'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.

A mesmerising psychological thriller from one of the greatest crime writers of today, Michael Robotham, the internationally bestselling author of The Secrets She Keeps - now a major BBC TV series.

The Other Wife

This book was SLOWLY moving along. Then I got to page 730 on my iPad, and that is when I quit reading. WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE TO INSERT A NASTY COMMENT ABOUT PRES TRUMP IN A STORY? A character mentioned that Pres Trump never apologizes. What a horrible thing to say. I don’t think the author really knows if that is true. THE AUTHOR TOTALLY RUINED THE BOOK BY MAKING A TRUMP HATER COMMENT. TOTALLY UNCALLED FOR. WELL, I QUIT READING. I’M SORRY I SPENT THE MONEY. I LIKE TO READ TO GET AWAY FROM EVERYTHING, BUT THE AUTHOR RUINED IT.


The Other Wife

The book was very enjoyable and easy to read, I was actually wanting it to be longer. Lots of twists and turns with a mix of welcomed predictability and surprises. Really liked that it felt present day and thoroughly enjoyed the “Donald Trump” humor.
