Michael Robotham Sphere

THE lat­est of­fer­ing from crime author ex­traor­di­naire Michael Robotham is creepy.

You don’t need to have read the ones be­fore it to pick up the char­ac­ters or their traits; you’re skil­fully in­tro­duced/ re­minded of them and their pre­vi­ous roles. But that’s not the creepy part. The creepy part is the story. The story fo­cuses on a mur­der in an old farm­house that doesn’t sit right and even­tu­ally points to an old miss­ing per­sons case.

One in­volves the dis­ap­pear­ance of two girls who were kid­napped and held for three years by some­one in the close- knit com­mu­nity – but no one knows by whom and no one knows where.

You’re see­ing the crime from the per­spec­tive of one of the girls, Piper, as well as clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist Joe O’Lough­lin, hop­ing against hope the two will ac­tu­ally meet. Say You’re Sorry is well crafted. You’ll be drawn in quickly, the words will flow into your mind with the story half- formed due to some hor­ren­dous events we’ve seen in the news.

And if you’re like me, you’ll be on the edge of your seat, with fin­gers and toes crossed, long be­fore you reach the last few pages.
