something sub par; Enjoy, those of you who have yet to discover him!

I didn't like this book at all and found it quite disturbing in parts. I have liked the other books in the series but not this one.

This is a good book. Bit of a surprise ending, at least for me. I recommend to those who like suspense.

Although in the book there are a large number of cliches, belonging to this genre of literature, is offset by the intelligent and interesting narrative, the proper amount of crime scenes, psychoanalysis, very insightful comments and is really thrilling.
The psychologist in this book suffers from Parkinson. I am tired that too often writers are using main characters: detective, policemen, psychiatrist etc., who eventually at the end of the book will find a guilty, inevitably he/she suffers from Parkinson, or other incurable disease.

I grabbed this book on my way out of the library from a display of books recommended by library staff. What caught my eye was a one-line review on the cover by David Baldacci and I had just listened to an audiobook by him and loved it. Have to say that my expectations were high because of this and was a bit disappointed. The book had a very good story line, but I was disturbed by the sexual violence towards the two teenage girls in the story, who had been kidnapped. I have to say the end of the book was very good and surprising to learn who the kidnapper / killer really was. Just an OK read for me--5 out of 10.

“Beware of data. On July 24, 2000, the Concord was the safest aircraft in the world. A day latter, according to the statistics, it was the least safe airline in the world.”
