Library Journal Review

When 14-year-old Sienna appears at the O'Loughlin home covered in blood, it's only a short time before her father's stabbed body is discovered on her bedroom floor. The girl is completely traumatized, but as she is his daughter's best friend, Joe O'Loughlin tries to save her from murder charges. A clinical psychologist who has worked with the police, Joe understands that many people are not what they seem. He also must confront his own imminent divorce and his ongoing Parkinson's disease. With the help of Vincent Ruiz, a retired cop, he relentlessly pursues a manipulative teacher, an anti-immigrant neo-Nazi politician, and his own innocence in the face of assault charges. Verdict Robotham's decade as an investigative journalist and another as a ghost writer for celebrities serve him well, as he embeds a keen sense of detail into a twisty and fast-moving plot. Both Joe, who knows rather too much about human behavior, and Vincent have appeared in most of Robotham's six previous works (Shatter; Suspect), and their fans surely will look forward to another psychological thriller.
