Publisher's Summary

In "the most suspenseful book I read all year" (Stephen King), a psychologist faces off against a killer who destroys his victims from the inside out.

Joe O'Loughlin is in familiar territory--standing on a bridge high above a flooded gorge, trying to stop a distraught woman from jumping. "You don't understand," she whispers and lets go. Joe is haunted by his failure to save the woman until her teenage daughter finds him and reveals that her mother never would have committed suicide--not like that. She was terrified of heights.

What could have driven her to commit such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil? Having devoted his career to repairing damaged minds, Joe must now confront an adversary who tears them apart.

With pitch-perfect dialogue, believable characters, and astonishingly unpredictable plot twists, Shatter is guaranteed to keep even the most avid thriller readers riveted long into the night.

    My reviews are rather simple but only because I want to convey my impressions of a story. I leave summaries to the publisher. LOVE Audible!

    "How Far Would You Go?"

    This third installment was the best yet. I was immediately hooked from the first few words. Joseph O'Loughlin has become one of my favorite characters whom I like to revisit as I listen to this series.
    I found myself confronted with the question of how far I would go to save someone I love. And then, would my actions save them anyway?
    If you like psychological thrillers, this is a must listen. The narrator is excellent and I can't wait to listen to him again.
    Another winner! Thanks Audible!!

    "ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS"

    This author's books give you everything. original characters, fantastic plots and excellent writing. My mind never drifts. I fall deep into the story. One request: keep them coming and use the main characters again and again. I love them

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "A Shark Too Far"

    Michael Robotham almost writes well enough (and he reeeeely writes well) to make this improbable plot with more holes than a Spanish lace... work. Unfortunately craft didn't do it. I'll be more careful in pre-reading reviews of the next Robotham before I buy it. Maybe Sean Barrett could take a lesson or two in doing female voices? His cast sounded not only strongly male, but in a number of cases, it was difficult to differentiate between the speakers even when they were supposed to be differently gendered.

    I'd say pass on this one.

    Story
    "The dynamic duo does it again."
    If you could sum up Shatter in three words, what would they be?

    The title fits!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Every sentence propels you to the next. The momentum consistently grows.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the character to life. He is an extremely talented narrator.


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

    Yes - but it took 2 days.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. He ranks very hight on my list of favorites. The stories are abstract, emotional and edgy. The characters are intriguing; both bad and good. I'm currently downloading his last book offered on Audible. Please ... we need more!

    "Scary"

    Kept me on the edge of my seat. Fast paced and surreal. Hard hitting commentary on use of torture on innocent civilians. Not for the faint of heart.

    "Robotham fan but too violent for me"

    Too creepy too violent too morbid for me. And I am a Robotham fan. Narrator is great though.

    "Another great Joe O'Loughlin story"

    An enjoyable book, well paced and well written with twists and turns a plenty, so that even when I knew who did it there was still enough suspense and I was invested in the characters to keep listening.
