Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Michael Robotham is known for his fast-clip, suspenseful thrillers—and The Other Wife—the ninth and final book in the Joe O’Loughlin series—is no exception. Though we’re accustomed to our psychologist hero investigating the lives and crimes of others, here, he takes a look at himself. After his father slips into a coma, Joe reflects back on his home life and unearths secrets about his family’s past. We’re sad to farewell Joe and his detective partner, Vincent Ruiz—but The Other Wife is an utterly gripping end to the long-running series.
Quite a journey
This story has the reader continually guessing ‘who done it’. When the truth is revealed it is a little surprising, but when everything is explained, it makes sense.
Sometimes I think the main character, Joe, is put through too many ordeals. He never seems to get a break.
Good story though.
The Other Wife
Another compelling read from a masterful storyteller! You can’t help but become intrigued by the characters and their flaws as they weave through the complexities of the plot. Such a great read!
The other wife
Great book could not put it down.
