Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author Michael Robotham conquered international best-seller lists with this electrifying thriller.

After a woman is brutally slain, investigators bring psychiatrist Joe O'Loughlin in for expert consultation. Joe is shocked to discover the dead woman is a former patient of his who cried rape when he rebuffed her sexual advances. Citing doctor/patient confidentiality, Joe hides this information. But the truth emerges, and suddenly he is the prime suspect.

    Story
    "How much stress can one man endure?"

    This novel is very well done. The characters and conflict slowly unfold, reach a crisis point where I thought that the poor man couldn’t take any more stress, and then the situation is resolved at the criminal level. Joseph O’Loughlin is left with the job of putting his personal life back in order.

    I plan to move on to the next book: Lost.

    Simon Prebble is an excellent narrator.

    Story
    "I'm loving Robotham!"
    Would you listen to Suspect again? Why?

    Absolutely! I love his writing style, the narrator and just plain great story. My first was Say You're sorry. It was so good I went to #1 to start from the beginning. I find myself listening at every opportunity and then so disappointed when it's over. Books are the same as movies for me, if I like it I can do it over again and enjoy it just as much as the first time.


    What other book might you compare Suspect to and why?

    A couple of Robert Goddard's books are this good.


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

    Because I'm not a great reader, the narrator brings books to life. A really good narrator makes a read feel like a movie. Prebble does a great job of it.


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

    No laughing or crying, just can't put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    It's just so enjoyable to find a series you like as much this one.

    "Started slow, but worth sticking with"

    I almost gave up on this book about an hour into it, but then I gave it another try and really enjoyed the story. A good book overall.

    Story
    "Solid and Intriguing"
    If you could sum up Suspect in three words, what would they be?

    Psychological, Smart, Consistent


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

    Not necessarily a thrill-ride, but smart and intriguing. I found myself invested in the characters and the outcome.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

    I like little Charly. I read book 4 first and know about this family and characters already, so seeing her as a little girl was fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I read a later book first and find that the Parkinson's and cutting are a continued theme. Not bad, just an observation. I like the narrators accent and style. I also like the quick explanations of psychology experiments or principles throughout. I am a Psych major and appreciate the effort. Great characters and narration. I intend to listen to the whole series.

    "WOW!!....knocked my socks off in suspense..."
    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    The brilliant pairing of Simon Prebble and Michael Robotham, made this a listening pleasure.
    So happy to have discovered Michael Robotham and immediately downloaded his other books narrated by Simon and Sean Barrett. I'm in 'mystery' Nivana...thanks, Audible!


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    BRILLIANT....He makes a book come alive...I could never get tired of his narrations.

    "Excellent"
    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    I was able to enjoy the story while performing a multitude of tasks. Occasionally, I nodded off listening to Simon's calm and relaxing voice.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Robotham? Why or why not?

    Absolutely. He writes a very good mystery with interesting characters and a quick pace.


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

    I have not, but I love the sound of his voice.


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

    That would have been wonderful, if I had the time.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't make the same mistake I did! Read the books in proper succession!

    "Good Book, Not Great"

    I think most people that enjoy sophisticated mysteries or thrillers will find something to like in this story, but it likely won't make it to your favorites list. That said, parts of the book were very intriguing and well-written, especially the parts utilizing the main character's psychology training. Unfortunately, the middle of the book is better than the ending.

    Would I listen to another Michael Robotham book? I would say yes because he strives to write something more unique in this genre.

    I read them all and liked the Psychologist as profiler point of view. If you are looking for a series and can't find anything else, this will do just fine.

    "Riveting, and breathtaking!"

    This story is so well told by Michael Robotham, that it is hard to imagine how it could be improved upon, and then Simon Prebble's narration takes it to another level! The story is rich with detail, and I love the fact that we only ever know as much as the lead character knows, and we follow along as he slowly pieces together who is behind the terrifying threats to himself and his family.

    I had to listen to it in a single sitting: I could not put it down!

    "Enjoyable and suspenseful"

    This book kept me interested throughout. The author was adept at maintaining the suspense and keeping me guessing about the identity of the killer. Although Simon Prebble sounded older to me than the 42-year-old character he was portraying, he made up for this through his skilled narration. He is definitely a master of pacing, inflection, pitch, etc. His acting ability, combined with the author's story, made this a book I will recommend to my friends.
