Description:

BOOK TWO IN THE JOSEPH O’LOUGHLIN SERIES

Please join us in celebrating the long-awaited paperback release!

Detective Inspector Vincent Ruiz doesn’t know who wants him dead. He has no recollection of the firefight that landed him in the Thames, covered in his own blood and that of at least two other people. A photo of missing child Mickey Carlyle is found in his pocket—but Carlyle’s killer is already in jail. And Ruiz is the detective who put him there.

Accused of faking amnesia, Ruiz reaches out to psychologist Joe O’Loughlin to help him unearth his memory and clear his name. Together they battle against an internal affairs investigator convinced Ruiz is hiding the truth, and a ruthless criminal who claims Ruiz has something of his that can’t be replaced. As Ruiz’s memories begin to resurface, they offer tantalizing glimpses at a shocking discovery.

 

My View:

Brilliant! Compelling! Drop everything else and sit down and read!

 

I loved this book – the second in the Joseph O’Loughlin series. The plot is based on a scenario – that of a missing child, that will tug at all consciences’ and has a protagonist who doesn’t give up and investigates this crime with heart and little regard for his own safety – if ever needed this is the type of policeman I would like to think would be there for me…Vincent Ruiz has the exuberance of a terrier – he never gives up.

 

Once more Michael Robotham demonstrates his wonderful ability to portray well developed characters, write engaging and compelling story arcs and a realistic police procedural all in one seamless mesmerising book.  And it reads as if these narrative was written effortlessly – what a great skill. I can’t wait to read the next in this series.
