Joseph O'Loughlin appears to have the perfect life - a beautiful wife, a loving daughter and a successful career as a clinical psychologist. But nothing can be taken for granted. Even the most flawless existence is only a loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient and the biggest lie of his life.

Caught in a complex web of deceit and haunted by images of the slain girl, he embarks upon a search that will take him from London to Liverpool and into the darkest recesses of the human mind. Ultimately, he will risk everything to unmask the killer and save his family.

THE SUSPECT is a psychological thriller, a novel of ideas and a story of love. Michael Robotham has a remarkable grasp of the subtle turns of the human mind and his clear-cut, cunning prose is a joy to read.

Ahh, that wonderful feeling of reading faster and faster towards the end of a book, wanting to find out what happens. Ahh, that wonderful feeling of finishing a good book and knowing it’s the first in a series. A very compelling plot, although I, normally never one to solve the mystery, had suspicions about the bad guys before the outcome was revealed. Now, which one is next?

This is the 2nd book I have tried of Michael Robotham. This one featured a psychologist, who also has just found out he has Parkinson's disease. Naturally he is married & doesn't know how to communicate with his loved ones. This makes him another flawed hero. Naturally one of his clients frames him for murder because he hates him & wants revenge. He is the only one who see's this set up & sets forth to prove his innocence.

Very good series featuring clinical psychologist Joe O'Laughlin. He is very bright and likable, and recently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Opl does not have all the books in the series but you can order "LOST" through the interlibrary loan department.
