What the Critics Say

Praise for Michael Robotham's writing:
"Will have you turning the pages compulsively." (The Times)
"Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them." (Linwood Barclay)
"Superbly exciting...a terrific read." (Guardian)
"Life or Death is a nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master." (Stephen King)

    "Great book"

    Really enjoyed this. Yes it starts as a domestic drama but quickly starts to build into an excellent thriller told from 2 different perspectives. Different type of book for this author but very well written. Don't be put off by the negative reviews, it was a gripping story.

    "Gripping psychological thriller"

    This book is one of Michael Robotham's best, full of suspense and hard to put down. It is well written with excellent characterisations and superbly read by Lucy Price-Lewis. I loved it!

    "Disappointed"

    I was looking forward to this book as I am a big fan of Michaels books but it lacked suspense and I found it long winded and boring. Not one of his best.

    "Enjoyable but...."

    This is such a change of genre for this author that I actually found myself wondering if he really wrote it!
    It is a good story and beautifully written characters whom I could not help but feel empathy towards.
    However there are some inaccuracies to do with pregnancy and birth which I feel there is really no excuse for these days...not exactly difficult to research!
    On the whole I enjoyed this but really hope that the author brings us more Joe O'Loughlin instead! Stick to what you're brilliant at 😉

    "Very different story from Robotham!"

    Such an interesting story, told from two people's points of view, both women. Quite a change from the mournful Joseph O'Loughlin stories, which, frankly, are becoming full of self-pity and verging on the annoying.

    It's a very good stab at seeing the world from a female perspective and extremely well narrated. My only reservation is that the author seems to believe in the Superwoman myth, e.g., that a women who has had major stomach surgery (a C-section) can clamber over a wall a few days later!

    Never mind, I really enjoyed the psychological cat and mouse game and was gripped by the twists and turns of the plot. Recommended!

    "Suspenseful Family Drama"

    A suspenseful family drama about motherhood, paternity, families, infidelity, abuse, and mental illness. The secrets she keeps is the story of two women whose lives come into contact with devastating consequences. It was well plotted and well written with engaging characters, although the women seemed too complex and unstable, while the men too gullible and easily manipulared. It reminded me of other similar themed novels I've read recently. It's told from two points of view. Especially for lovers of psychological thrillers. The profiler was my favourite character. I loved the dramatic reading.

    "*HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT*"

    I love Michael Robotham. But, I've finished up feeling very flat. I'm not a fan of books where the characters are speaking for themselves.

    Aside from that, the storyline was very boring and I've fast forwarded through half of it. But listening to the end. It got better about four hours from the end.

    The narrator, Lucy Price-Lewis is okay for a woman narrator. Says things as they are and doesn't use the soft feely nicey tone of voice as most women do.

    Would I spend the money if I knew it was written like this - no.
