Quotes & Awards

  • “[Barrett] narrates in smooth, deep tones that suit the smart but troubled psychologist, an enormously sympathetic character. Barrett lightens vocal tones, slightly raises pitch, and adjusts cadence to portray teenage girls and other female characters. Police personnel, including O’Loughlin’s longtime friend, a retired London detective, are readily distinguished through identifiable British accents. Barrett’s reading captures the relentless plot pace; he considerably ratchets up the tension in the terrifying denouement. An engrossing crime novel with enough red herrings to satisfy mystery fans.”

    Booklist (audio review)

  • “Taut…Robotham doesn’t shy away from the unsettling, but he never seeks merely to titillate.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Subtle, smart, compelling, and blessed with both an intelligent story line and top-notch writing, this book will grab readers from page one and not let go until the final sentence.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Robotham creates relentless suspense as law enforcement and O’Loughlin close in on a sinister soul with a deranged criminal mind.”

    Booklist

  • “Robotham has provided a first-rate psychological thriller containing a disturbing and menacing central story flanked by acute observations about people under stress and how they react. The well-drawn characters on either side of the crime make fine supports for a wounded hero in a wounded world.”

    Sydney Morning Herald

  • “Writing in the first person with subtlety and compassion, Robotham assimilates his multiple plot strands so skilfully the weight and texture of social interconnection becomes almost palpable as the various stories start to intertwine, and then violently collide.”

    Australian (Sydney)

  • One of the 2012 Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books: Thrillers
  • A Kirkus Reviews “New and Notable Title”, October 2012

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilaine | 2/19/2014

    " Glad I found this series by Robotham. The plots are well worked and the characters are ring true. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Foss | 2/9/2014

    " I really like his books. A real page-turner. Couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 2/7/2014

    " I've listened to all Robotham's books, and in Sean Barrett he has found the perfect narrator. His lovely, reassuring baritone is perfect for the introspective, cerebral O'Loughlin, who never seems to get rattled (except perhaps at the end with a gun in his shaking hands), and he adds just the right edge for series "partner" and ex-London police detective Vincent Ruiz. The NYT review pointed out that these are books about fathers and daughters, and the parallels here, as Joe works to find a kidnapped girl and to reconcile with his own daughter, are beautifully integrated. This audio is totally immersive--the kind you want to listen to in one big gulp. (I finished it in under 2 days, even with social engagements). A riveting story full of red herrings and suspenseful twists, absolutely compelling. And a crime story that's so much more than an investigation of the crime; it also probes the heart. "

    " Loved, loved, loved this book! It was gripping, suspenseful, filled with fully-fleshed out characters and had an ending I thought I saw coming, but was completely off-base. Robotham is a master! "

    " A fantastic effort from Robotham, this story of kidnapping and murder moves right along and never lets up until the hard-hitting ending. Even though I figured out the kidnapper's identity early on, it didn't affect my enjoyment of this intense tale. Very highly recommended. "
