Publisher's Summary

He thinks the truth will set her free. She knows it will kill them.

A heart-stopping psychological thriller from the number one best-selling author of The Secrets She Keeps and The Other Wife.

She has secrets.

Six years ago, Evie Cormac was found hiding in a secret room in the aftermath of a brutal murder. But nobody has ever discovered her real name or where she came from, because everybody who tries ends up dead. 

He needs answers.

Forensic Psychologist Cyrus Haven believes the truth will set Evie free. Ignoring her warnings, he begins to dig into her past, only to disturb a hornet's nest of corrupt and powerful people who have been waiting to find Evie - the final witness to their crimes. Unbeknownst to him, Cyrus is leading them straight to Evie. The truth will not set her free. It will get them killed. 

From Australia's foremost crime writer Michael Robotham, this is the second explosive novel featuring gifted criminal psychologist Cyrus Haven following the Edgar-award nominated Good Girl, Bad Girl.

Strange but Similar

I liked it very much but I did see a lot of Liz Salander and Mikael Blomkvist so I hope there is more to come.

Sadly, a too familiar plot line

No doubt it is a miserable year and when writing this the author would not have had an inkling.
I grimly noticed a day in October 2020 that is referenced in the novel thinking, “ will most of us make it that far?” This is an indirect way of approaching the fact that this novel scarcely diverted me during any listening session .
Cyrus is not a patch on the good old Jo from past series, Parkinsons or not.
Jo the voice actor did a great job with often tedious, soulless writing.
At least there was something to fill the deliberate holding back of the release of most novels during the pandemic.. or I wouldn’t have finished this book.

A Gripping Sequel!

The continuing story of Evie Cormack and her psychologist Cyrus is just a great listen in every respect! Highly recommend it, it won’t disappoint.
