Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Michael Robotham brings us face-to-face with a manipulative psychopath who has destroyed countless lives and is about to claim one final victim.

Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched: A warm breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye that vanishes when she turns her head.

She has reason to be frightened. Her husband Daniel has inexplicably vanished, and the police have no leads in the case. Without proof of death or evidence of foul play, she can't access his bank accounts or his life insurance. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin.

O'Loughlin is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past and anxious to uncover what Marnie is withholding that could help with her treatment. The breakthrough in Marnie's therapy and Daniel's disappearance arrives when Marnie shares with O'Loughlin her discovery of the Big Red Book, a collage of pictures, interviews, and anecdotes from Marnie's friends and relatives that Daniel had been compiling as part of a surprise birthday gift.

Daniel's explorations into Marnie's past led him to a shocking revelation on the eve of his disappearance: Anyone who has ever gotten close to Marnie has paid an exacting price. A cold-blooded killer is eliminating the people in Marnie's life, and now that O'Laughlin is a part of it, he is next in line.

this author can write a great story

This series is outstanding. there has been only one story that was a little slow for me. even then, the story warmed to a nice pitch. if this series is an indicator of his skill, this author has a fan in me.

Twists and turns that will make you dizzy!

... and that is a good thing. WOW! Author and narrator blend together a tale of mystery, family issues, murder, psychological trauma and drama to bring us a great novel, with an ending I didn't see coming. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was very surprised several times with the finality of the story. Wait until the last few seconds at the end. Surprise! Wow! There is much more to enjoy in this novel. Highly Recommended!

Robotham is a master story teller.

This book started slowly for me but as the story unfolded it became clear that the groundwork was being laid to pull the reader in, and oh my, it did pull me in!. It became fascinating and suspenseful. I had a hard time turning off the book when I needed to do other things. I ordered this book after reading The Secrets She Keeps and now I just ordered Shatter. I have become a Robotham fan!

Just read it.

This book was incredible. This narrator was incredible. If you're looking for a psychological thriller and suspense- you've found it. The plot summery doesn't do this book justice.
Read it.

Yet another female kidnapped!

Great narration, but the female victim/stalker/kidnapper theme in this series is a bit too repetitive. The attempt at a twist in the tale is way too predictable. That said, still worth a listen.
