Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

London psychiatrist Joseph O'Loughlin seems to have the perfect life. He has a beautiful wife, an adoring daughter, and a thriving practice to which he brings great skill and compassion. But he's also facing a future dimmed by Parkinson's disease. And when he's called in on a gruesome murder investigation, he discovers that the victim is someone he once knew. Unable to tell the police what he knows, O'Loughlin tells one small lie which turns out to be the biggest mistake of his life. Suddenly, he's caught in a web of his own making.

Review:

"Robotham shows real promise, putting a fresh spin on the familiar crime fiction trope of the falsely accused man." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] pleasantly creepy story, which is plotted with precision and narrated with real intelligence." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Robotham's novel is taut and fast-moving, but he finds time for an occasional pithy quote or droll digression.....Trust a crafty Brit to slip a Utopian vision into his thriller." Washington Post

Review:

"Tense and thrilling...Robotham...writes with the poise and polish of a veteran....Sure to establish its author as a rising star of crime fiction." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Already a hit in the U.K., Suspect may do for psychological thrillers what Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent did for the legal variety." Booklist

Review:

"Suspect is one of those rare literary gems, a beautifully written thriller that is both moving and relentlessly suspenseful. This is a debut not to be missed!" Tess Gerritsen, author of Body Double

Review:

"Suspect isn't...original....Still, Robotham gives the cliché a solid workout." (Grade: B) Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Nail-biting tension full of fine characterization, brilliantly researched detail, and subtle humor." The Mirror

Review:

"A clever plot...an absorbing read...a welcome new name in the genre." The Telegraph

Review:

"A highly effective thriller...well-engineered plot, with gathering horrors...a gripper." Literary Review (U.K.)

Review:

"Terrific...a classic 'wrong man' thriller that puts its hero in hot water, then raises the Fahrenheit to a fever pitch....Robotham not only builds the suspense masterfully but tops it off with a stunning twist." People

Review:

"Believable and authentic from the first sentence, Suspect is altogether an accomplished piece of work. Robotham doesn't put a foot wrong in his plotting, pace, or inventiveness." Weekend Australian
