Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched. Nothing she can quite put her finger on - a whisper of breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye - and now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel has been missing for more than a year.
Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for her birthday. It was supposed to be a celebration of her life. But it's not the story anyone was expecting...

I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would... from start to finish.
"The best of the series"
My favourite book of the series, very well written, amazing how you change your mind about main character every chapter, is she genuine victim or is she mental killer? Only down side it's narration, I'm sorry but Sean Barrett isn't very good. Great book. I'm getting next one in the series now.
"As the story develops you get more and more hooked in"
The story is very well read with different intonation for each character.
This is a gripping story that develops yet twists and turns up the unexpected too.
Well worth reading
"Strong Thriller, well written though not 'great' writing"
Clearly written, with a strong performance by Barrett. Not on a par with Mankell but worth the listen.
"Best book I have listened to!"
The book kept you guessing all the way through. It made me shout out loud - really did enjoy the characters and the story.
Getting to really get involved with the characters
Probably the final chase to the farm
Yes - almost
I am now going to start listening to the Michael Robotham - Joseph O'loughlin series it was so good
Having never read this author or heard this narrator previously, I had no expectations whatsoever- but I couldn't stop listening....to the point of only getting two hours sleep last night! Full of well defined characters, enough twists and turns to make the grade at Alton Towers, this book was thoroughly enjoyable and, from someone who loves this genre, comes highly recommended! Can't wait to download my next one!
"A must read!!"
Kept you genuinely hanging on until the end, thought i saw the twist coming, but defiantly not the extent of it!
The twists. It was quite a long book but kept you gripped
His overall performance was great.
Compelled me to download the rest of the Joe O'Laughlin series
"Looking for a book so good it'll keep you wanting"
Best page turner.
I'm long enough in the tooth to second guess what's going to happen next .. not this one, I't keeps you listening & guessing all the time.
Sean has such an array of voices, I was really into the different characters and his infliction in the voices as required made all the difference.
If I could keep awake all that time yes, but it did keep me awake for 90% of my flight from London Heathrow to Los Angeles last week.
I shall be looking out for Sean Barrett in my next purchases as he is so good. .
"Best in the series"
I've enjoyed all the books in this series but this was the best yet. It was also nice not to be irritated by the separated wife or have a member of Jo's family involved as they were barely mentioned in this story. It was great suspense thoroughly enjoyable. The narrator as alway was great.
"Disturbing but brilliant"
This book gave me goosebumps but it was so gripping and well written. Twists and turns at so many points and really interesting characters. Brilliant!
