    *3.75-ish stars* Having discovered Michael Robotham?s writing last year?I obsessed over two of his standalones?and being a bit of a commitment-phobe when it comes to investing in a long-standing series, I decided to take a leap and start here, with book nine. The fact that I?...

    A very character driven series, and yes another series I have read from the beginning. Joseph is a pyschologist, one who works with those others have given up on. His life lately has been stressful, sad, as he now tackles single parenting after the death of his wife. He has had to lear...

    When Joe O?Loughlin received the call that his father was in a coma in hospital, his wife by his side, Joe had no idea the trip to the hospital and his father?s room would change his life, and everything he?d known and believed about his parents would be shattered. The woman besi...

    The awesomeness of Michael Robotham's writing is once again on display in this, the ninth Joe O?Loughlin book. If you?re a fan already, you will love this book. It offers a much closer look into Joe's personal life than ever before. This book can also be read as a stand alone becau...

    I read this from beginning to end in one sitting. I guess that's what you call unputdownable! Definitely five stars from me. Poor Joseph, still reeling from a very personal loss, still learning to cope with Parkinson's Disease, still dealing with raising two teenagers and now he fin...

    Poor old Joe O'Loughlin has a tough time being one of Michael Robotham's characters. He has to live with Mr Parkinson, the name he gives the horrible disease that is trying to take over his body. During his long and successful career as a psychologist working with his detective friend ...

    Imagine you get called to hospital because your father has serious injuries and is in a coma. You are told your mother is with him but when you get there it's a complete stranger who claims to be his second wife. What would you do if you where faced with this situation I wonder? I thi...

    I'm a huge huge fan of this series and the engaging beautifully drawn character of Joe O?Loughlin so I was very much looking forward to entering his world once again. This story hits very close to home when Joe discovers dark secrets lurk at the heart of his own family. Add murder...

    I did not realise that this was book 9 in the series. It read fine as a stand alone though and I really enjoyed it. Back to book one for me now !! ...

    I feel like Robotham of late has a simple formula for when he writes. The last 3 or 4 of his novels Ive read I've felt alot of similarities in the style and structure. This picks up #9 with Joe. Ive only read a couple others with this character but I had higher expectations. The first ...

    This is my 5th book by Michael Robotham and once again, I found I could not put it down. So many twists and turns, lies, and secrets throughout!!! Well done!! ...

    4.5 stars. I think I had a different book by this author on my to read list but one of my libraries had this recent release so I grabbed it. No. 9 in the Joseph O?Loughlin series apparently so I have dived in very late but it didn?t really matter, I think it was fine as a stand-al...

    My View: I love the Joe O?Loughlin series ? I am invested in the main characters, their stories and the crimes they solve. This episode centres on Joe and his family as suspects, victims and villains, what a read! And despite this book being number nine in the series it can just a...

    Very sad read. Not as much of a thriller as I hoped it would be, but very deep and thought provoking! I give this 3.6 Stars. ...

    I enjoy this author and this particular series. I enjoy his books so much, that I didn't mind parting with an audible credit in order to have this one. This was so close to 5 stars. Part of me just wants to round up. The hook at the beginning was highly effective. I loved when that...

    Robotham never fails to captivate and entertain me. Another gripping addition to a fantastic series. ...

    Michael Robotham is in a league of his own when it comes to thrillers. ...

    This is only the second Michael Robotham novel that I read. The Other Wife is the ninth novel in the series. Even though I haven't read any other O'Loughlin novels, my enjoyment wasn't at all diminished, as there was plenty of background information about the characters. Joe O'L...

    I was overjoyed that The Other Wife saw the return of one of my favourite characters in crime fiction, psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. After the tragic sudden death of his wife Julianne, Joe is trying hard to raise his two daughters on his own. But tragedy is not done with Joe yet ? he ...

    I just could not get into this book, so it's time to move on. ...

    Solid entry in the Joe O'Laughlin series revolving around a vicious attack on Joe's father and his encounter with a woman who claims to be the dad's wife...but who isn't Joe's mom. Very character driven with plenty of focus on how Joe and his kids are handling the unexpected death of h...

    Michael Robotham is one of my favourite authors. I couldn't wait to read his latest book, The Other Wife - especially when I found out it was a Joseph O'Loughlin book. (9th in the series) Joe is a clinical psychologist, a widower, a father to two girls, a man living with Parkinson's...

