The ninth thriller in the Joe O'Loughlin series, the inspiration for the major ITV series The Suspect starring Aidan Turner.
'Superbly constructed . . . a breathtaking twist' Daily Mail
Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong.
This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?
Against the advice of the police, Joe launches his own investigation. As he learns more, he discovers sides to his father he never knew - and is forcibly reminded that the truth comes at a price.
Although the Joe O'Loughlin books can be read in any order, The Other Wife is the ninth in the series after Close Your Eyes.
And don't miss Michael Robotham's new #1 bestselling Cyrus Haven & Evie Cormac series, beginning with Good Girl, Bad Girl.

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.
The Other Wife
An excellent end to a brilliant series, I've followed from the beginning and enjoyed sharing his life with him.
He will be missed.
