She's standing at the front door. Covered in blood. Is she the victim of a crime? Or the perpetrator? A teenage girl -- Sienna, a troubled friend of his daughter -- comes to Joe O'Loughlin's door one night. She is terrorized, incoherent, and covered in blood. The police find Sienna's father, a celebrated former cop, murdered in the home he shared with Sienna. Tests confirm that it's his blood on Sienna. She says she remembers nothing. Joe O'Loughlin is a psychologist with troubles of his own. His marriage is coming to an end and his daughter will barely speak to him. He tries to help Sienna, hoping that if he succeeds it will win back his daughter's affection. But Sienna is unreachable, unable to mourn her father's death or to explain it. Investigators take aim at Sienna. O'Loughlin senses something different is happening, something subterranean and terrifying to Sienna. It may be something in her mind. Or it may be something real. Someone real. Someone capable of the most grim and gruesome murder, and willing to kill again if anyone gets too close. His newest thriller is further evidence that Michael Robotham is, as David Baldacci has said, "the real deal -- we only hope he will write faster."

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The most suspenseful book I read all year. Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
"Pleasantly creepy....Plotted with precision and narrated with real intelligence."—The New York Times Book Review
One of the best novels to come out of the chaos of Iraq; a penetrating peek through the fog of war. Nelson DeMille
"Terrific...a classic 'wrong man' thriller that puts its hero in hot water, then raises the Fahrenheit to a fever pitch....Robotham not only builds the suspense masterfully but tops it off with a stunning twist."—People
"Proves Robotham's a writer of the highest class who can create terror from the commonplace and crush the breath out of you."—The Daily Mail (UK)
"A disquieting, often moving, dissection of the layers of hipocrisy that protect the wicked."—The Times (UK)
“Robotham writes with grave tenderness about unhappy people caught in terrible situations—including his sleuth, who has Parkinson’s disease and is in perpetual mourning for his broken marriage.” New York Times Book Review
“[A] taut thriller…O’Loughlin, who suffers from Parkinson’s, continues to be an appealingly flawed hero.” Publishers Weekly
“The violence and crimes make for grim, if compelling, listening, and Barrett masters the can’t-look, can’t-look-away intensity…Barrett makes the taut emotions surrounding the girl raw and agonizing, with both the teenagers’ views, as well as the adults’ perspectives. As mistakes and false judgments unfold, he skillfully plays the psychology of family turmoil. Characters from the youngest daughter to the seasoned police detectives emerge with clarity and personality.” AudioFile
“Remarkable…offers everything those ‘literary’ detective novels ought to but usually don’t…Beautiful but understated…This is crime fiction of the highest order.” Booklist (starred review)
“Barrett’s stunning reading…grabs listeners and never lets go…Barrett excels in conveying danger and tensions and the the often desperate characters…Compelling.” Booklist (starred audio review)
