My name is Piper Hadley and I went missing on the last Saturday of the summer holidays three years ago.
When Piper and her friend Tash disappeared, there was a huge police search, but they were never found. Now Tash, reaching breaking point at the abuse their captor has inflicted on them, has escaped, promising to come back for Piper. Clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin and his stalwart companion, ex-cop Vincent Ruiz, force the police to re-open the case after Joe is called in to assess the possible killer of a couple in their own home and finds a connection to the missing girls. But they are racing against time to save Piper from someone with an evil, calculating and twisted mind....

I have only just discovered this author which is great news for me as I can now look forward to reading his other novels! Wonderfully written by an author of some considerable talent, paced just right, with nicely drawn characters and great plot. I will also say that I thought Sean Barrett narration was great. Highly recommended.
"Edge of the seat crime"
Great plot great characters. Sensitive and shocking issues are dealt with in a honest, thought provoking and refreshing way.The reader is always kept guessing as to the next turn of events and the outcomes are seldom anticipated. I always look forward to Michael Robotham's next book!
this is an interesting book with two separate narratives (current and flashback) developing throughout.
there are a number of clues revealed as the story unfolds, but these aren't obvious until the conclusion (well, they weren't obvious to me).
the plot / story stacks up well and the narration is excellent. some recent listens (e.g. Nesbo's The Leopard) were too long and unnecessarily convoluted but this isn't, hence the five stars.
I purchased this book to listen to as I painted every door in my house over the bank holiday week-end. This book was riveting and I finished painting 10 doors plus frames and the hall skirting in two and a half days. Listening made the job enjoyable. I have read many of his books, all good,and listening was just as good as reading it myself. The characters felt real and the story was compelling just had to finish it. So all the painting got done. wonderful.
"It kept me griped right up to the end"
I was up to till 2am wanting to find out what was going to happen. The characters are well formed and believable. I am only sorry it is now over and I can no longer delve into Joe and Ruizs world.
It is one of the best books I have ever listened to.
"Michael Robotham: Say You're Sorry"
I always enjoy Michael Robotham's Joe O'Loughlin books, and this one doesn't disappoint. An exciting plot and memorable characters, with Sean Barratt providing and excellent narration.
"GREAT partnership of writing and narration"
Not much I can add to the other plaudits here because this audio-book is a really gripping experience. I've read several Joe O'Loughlin novels and this is a very dark one but is dealt with so masterfully by both the author and the narrator in a great partnership. Just what you want from a terrific audio mystery. There are a few loose-ends but they're small enough not to detract. Joe can be a bit of a wimp - but he's a humanitarian hero, thanks to some great insightful writing. Remember also that worms can turn!
This is my first Michael Robotham book, i'm usually a chick lit fan, and I loved it. Listened to it at every opportunity and it kept me guessing all the way through. Every time I thought I'd got it there was another twist that proved me wrong.
Now to download another.
"Say you sorry psychological thriller"
Scary insightful and very very clever .michael robotham shows incredible insight into the human condition.
"Another excellent read"
This is the third Robotham book I have read and I have to say it didn't disappoint in any way. The characters are always well rounded and the psychology and police work are detailed enough to be very believable. It's certainly a different view on things than the traditional crime where it's all about the police work involved. The narration, as always with Sean Barrett is excellent. A truly good read.