    3/97. Michael Robotham is definitely one of the best modern crime writers around today. I love the way he writes. His words are melancholic, soulful, melodious, nostalgic and downright bootiful at times. You?re held in a thrall by his stories, desperate to get to the end so you fi...

    16 months after the tragic conclusion of "Close Your Eyes" clinical psychologist Joe O'Laughlin is called to the hospital where his elderly father William is clinging to life after being brutally attacked. But just who is this strange woman sitting at his dad's bedside, covered in bloo...

    I?ve read several books in this series, but while reading The Other Wife I realized I had missed a few books in the series. I like to read books in a series in the order they are written, thank goodness this book could be read as a stand-alone. A very excellent book, and I did catch ...

    I listen to talking books whilst cooking and/washing up so that?s just about every day. The best books for listening in this way need to have a narrative that grips and not be to complicated so that clatter and whistles, alarms, jets of steam don?t throw me off course - this is jus...

    This novel is gripping from the start! The more Joe investigates the further the fall from grace for his seemingly perfect parents, the twists are unpredictable and saw me reading long into the night. I also loved that the book wasn't entirely focused on the investigation you got to ex...

    The Other Wife is the most disappointing Joseph O'Loughlin book so far. * Minor spoilers ahead * It's a convoluted, messy domestic drama that enfolds when Joe's dad is found in a coma after a brutal home invasion. When Joe shows up to the hospital, he discovers his father's m...

    *3.75-ish stars* Having discovered Michael Robotham?s writing last year?I obsessed over two of his standalones?and being a bit of a commitment-phobe when it comes to investing in a long-standing series, I decided to take a leap and start here, with book nine. The fact that I?...

    A very character driven series, and yes another series I have read from the beginning. Joseph is a pyschologist, one who works with those others have given up on. His life lately has been stressful, sad, as he now tackles single parenting after the death of his wife. He has had to lear...

    When Joe O?Loughlin received the call that his father was in a coma in hospital, his wife by his side, Joe had no idea the trip to the hospital and his father?s room would change his life, and everything he?d known and believed about his parents would be shattered. The woman besi...

    The awesomeness of Michael Robotham's writing is once again on display in this, the ninth Joe O?Loughlin book. If you?re a fan already, you will love this book. It offers a much closer look into Joe's personal life than ever before. This book can also be read as a stand alone becau...

    I read this from beginning to end in one sitting. I guess that's what you call unputdownable! Definitely five stars from me. Poor Joseph, still reeling from a very personal loss, still learning to cope with Parkinson's Disease, still dealing with raising two teenagers and now he fin...

    Imagine you get called to hospital because your father has serious injuries and is in a coma. You are told your mother is with him but when you get there it's a complete stranger who claims to be his second wife. What would you do if you where faced with this situation I wonder? I thi...

    I'm a huge huge fan of this series and the engaging beautifully drawn character of Joe O?Loughlin so I was very much looking forward to entering his world once again. This story hits very close to home when Joe discovers dark secrets lurk at the heart of his own family. Add murder...

    I did not realise that this was book 9 in the series. It read fine as a stand alone though and I really enjoyed it. Back to book one for me now !! ...

    I feel like Robotham of late has a simple formula for when he writes. The last 3 or 4 of his novels Ive read I've felt alot of similarities in the style and structure. This picks up #9 with Joe. Ive only read a couple others with this character but I had higher expectations. The first ...

    This is my 5th book by Michael Robotham and once again, I found I could not put it down. So many twists and turns, lies, and secrets throughout!!! Well done!! ...

    4.5 stars. I think I had a different book by this author on my to read list but one of my libraries had this recent release so I grabbed it. No. 9 in the Joseph O?Loughlin series apparently so I have dived in very late but it didn?t really matter, I think it was fine as a stand-al...

    My View: I love the Joe O?Loughlin series ? I am invested in the main characters, their stories and the crimes they solve. This episode centres on Joe and his family as suspects, victims and villains, what a read! And despite this book being number nine in the series it can just a...

    Very sad read. Not as much of a thriller as I hoped it would be, but very deep and thought provoking! I give this 3.6 Stars. ...

