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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

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. …

Michael Robotham and his Joe O'Loughlin character are now part of my" favourite mystery series" list. I like all the books featuring Joe, a brainy clinical psychologist suffering from Parkinson's disease and I like his side kick Vincent…

I skipped the previous two books because the subject seemed a little off-putting. Now I may go back and read them. This was a great mystery--the plotting, character development, forensic details were A-one. Howerever, the end was not…

What an amazing book. It's a story of two teenagers who get abducted and are held captive. I thought it was well written and I found it hard to put down. It was a hard but wonderful read

First book by Robotham I've read. I thought it was good, smart and well written. My reservations concerned the way the author used the girl's diary to generate suspense... I won't enter a spoiler here but I thought this crossed some kind…

I literally could not put this book down and finished it in one read. The story was realistic and engrossing. I have already requested the first two of his books on hold, and will read every one he has written. The only problem will be,…

Another gripping read by Robotham. The storyline is engaging with enough twists along the way to keep you guessing. Dr Joe continues to be a great companion through the novel with his intelligent observations and disarming honesty.
