Description

Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for 60 years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong.

This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer? 

Against the advice of the police, Joe launches his own investigation. As he learns more, he discovers sides to his father he never knew - and is forcibly reminded that the truth comes at a price.

A mesmerising psychological thriller from one of the greatest crime writers of today, Michael Robotham, the international best-selling author of The Secrets She Keeps.

Fantastic Installment To The Series

I really enjoyed this book. Great story, well written. Beautiful observations of the nature of humanity.
I loved the way the story is interwoven with deep insights on humanity, grief, relationships, power, greed, jealousy and fear. Superb.
Great respect for the narrator , sensitive, intelligent and a skilled actor.
Well done the whole production team. Highly recommended, much more than a crime story.

not good enough

I've listened to many Robotham's books, but this one was too dry, uninteresting, with the usual red herrings. the end was of course unpredictable but I also didn't care at that point (I skipped a few charters toward the end). those were the obligatory twists.
I didn't find the story nor the characters interesting, and as a frequent reader of the author's book, I found it annoying that the professor, at the beginning of the book, acted like a child despite his previous experiences and cases. also, his disease seems to be conveniently managed in this case while in other books it seemed much worse.
It was too much of a cookie cutter book. I wouldn't recommend it.

Narration doesn’t quite fit

Good story but not engrossing. I had trouble with the narrator - he sounds too old and stuffy for the character.

Spoiler alert warning

Author turns this book into political commentary at one point. . Scorning a political figures in the middle of a mystery destroys the entire mood. If I wanted political Opinions I turn on the tv. Be forewarned!

Need good hearing for this one.

The reader of this novel has a beautiful voice and a beautiful British accent. But the voice is so low in volume, that I sometimes couldn’t hear it well enough even with the volume turned way up. Also, there is so little variAtion in tone that I sometimes couldn’t concentrate on it. The story is just not that special and by the time the culprit is revealed, I was beyond caring.

Another Great One!!!

Once again, Michael Robothum and Sean Barrett knocked it out of the park with both their writing and performance of this book! I’m so glad that Mr. Robothum always chooses S.B. to do the narration. I really feel like I know the characters, especially Joe and Vince, through Mr. Barrett’s voice inflections and tone. The characters are complex, and the storyline keeps moving at a steady pace. As with all his books, you’ll laugh and tear up at times, and not expect the outcome. Since I don’t want to give away anything, all I will say is definitely listen to The Other Wife!!!

Great but for one thing.....

I had difficulty hearing parts of it.
Nice twisty plot with an ending that was believable.

Good not great

This is one of Robotham's best books if not his best (I have returned about 4 of his books). He didn't rely on shock which he has in previous books. It was not exactly a complex mystery (pretty obvious half way in), but it remains entertaining . It kept me interested till the end but it was not "The Wife Before Me" or "Girl Gone". Kate Morton actually writes better mysteries out of Australia. But if you want a book that is good while driving (half pay attention), this works. I was offended over the disrespect for the US President. Excluding the negative comment involving his psychological state, as a foreigner, it is insulting he refers to the American President as Donald Trump. I would not call the English Queen or the President of France without their titles.

An enjoyable read

This was my first book by this author and didn't know this was the ninth in the series. It was fine as a stand alone but I think I would have been more connected to the characters if I had read a few of the previous ones. I liked this book a lot and the narrator was very good. I think I was expecting there to be more between the two wife's and their relationships from the title and the synopsis.
