Publisher's Summary

The life she wanted wasn't hers....

The compelling new psychological thriller that will break your heart into tiny pieces, from world-renowned author Michael Robotham.

Everyone has an idea of what their perfect life is. For Agatha, it's Meghan Shaughnessy's. These two women from vastly different backgrounds have one thing in common - a dangerous secret that could destroy everything they hold dear. Both will risk everything to hide the truth, but their worlds are about to collide in a shocking act that cannot be undone.

The Secrets She Keeps is a compelling psychological thriller that delves deeply into the psyche of the human mind, by internationally best-selling author Michael Robotham.

What the Critics Say

Praise for Michael Robotham's writing:
"Will have you turning the pages compulsively." (The Times)
"Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them." (Linwood Barclay)
"Superbly exciting...a terrific read." (Guardian)
"Life or Death is a nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master." (Stephen King)

    "Disturbing and compulsive"

    This book goes to places most of us avoid at all costs, particularly if you do have children. I became increasingly engrossed.

    "Well written and engaging"

    Although a fair bit happened in the course of this story, it is more about building the characters. I found both main characters interesting despite a small tendency to stereotype.

    Not a world-beater in depth, but a decent read, especially the slow exposition of the back stories.

    "Not another fragmented narrative"

    What's happened to almost OK fiction? There's The Girl Before, The Good Girl, Try Not to Breathe and now I have to endure the same fragmented narrative in this forgettable narrative. We are forced to go from Agatha to Megan as if we can POSSIBLY relate to each of them in any sort of equal way. Michael R. Write a novel next time. Not some implausible pap.

    "Chick lit mummy style"

    I found the text patronising, unoriginal and cliche ridden , the characters stereotypical and saccharine. I tried to persevere despite intense irritation but have given up.

    "Not quite there.."

    Not quite there but managed to hold my attention to the end . Not the standard of some of Michaels previous novels.. hang in there and you will certainly be kept entertained .. limited characters and reasonably predictable but ok.. great narration which helps enormously .

    "What a great book!"

    Love each minuto of it, it kept me on edge, feeling sorry for Agatha and hating her at the same time. First book I got from M.R. And definitely not the last!

    "Suspenseful Family Drama"

    A suspenseful family drama about motherhood, paternity, families, infidelity, abuse, and mental illness. The secrets she keeps is the story of two women whose lives come into contact with devastating consequences. It was well plotted and well written with engaging characters, although the women seemed too complex and unstable, while the men too gullible and easily manipulared. It reminded me of other similar themed novels I've read recently. It's told from two points of view. Especially for lovers of psychological thrillers. The profiler was my favourite character. I loved the dramatic reading.

    "*HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT*"

    I love Michael Robotham. But, I've finished up feeling very flat. I'm not a fan of books where the characters are speaking for themselves.

    Aside from that, the storyline was very boring and I've fast forwarded through half of it. But listening to the end. It got better about four hours from the end.

    The narrator, Lucy Price-Lewis is okay for a woman narrator. Says things as they are and doesn't use the soft feely nicey tone of voice as most women do.

    Would I spend the money if I knew it was written like this - no.

    "Great book"

    Really enjoyed this. Yes it starts as a domestic drama but quickly starts to build into an excellent thriller told from 2 different perspectives. Different type of book for this author but very well written. Don't be put off by the negative reviews, it was a gripping story.

    I was looking forward to this book as I am a big fan of Michaels books but it lacked suspense and I found it long winded and boring. Not one of his best.

    "Very different story from Robotham!"

    Such an interesting story, told from two people's points of view, both women. Quite a change from the mournful Joseph O'Loughlin stories, which, frankly, are becoming full of self-pity and verging on the annoying.

    It's a very good stab at seeing the world from a female perspective and extremely well narrated. My only reservation is that the author seems to believe in the Superwoman myth, e.g., that a women who has had major stomach surgery (a C-section) can clamber over a wall a few days later!

    Never mind, I really enjoyed the psychological cat and mouse game and was gripped by the twists and turns of the plot. Recommended!

    Heart stopping at times. Very well read. Good, emotive book. You can feel where the story as going...so would say it is slightly predictable for a story line. But still made a good listen!
