Liar, liar . . .


Joe O'Loughlin appears to have the perfect life - a beautiful wife, a loving daughter and a successful career as a clinical psychologist. But nothing can be taken for granted. Even the most flawless existence is only a loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient and the biggest lie of his life.

Caught in a complex web of deceit and haunted by images of the slain girl, he embarks upon a search that will take him from London to Liverpool and into the darkest recesses of the human mind. Ultimately, he will risk everything to unmask the killer and save his family.

The Suspect is the nerve-shredding psychological thriller that marked the debut of one of fiction's most compelling heroes, Joe O'Loughlin.

The Suspect

A psychological thriller with a psychologist as the main character- Joseph(Joe) O’Loughlin. He examines the good, the bad, and the ugly of psychological counselling and practice against the effects of chronic illness on himself, personally and professionally, and on his relationships. The major premise of the perpetrator developed through the books is questioned/modified by an unexpected revelation in the last pages. A most enjoyable and enthralling read. A book to read again and again to find aspects you missed the first time around. RECOMMENDED.

Disappointing

The sexist undertones were compounded by the ‘hell hath no fury ……..’ quote. Quite ironic when it’s men who assault and kill, as evidenced in this book. Joe is a bloviating bore with an obsession with breasts (as are myriad male authors). Long passages of boring text which I skipped. The ending was a cliched ‘they all lived happily ever after’.
