Description

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 one loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient - and the biggest lie of his life.

Over the top.

Well performed despite being overwritten. I’d appreciate knowing about descriptions of extreme violence and abuse beforehand, much like a movie does. But otherwise engaging and immersive.

The main character is an idiot

The main character, Joe, is whiney and self-serving; but then, his stupid choices are what drives the plot. The reader is good, but he drops his voice to almost a whisper, causing the listener to lose dialogue. I struggled to finish this one.

Sound manager needs a new career.

The sound editor was MIA for this audio book. The loud vs quiet voices were very distinct. Either I felt like I was irritating my neighbors with the volume or I was missing sides of the conversation.

Keeps you on your toes!

I really enjoyed this book. It’s was suspenseful and riveting. The twists and turns of the story really made me think. The outcome was not at all what I thought it would be.

couldn't "put it down"

I mostly listen while driving, found myself looking for excuses to be in the car.

at times I did find the main characters decisions maddening but it all came together in the end.

I'm looking forward to book 2

Great book

The suspect is a really good read. (okay, listen). The story is engrossing so its not a story that you can easily fall asleep to while you are listening. The protagonist of the story is a complex person and the supporting cast is easy to like or hate depending on which side they are on.
The narrator changes accents to match the characters. He is easy to listen to.

Top of the class

This is the first Michael Robotham book I have listened too, this after reading Bombproof.
This book holds you in suspense until the end. Fast paced with characters fleshed out so they become almost real. The reader Crispin Redman deserves a lot of praise for his portrayal of the various characters in the book and in no small way adds to the listening pleasure. Well worth the purchase.

A Psychologist Becomes a Sleuth

This was a rewarding accidental discovery for me. The good news is that there are eight more books to look forward to in this series that is not driven by another flawed detective. (I'm following a few of those) Instead we have Joseph O'Loughlin who is a flawed psychologist. He makes some bad choices and they come back to haunt him tenfold in this mystery/thriller set in England.

Although imperfect, this psychologist is capable of some deep insights into human nature giving us a different perspective than the traditional hard ass cop protagonist. It is refreshing to join along with Mr O'Loughlin who has a credible background in something different than detective science as he attempts to unravel the strands of a perplexing murder. In the process, there are enough twists in this book to keep mystery fans engaged.

The narrator, Cripsin Redman does an excellent job with the voices for the various characters. I especially liked how he portrayed the Scottish friend who had designs on our hero's wife.

I am looking forward to the next book in the Michael Robotham Joseph O'Loughlin series and if you are looking for something where a professional detective or policeman isn't driving the story - we get a lot of those - give this one a try.

One of the best thriller writers yet!

Trying to find another good mystery, suspense writer? The this author will be for you. I guarantee him as one of the very best. I always like to read series in order so I've just finished The Suspect and am very impressed with this first book in the series O'Loughlin & Luiz. The audiobook was narrated by Crispin Redman who did an exemplary job. If you've ever watched the TV show Top Gear, where they slot in order the fastest drivers and the best performing cars on to a big board, then you'll get it when I say I'm moving Michael Robothom nearly to the top where my favourite writers, Tana French, Lisa Gardener, Harlan Coben and Stephen King reside. I am now looking forward to an excellent feast of his other books and, please, please, Michael, never stop writing!

The best thriller I've read this year

What makes this crime novel so good is the character of the protagonist. A psychologist with a terminal illness is something different. And having it written in the present tence, first person, gets you really close to him. The plot is such that, seeing him at home with his wife and delightful daughter, doesn't distract you from the main story. Crispin Redman's hard, sharp voice is just right for thrillers. I'm just off to bed now with Book 2 in the series.

Gripping Stuff Indeed

Well well well.
The few Robotham Audio books I have listened to are consistently great listens.This is no exception. Story, narration by Crispen Redman.. I really can not fault this one. Yes it is part of series, yet each story is complete in itself. Even though you can guess our hero will make it. the ending does have a little twist.

So slow!

A great performance by the narrator, but oh my gosh, the story was so slow in developing and the author went into so much unnecessary detail, which I found so boring. I gave up! I just couldnt bear listening to half an hour of what the guy was eating for breakfast, or what his wife was wearing...

High expectations, but a bit of a let-down

Michael Rowbotham has been extravagantly praised, so I approached this novel with eagerness. However it seemed to unravel for me as it went along, especially after a strong beginning. I found the protagonist more and more irritating, and the motives of the killer not credible. The introduction of a second 'baddie' just before the end was a cop out. The performance, apart from a few idiosyncracies, was excellent.

Great thriller, spot on narration.

When an unknown woman is found brutally murdered, the police call in psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin, who has a gift for figuring people out based on non-verbal cues, in hopes he can help them discover her identity. O'Loughlin has a roster of interesting clients, one of which is particularly disturbed and disturbing. But he is also happily married, and does his best to protect his wife and child from secrets of his own. Quite suddenly, O'Loughlin goes from being a collaborator to becoming the prime suspect in the case, and DI Vincent Ruiz, convinced he's got his man, isn't about to give O'Loughlin any breaks. Someone is trying to frame the doctor and he knows exactly who it is, but he'll have to put his own life at risk and pull quite a stunt to prove the killer is at large if he has any hope of putting his life back together.

I thought this was a great thriller and took an instant liking to the psychologist as the principal character and narrator of the story, so immediately followed up with the next book in the series. Crispin Redman's narration was just spot on.
