Publisher's Summary

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....

    Story
    "Loved it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book especially to a local friend as I live in Oxford so recognised all the places so it made listening even more special by knowing where the story was taking place.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the narration of Piper, even though it was read by a man, his interpretation was so good that I could imagine a young girl in trouble.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I have enjoyed the whole book so picking out a particular scene is difficult although the last bit when piper has escaped made me hold my breath in parts as she was hiding.


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

    I didn't cry but the story made me think about recent newspaper reports where people have been found after years in captive and wondered if this is what life was like for them and how someone can ever have the kind of mentality to do this to another person.


    Any additional comments?

    I would easily listen to this again.

    "As good as ever"
    If you could sum up Say You're Sorry in three words, what would they be?

    worth listening to


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Say You're Sorry?

    the twist at the end


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    there were more than one really


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    to be honest I would never want to listen to a book all in one sitting as life is too busy, but I relish the time I escape and look forward to my next fix which is just as good


    Any additional comments?

    Every Michael Robotham book has been worth the money and I love Ruez and the narrators way of speaking for him.

    Story
    "In a minority but for me his least succesful book"
    If you’ve listened to books by Michael Robotham before, how does this one compare?

    I've enjoyed all of Robotham's books and I think Sean Barrett is an outstanding performer. However, I found the narrative hard to engage with as it constantly changes between Joe and the kidnapped girl. I think Robotham failed to find a believable voice for the girl and, because her sections are so large, this makes it hard work. Barrett does his best but delivering half the book in a teenage girl's voice is probably beyond any male performer - as an audiobook this really ought to have had a female voice for the girl's sections.

    All the other books in this series have been five star listens for me but this one disappointed.

    Story
    "A wonderfully written book"

    I enjoyed this book so much... it's my first read by this author.

    It's suitably chilling and reminds you that although this is fiction, it wasn't fiction for the Cleveland girls who were held captive for 10 years. In the book, you think 3 is such a terribly long time.

    The hours flew by and the ending was quite superb. I say it again and again... Sean Barrett is just the best narrator and I often wish I could tell him myself. I picked this book partly on the basis that he was the narrator. He never disappoints and for me, brings all the characters to life. His voice is never irritating, I love it!

    Would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a good thriller. I am definitely going to seek Mr Robotham out again.

    "Excellent"
    What did you like most about Say You're Sorry?

    Nailbiting storyline that had me sitting in my car waiting to hear the end, even though I had arrived at work!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator is excellent, one of the few who can seamlessly go from male to female and back again

    "I'm certainly not sorry!"

    I've read the "Joseph O'Loughlin" series of books chronologically and this is definitely the best so far.
    You CAN read it as a stand alone book without losing out too much on the history of the characters which builds and deepens throughout the series but I would recommend starting at the beginning.
    Joseph is once again called in to help the police and, with the help of his old friend and ex detective Ruiz, sets out to find a missing girl before its too late.
    Robotham splits the story and tells it both through the diary of the missing girl and the perspective of O'Loughlin and the result is a beautifully woven tale that will keep you guessing, with a lump in your throat, until the very end.
    The narrative of Sean Barrett is outstanding and, if you read the whole series, you will welcome the comfortable return of his dulcet tones.
    A must-read!

    Story
    "Couple of niggles, but an excellent novel."

    Teeny things irritated a bit in this book: No girl in the UK ever refers to her "panties" and no man in the UK ever suggested that something was "four blocks away". However, apart from these occasional (minor) errors of language, I thought this was a wonderful book which would undoubtedly have worked better if the narration had been shared with a woman reader. Piper's part of the book being read by a man was distracting, I can't imagine why it was done by a man, especially in her later sequences where she was thinking her own thoughts rather than writing them down.


    I'm fairly new to the thriller novel and my problem with this genre generally (and this book in particular) is that the victim has to be a helpless young female and the chief rescuer an unfit man. Is it just a sexist attitude ("Even if I have a serious medical complaint, I'm a big man who can always rescue a silly, disobedient girl") or is it because men can't deal with the reality that a great many more men are victims of violence than women? Maybe the truth is that male writers are more than able to handle man-on-woman abuse while man-on-man abusive violence is too uncomfortable a thing thing to write about?

    Getting back to the point, this book was a riveting and exciting read - my first time with Michael Robotham and it won't be my last. Five stars for the story and writing, but a reduction for the narration which was not bad, but there should have been a female narrator.

    Hopefully Mr Robotham will think about having some big, strong men being the helpless victim next time. I hope so.

    "Disturbing, Poweful Gripping"

    I haven't been able to stop listening to this book. Sean Barrett has done a superb job on narrating this dark yet gripping story. Michael Robotham has managed to make the whole plot believable and from this book I have now decided that I want to listen to more of his work. Give it a go you won't be disappointed.

    "Love this book"
    Where does Say You're Sorry rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's almost on the top of the list. I've got really adicted to M. Robotham. I could't stop listening.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character is very well drawn, it very autentical and he's way of thinking through crimes is hipnotic.

    "A real page turner - in audible terms!!"

    Just when you thought you knew whodunnit, another twist. This author didnt take the easy way out with any of the twists. well thought out.
