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?

Micheal Robotham has again produced a great story with twists and turns culminating into a breath holding, nail biting conclusion. Sean Bennett narrates fabulously and for me i now feel the characters have become so real i will actually miss them.

I close my eyes and feel my heart begin racing. Someone is coming. They're going to find me. A mother and her teenage daughter are found brutally murdered in a remote farmhouse, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other left lying like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her Prince.

I love this author, his stories are gripping, the way he writes and his descriptions thought prevoking, his characters are realalistic and believable. The narrator manages to bring the characters not just into my imagination but bring me into their lives. I feel like I'm watching the story unfold in front of me as if I have a front row seat watching everything as it happens. I now regard Micheal Robotham one of my favourite authors and Sean Barrett a top narrator.

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.

When a paragraph in an evening newspaper reveals a decades-old tragedy, most readers barely give it a glance. But for three strangers, it's impossible to ignore. For one woman it's a reminder of the worst thing that ever happened to her. For another it's the dangerous possibility that her darkest secret is about to be discovered. And for a third, a journalist, it's the first clue in a hunt to uncover the truth. The Child's story will be told.

It grabs the imagination and let's one get lost in both the past and present. A well written book that allows a good few hours escapism.
