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....

Enjoyable

Robotham writes well and this book certainly keeps up the tension, with some clever plot twists which continue right to the end. He divides the narration between his protagonist, the psychologist Joe McLoughlin, working alongside the police enquiries, and the spoken diary of a kidnapped teenage girl. It's a balance which works well, allowing the reader/listener to form theories as to which direction the action will take. The book is beautifully read by Sean Barrett and I enjoyed it.

Good story, well read

First book I've really enjoyed enough to comment on in quite a while. Kept me gripped from the start and didn't let go.
Good to hear a narrator who doesn't try to give every character a different accent or insists on making every young female sound like some wispy, giggling air head.
Downloading more as we speak!

Say You're Sorry

Piper Hadley and Tash McDaid went missing three years ago from their Oxfordshire village and were never found. A double murder in a nearby farmhouse links the Thames Valley Police to the earlier disappearance and Professor Joe O'Loughlin is called in to assist.

As ever, a gripping psychological thriller from the author. Fans will also be pleased to hear that former DI Vincent Ruiz also appears.

The narrator, Sean Barrett, was excellent.

One of his best

I've now listened to most of the Joe O'Loughlin series and this is certainly among the best. Held my attention all the way through. The ending is a little unusual perhaps.

Warning! This book will spoil anything else you read!

Michael Robotham has superseded Ken Follett as my favourite all time author. His original text, living breathing characters and plots with more twists and turns than spaghetti junction means every other book I pick up seems somehow inadequate and lacking a vital element. I'm going cold turkey because I only have a couple more of his books to read. Oh well. I'll just have to read them all again!

Another brilliant story

Another brilliantly crafted story. The subject matter is harrowing, kidnaped and abused young girls, but the drama and method of delivery is superb. The story is told from the girls perspective and through Joe O'Loughlin's eyes. Fantastic narration as usual

As good as ever.

Always a good listen from this author combined with the familiar voice of the narrator. Just a little graphic in places for my taste.
