The Northern Star - - WEEKEND - CARINA BRUCE Grip­ping, as usual VER­DICT:

One man. Two wives. A buck­et­load of se­crets. When Joe O’Lough­lin re­ceives a call to say his fa­ther, a noted sur­geon, has been bashed and left for dead, it’s a shock. But he can’t imag­ine the sur­prises set to un­fold when he ar­rives at the hospi­tal and dis­cov­ers a mys­tery woman claim­ing to be his fa­ther’s wife. Where does that leave O’Lough­lin’s mother, his fa­ther’s de­voted wife of 60 years? Jolts come thick and fast as mas­ter Aus­tralian thriller writer Robotham brings back pop­u­lar psy­chol­o­gist O’Lough­lin for a wel­come ninth run. O’Lough­lin must re­assess his no­tion of trusted fam­ily and friends as he pur­sues the truth about events that left his fa­ther in a coma. And as po­lice get bogged down in their probe, he makes it his mis­sion to track down the wannabe killer. There’s no putting down this thriller as Robotham ex­pertly leads read­ers into a tan­gled web of lies and wives.
