Description

A naked woman is perched on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers, 'you don't understand,' and jumps.

Later, Joe has a visitor - the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge - not only would she not commit suicide, she is terrified of heights. Joe wants to believe her, but what would drive a woman to such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil?

Not As Good As The Other Books

I love Michael Rowbotham's books but for me this was not his best. I kept wondering why Joe was being so dense and not considering he would have been a target of the killer, not taking any precautions with his wife or children - it was quite frustrating. There also too much pycho babble and too much unnecessary detail making the listen a bit tedious. I think I prefer the books where Ruiz has a bigger presence.


Sean Barrett was outstanding with the delivery of the story

Same same but different

I was looking forward to this. I enjoyed his previous books but unfortunately this one, although often enjoyable was frustrating. The main character often does things that are slightly incredulous and it is a little frustratingly predictable. I would write more but don't want to ruin the story for others.

A very Disturbing character indeed

What made the experience of listening to Shatter the most enjoyable?

Getting a view of English People living in small communities and their daily lives.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dr. Joe, I have really enjoyed learning about his character, his strengths and weaknesses and his compassion for people in general and his family.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the Police finally trapped the psychopath

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Charlie showed how strong she was, even as an innocent victim.

Any additional comments?

I found that I was disturbed on so many levels by the actions and personality of the villain.
I have know people with some of his traits and his ability to inflict mental cruelty upon others and now look at those people with new insightful eyes. Holy crap!

quite predictable ...

If you read a lot of crime stories and thrillers, you will find this annoyingly predictable. At certain key points, you want to climb into the story and just start hitting characters over the head for being obtuse. The conclusion has one nice twist but then fizzles out. The psychopathic villain has no real objective - to mangle an old saying, he kills his nose to spite his face. From a moralist perspective, it's really hard to understand how the 'reason' for the killings can just stand by until the last possible minute.

Despite its many problems, it's not the worst such novel I've ever read. The antihero protagonist is quite believable if not especially likeable.

Give it a try if you must. The narrator reads it quite well!
