Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin Book 6) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Two young girls. Both taken. Dead? Or alive?
When best friends Piper and Tash disappear one Sunday morning, the investigation captivates a nation but the teenage girls are never found. Three years later, during the worst blizzard in a century, a husband and wife are brutally killed in the farmhouse where Tash McBain once lived. A suspect is in custody, a troubled young man who can hear voices and claims that he saw a girl that night being chased by a snowman.
Convinced that Piper or Tash might still be alive, clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin persuades police to reopen the investigation, but the closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous it becomes...
SAY YOU'RE SORRY is a nerve-shredding psychological thriller from one of the most brilliant crime authors of today, Michael Robotham.
**INCLUDES BONUS extracts from Watching You (Joe O'Loughlin 7) and the first book of Michael Robotham's bestselling new Cyrus Haven series.**

This time Joe, a psychologist who is semi retired due to his Parkinson’s Disease, helps out with a case of two missing teenage girls. As usual, he becomes far too involved in the case until his investigation threatens his already precarious relationship with his family.
Apart from Joe’s point of view, we also get the first person point of view of Piper, one of the girls. This does mean we get quite a lot of detail of the girls’ kidnapping and imprisonment. Maybe too many depressing details for my faint heart.
For a bit of comic relief from the relentless disturbing nature of the crimes committed in the book, my beloved Ruiz, Joe’s ex-police detective mate, makes a very welcome appearance again. He always gets the best lines.
I have three more Joe books to read and I’m delaying them until next year. To quote Bill Adama, I don’t want it to end. Joe is one of those characters that you just can’t help but adore in just about every way. I like Robotham’s leads of his new books (Cyrus and Phil) but in the grand scheme of things they don’t hold a candle to Joe.
Unlike some other books of series, this one can be read as a standalone, so if you do pick this up somewhere cheap (not in Australia, Robotham’s books are snapped up quick smart in second hand book shops) don’t feel like you must go back and read in order. However, I recommend you do as this series is ridiculously good.
I’m obviously a Robotham fangirl 5 out of 5
Look forward to the next Joe O’Loughlin and Vincent Ruiz thriller:
Michael Rowbotham certainly one of my favourite authors

Tash and Piper, teenage friends, disappeared three years ago, and hope for their safe recovery has faded. Until, that is, a fire in a farmhouse and the serendipitous presence of the psychologist Joe O'Loughlin, cause it to be reopened (O'Louglin is a character known to fans of Rowbotham, and very likeable). The storyline is divided between first person narrative (O'Loughlin) and Tash's diary, and this works well. I did find the first two thirds of the novel a little slow, but the last part more than makes up for them as the story builds to its gripping climax. The novel is as much whodunnit as thriller, and when the final denouement came, I felt a little cheated. Some may have guessed the ending; I certainly wouldn't have (and so, no "oh, of course!" moment for me!). Also, one piece of extreme cruelty did strike me as unncessary - and would it really have happened? (no details to avoid spoilers. Anyone who has read the novel will know what I'm referring to).
But in conclusion, a good, enjoyable - in some parts, thrilling - read, although I'm still waiting for another Shatter!.
The story is classic Robotham,drawing you in until the very last line on the very last page,I did pick up on the clue given halfway in the book and guessed the identity of the killer,but I was never really sure until the end,and to be honest the identity of the bad guy is secondary to the way the story unfolds,Robotham doesn't really write whodunnits,Its the complex plots and character driven stories that make him one of the best crime writers alive today.
But I sincerely hope they dont charge such a high cover price again,or I might have to wait for the paperback!
Michael Robotham's "Say You're Sorry" saved the day, and from the moment she started reading it was totally captivated by it, and only drowsiness at night made her put the book down, or more accurately when it fell out of her hand onto the floor!. She didn't want the book to end, and was now gone on and ordered 4 other Robotham books to ensure good reading continuity. What do we do when the supply of his books runs out?
