Publisher's Summary

Soon to be an ITV drama starring Aidan Turner.

Joseph O'Loughlin appears to have the perfect life—a beautiful wife, a loving daughter and a successful career as a clinical psychologist. But nothing can be taken for granted. Even the most flawless existence is only a loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient and the biggest lie of his life. Caught in a complex web of deceit and haunted by images of the slain girl, he embarks upon a search that will take him from London to Liverpool and into the darkest recesses of the human mind....

Critic Reviews

"Believable and authentic from the first sentence.... Robotham doesn't put a foot wrong in his plotting, pace or inventiveness." (The Australian)

"A truly classy thriller, beautifully crafted." (Australian Woman's Weekly)

Brilliantly written, expertly narrated

Reloading the next Robotham as we speak! Crime thriller. Not sure why they have decided to re-record the book with a different narrator but I went with this one as an avid fan of Glenister after the Strike series

great escape

Loved the story and the journey it took you on. The narrator was pleasant to listen to and he gave flavour to the characters. I'm glad to see there are more to stories to listen to.

The Suspect - 1st Rate Story

Another great listen by Michael Robotham. Robert Glenister was a very good narrator.
The story had you taken in by Robbie’s character. You certainly didn’t see a half brother coming out of left field.
Enjoyed this book and would listen again on the future.

It’s got everything…

….wrong with it! I made myself carry on listening to it to be shot of it. The “hero” is devoid of common sense and the whole book is full of clichés of the worst sort. None of the timeline works, and why didn’t the editor pick this up before the book went to print? If you like a well constructed plot, save yourself the trouble of listening to this book

I love this series

But had somehow never listened to this one. Nice narrating by Robert. Sad I’ve now listened to all his books, they are so good I want more!

Nine more words required how bloody silly that is.

Fantastic

Very clever story kept you guessing all the way through it. At times you would get frustrated with the situation and want to say stop running but over all I enjoyed this book. Would highly recommend it and look forward to listening to more books of Michael Robotham and Robert the Narrator did a fantastic job and brought you right into the book.

Excellent narration which brought the story alive

My favourite narrator and a story that held my attention. So much better than the tv adaptation which I stopped watching because it didn’t engage me. I was in two minds about getting this book because of that but am glad I did.

Great novel

The television series prompted me to read this novel after the first episode. I much preferred the novel. There are subtle differences in the characters in the novel which make the plot more believable I
Excellent narration

Excellent.

I got really engrossed in this book; having read one other book by this author I hoped this would be as good and wasn't disappointed! It's interesting from the psychological aspect and great characters brought to life by narrator Robert Glennister who has narrated books I've listened to before.
I definitely recommend it.
