Publisher's Summary

Two couples. A doctor's surgery. A deadly obsession. Who's telling the truth?

'Who else would you go for, if you could? Give me a name, someone you quite like.'
He shrugs his shoulders. A jawline held tight.
'I quite like Jenni. What about you?'
I don't reply.

Carly and Rob, Jenni and Craig. Two couples, four friends. Betraying each other. Wanting each other.

All of them have access to prescription drugs through the medical practice where they work, and all of them are fighting their own demons.

But can any of them be trusted? And when the lies begin, can they ever be silenced?

What the Critics Say

"I absolutely loved it and raced through it. Thrilling, unputdownable, a fabulous rollercoaster of a read - I was obsessed by this book." (B. A. Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown)
"Obsession is a welcome addition to the domestic noir bookshelf. Robson explores marriage, jealousy and lust with brutal clarity, making for a taut thriller full of page-turning suspense." (Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths)
"Amanda Robson has some devastating turns of phrase up her sleeve and she expertly injects menace into the domestic. It was clear from the very first chapter that this was going to a dark and disturbing journey." (Holly Seddon, author of Try Not to Breathe)

    "Don't waste your time"

    Positive - great narrators
    Negative- long winded storyline that even as you get to the ending you're still left with questions.
    Rubbish, confusing and don't waste your money

    "Weak plot, awful characters and terribly written!"

    I cannot understand how this has gotten so many good reviews. A mental breakdown thrown in with a bit of porn, religion and murder. A psychological thriller it is not. Save yourself a book credit and buy something else!

    "Implausible"

    Very easy to listen to and the story races along, performances are generally good but the plot becomes ridiculous.

    "Very poor"

    Awful ending, so many questions left unanswered and at the end it was like the writer just ran out of storylines so the book ended.

    "Good story worth a listen"

    Was a good listen.
    Good portrayal of mental health issues.
    Was somewhat far fetched in parts a bit too er unbelievable I think is the word.
    Generally not too bad.

    "Excellent"

    Perhaps a touch long in the middle section but a great story, extremely well narrated. Kept me guessing all the way through and we'll defined relatable characters. Highly recommended and addictive.

    Wow! This one takes you for a ride. Once you are onboard, you ride it out until the very end. In the end, you're left wondering if the ride was worth taking ...

    "Just one more white lie...."

    I really enjoyed this book!! It was awesome, very different from a lot of thrillers I've read but very good none the less. Only thing was I'd wanted to know more about what had really happened, not quite enough detail into who what when where how that last tragic event truly unfolded!! You are kinda left to yourself to maybe figure that out ...anxious to read more from this author.

    "The Wonderful exceptional story World of Marriage"

    Oh wow... is about all I can say, while blinking my eyes like what ...? This story is a lot to take in. I very much enjoyed listening to the novel to it's entirety. I did not quite like the ending.. but the writer definitely took thr time & effort and you could see that it was a well thought-out book & was absolutely very well narrated . I would give this all five stars... I don't want to ruin anything for anyone... I just did not like the ending.
    I would have liked for it to come together just a quite bit more with that being said definitely buy this book worth every cent or credit spent.

    "Lousy ending"

    I thought it was an ok book. Interesting after the first few chapters. I'm not a writer but I could have written a better ending. Make Carly admit quilt to audience after being found not guilty by the court. It was like the author got tied and decided less just put this book to bed.
