THE BEST CRIME /THRILLER READ OF 2013
Little, Brown Book Group
Joe O’Loughlin is back with a pulse-stopping new case.
Marnie Logan often feels like she’s being watched. Nothing she can quite put her finger on — a whisper of breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye — and now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel has been missing for more than a year. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O’Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie’s reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for Marnie’s birthday. It was supposed to be a celebration of her life. But it’s not the story anyone was expecting …
Undoubtedly the best crime/thriller read of 2013!
I have rediscovered my passion for reading thanks to this book. Why haven’t I read any of your works before now Michael Robotham? How remiss of me I will certainly seek out your back titles.
This novel is a fantastic psychological thriller, it holds your attention in a vice like grip and doesn’t let go! You will be mesmerised by the words on the page, they seem effortless, the story flows and spills like a waterfall, showering you with intrigue and consternation, setting your heart racing. The plot twists and turns and launches your mind in many directions, there is no way you can anticipate the outcome. There is no way you can guess the secrets.
It is because of great writers like Michael Robotham that I read crime fiction.
I am drunk on the sheer pleasure of reading this book!
I am now going to add this to my list of books TBR on Goodreads 🙂
It was fantastic – and even my husband read it and agreed.
Glad to hear you found your passion again!
I have had 3 or 4 really good reads in the past couple of weeks – they have reignited my reading passion. It is a good feeling. 🙂
Isn’t Robotham great?! I really like his O’Loughlin character. It’s not easy to consistently wrote good stories, but he does.
I am looking forward to reading his previous books in the series. I don’t think they will disappoint. I don’t know why I haven’t read any of his works before now…but never too late to start. 🙂
I love Michael Robotham – never been disappointed! Just started reading this and am looking forward to every page of it.
I really did enjoy this – I hope you do too.
