Publisher Description

The ninth book in the Joe O'loughlin series, from bestselling author Michael Robotham.

'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.

'Robotham doesn't just make me scared for his characters, he makes my heart ache for them' Linwood Barclay

'Superbly exciting ... a terrific read' Guardian

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

Much better than I thought it would be...very well written.

A contrived novel with ridiculous story lines and characters. I pushed my way through this book hoping it would get better, get smarter. it doesn’t. Don’t waste your time or money. This book is not even decent “beach” reading.
