I haven't read a Joseph O'Loughlin for a while, and this was rivetting reminder of just how good this series is. Grippping and suspenseful, great characters and enough background to make it a stand alone read as well.
This is a must read for anyone who has followed Michael Robotham’s Joe O’Loughlin series.

I had not come across this author before so therefore knew nothing about Joe but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this book at all but did encourage me to buy more from this series
A cleverly written book with lots of twists and turns that will leave the reader guessing up to the end. As well as ...more
