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, unfortunately, read this book out of order. I read book 8 before this. Now I need to hear book 8 again. But that’s okay because I am completely addicted to these books. Each one is absolutely perfect. Michael Robotham’s writing is unputdownable. It’s 02:18 and I’ve just finished! I have to be up in a few hours so night and start reading his books. I promise you will become addicted as I have.

Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched. Nothing she can quite put her finger on - a whisper of breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye - and now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel has been missing for more than a year. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for her birthday.

I started this book because, although I had loads of audible books, this one seemed the least complicated and just an easy read - okay listen to. I was wrong. It wasn’t an easy listen to it was an amazing listen to. Full of different characters and just pure joy.

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.

I think the main problem with this book is that it was so far from my usual genre of book that it seemed a bit cheesy. I never read slushy books and don’t know why I bought it. But I decided I needed something light to listen to and this was it. Although I’ve never read a Mills & Boone book I would imagine this would fit right in.

I hope you have read the first book in this series. It’s as good as this was, and that’s good! I mean really GOOD!!!

Also, I don’t need to give you a synopsis of this book because the blurb you can read before you purchase it, tells you all you need to know. All i want to tell you is it’s 5:30 a.m. and I’ve just finished it.

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 one loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient - and the biggest lie of his life.

.... thought you knew it all. You so don’t! A rip roaring tale that’s for sure!!! A real page turner!

I’m not a great reviewer because I couldn’t tell you what this book is about without giving something vital away. Just read the flyleaf to get the gist.

The only thing I can tell you is if you are a fan of mystery books read this and you won’t be disappointed.

The woman looks exactly like his wife. She knows all about their marriage, their history, even private conversations the two of them had. There's just one problem: Raker's wife has been dead for eight years....

What a book. I’m not saying more. You will just have to read the third book, in what I hope will be a series of at least four because I for one need to read (or listen to) more about Louisa Clark.
