Publisher's Summary

Two missing girls. Two brutal murders. All connected to one farm house. Who is to blame?

When pretty and popular teenagers Piper Hadley and Tash McBain disappear one Sunday morning, the investigation captivates a nation but the 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 and ex-cop Vincent Ruiz, persuade the police to re-open the investigation. But they are racing against time to save the girls from someone with an evil, calculating and twisted mind....

    "Robotham is the real deal!"

    He knows how to spin a yarn with great characters, fast pacing and terrific suspense. No I don't like everything about this series, but Robotham consistently delivers a 4 star performance.

    You will like this book if you enjoy police procedurals, flawed heroes, a unique mystery and tremendous suspense. Sean Barrett is stellar with the narration.

    "Best Suspense Writer Going!"

    Michael Robotham is probably my favorite mystery writer of the era, and his books as a group are so well read on audio that I make a real effort to listen rather than read them. There has been a delay getting some of them in the US, and I'm just so glad they are finally available! (Note: I'm writing this review some time after listening to the book!)

    MR is a master of creating an intolerable situation - in this case two girls held captive for years. His characters feel like real people, laid bare - no excuses, no whitewash, and as a reader I don't feel manipulated into rooting for an impossibly perfect character or hating someone who has nothing likeable about them.

    I did find the ending slightly contrived, but that's usually the case with thriller. There weren't many real susprises if you've read a lot of mysteries written in the past 20 years or so. I won't go into details as this didn't detract from the listening experience, just be aware that the end is not the best part of this one!

    "The Best of the Bunch"
    What did you love best about Say You're Sorry?

    It was an excellent book with a number of solid twists. It also tied up some lose ends nicely. I would say it is the best book in this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As always, it was Vincent Ruiz. Smart, tough, funny, and sympathetic, I always wanted to know more about him and his life.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. He performs consistently well.


    Any additional comments?

    It would appear that this series is over. I hope that's not the case, but if we're not to see Joe again, I'm glad the book ended the way it did. I could also read a whole series based around Vincent Ruiz and would love it if the author was leaning in that direction.

    "No need to say you're sorry for choosing this bk"
    If you could sum up Say You're Sorry in three words, what would they be?

    well written, good story, talented narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    multi-faceted characters


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

    They'll all so good. You know immediately which character is speaking .


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Well, yes but mustn't give the story away


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to a number of Mr. Robotham's books and have enjoyed them all. I think the narrator is very talented also. Doesn't particularly "act" the characters just lets them tell their stories.

    "Great!"
    What made the experience of listening to Say You're Sorry the most enjoyable?

    The story line and the charaters. The story is unreal but still beliveable and I loved trying to figure out who dunnit.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie, she is such a teen and the author really shows it though she doesn't play a big part.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Tash shows her loyalty to her bestfriend to save her from harm.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud sometimes when the counciler and the ex cop bantered.


    Any additional comments?

    Give the reader some time to understand. He's good.

    Story
    "Excellent!"

    Three years ago two 15 year old girls vanished. There is a police investigation but they are thought to have run away to London. Until the body of one of the girls is found after a blizzard, barefoot and sexually mutilated. Joe O'Loughlin is asked to review the original investigation in light of the girls obviously not having run away. Told by both Joe, and Piper Hadley, the surviving teen, Robotham writes yet another perfect suspense-filled mystery.

    And, as always, Sean Barrett is the perfect narrator.

    "LOVED the story, but had trouble with the accent!"
    Where does Say You're Sorry rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved the story and I the narrator had a nice voice, but I had to listen VERY closely and slow down the audio from 1.5 to 1 because the thick British (?) accent was very difficult for this American Grandma to understand.

    "Another great Joe O'Laughlin story"

    One of my favorite series, especially with Sean Barrett as the reader. Joe O'Laughlin again finds himself involved in a gruesome crime investigation and sifts through and interprets possibly relevant information to come to a unexpected conclusion.

    Story
    "Oceans of sad - never again"

    Good writer in every sense of the term, and wonderful narrator. Plot structure, character development, sentences: everything clicks. The only problem is the only one that matters for me. OMG is this a sad story. The weight of listening to it is like being covered in the emotional equivalent of the lead sheet dentists use to protect your body during X-rays. Triple that weight, and you've got it.

    Two 15-year-old girls go missing. The reader knows where they are - stuck in a basement as toys to a sadist/rapist. Three years after the abduction, yes, three years, this story starts. The fallout for their families is nuclear. The story switches between the girls (one is soon dead) and the families/police, plus the hero profiler/narrator. Oh and yes, let's not forget the falsely accused dupe.

    Robotham piles on and piles on. There's suspense, but it's undermined by dread. I haven't finished yet, and even though I'll hang in for the end, I'm promising myself never again for the excellent MIchael Robotham.