    I enjoy this author and this particular series. I enjoy his books so much, that I didn't mind parting with an audible credit in order to have this one. This was so close to 5 stars. Part of me just wants to round up. The hook at the beginning was highly effective. I loved when that...

    Robotham never fails to captivate and entertain me. Another gripping addition to a fantastic series. ...

    Michael Robotham is in a league of his own when it comes to thrillers. ...

    This is only the second Michael Robotham novel that I read. The Other Wife is the ninth novel in the series. Even though I haven't read any other O'Loughlin novels, my enjoyment wasn't at all diminished, as there was plenty of background information about the characters. Joe O'L...

    I was overjoyed that The Other Wife saw the return of one of my favourite characters in crime fiction, psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. After the tragic sudden death of his wife Julianne, Joe is trying hard to raise his two daughters on his own. But tragedy is not done with Joe yet ? he ...

    *3.75-ish stars* Having discovered Michael Robotham?s writing last year?I obsessed over two of his standalones?and being a bit of a commitment-phobe when it comes to investing in a long-standing series, I decided to take a leap and start here, with book nine. The fact that I?...

    A very character driven series, and yes another series I have read from the beginning. Joseph is a pyschologist, one who works with those others have given up on. His life lately has been stressful, sad, as he now tackles single parenting after the death of his wife. He has had to lear...

    When Joe O?Loughlin received the call that his father was in a coma in hospital, his wife by his side, Joe had no idea the trip to the hospital and his father?s room would change his life, and everything he?d known and believed about his parents would be shattered. The woman besi...

    The awesomeness of Michael Robotham's writing is once again on display in this, the ninth Joe O?Loughlin book. If you?re a fan already, you will love this book. It offers a much closer look into Joe's personal life than ever before. This book can also be read as a stand alone becau...

    I read this from beginning to end in one sitting. I guess that's what you call unputdownable! Definitely five stars from me. Poor Joseph, still reeling from a very personal loss, still learning to cope with Parkinson's Disease, still dealing with raising two teenagers and now he fin...

    Poor old Joe O'Loughlin has a tough time being one of Michael Robotham's characters. He has to live with Mr Parkinson, the name he gives the horrible disease that is trying to take over his body. During his long and successful career as a psychologist working with his detective friend ...

    Imagine you get called to hospital because your father has serious injuries and is in a coma. You are told your mother is with him but when you get there it's a complete stranger who claims to be his second wife. What would you do if you where faced with this situation I wonder? I thi...

    I'm a huge huge fan of this series and the engaging beautifully drawn character of Joe O?Loughlin so I was very much looking forward to entering his world once again. This story hits very close to home when Joe discovers dark secrets lurk at the heart of his own family. Add murder...

    I did not realise that this was book 9 in the series. It read fine as a stand alone though and I really enjoyed it. Back to book one for me now !! ...

    I feel like Robotham of late has a simple formula for when he writes. The last 3 or 4 of his novels Ive read I've felt alot of similarities in the style and structure. This picks up #9 with Joe. Ive only read a couple others with this character but I had higher expectations. The first ...

    This is my 5th book by Michael Robotham and once again, I found I could not put it down. So many twists and turns, lies, and secrets throughout!!! Well done!! ...

    4.5 stars. I think I had a different book by this author on my to read list but one of my libraries had this recent release so I grabbed it. No. 9 in the Joseph O?Loughlin series apparently so I have dived in very late but it didn?t really matter, I think it was fine as a stand-al...

    My View: I love the Joe O?Loughlin series ? I am invested in the main characters, their stories and the crimes they solve. This episode centres on Joe and his family as suspects, victims and villains, what a read! And despite this book being number nine in the series it can just a...

    Very sad read. Not as much of a thriller as I hoped it would be, but very deep and thought provoking! I give this 3.6 Stars. ...

    I enjoy this author and this particular series. I enjoy his books so much, that I didn't mind parting with an audible credit in order to have this one. This was so close to 5 stars. Part of me just wants to round up. The hook at the beginning was highly effective. I loved when that...

    Robotham never fails to captivate and entertain me. Another gripping addition to a fantastic series. ...

    Michael Robotham is in a league of his own when it comes to thrillers. ...

    This is only the second Michael Robotham novel that I read. The Other Wife is the ninth novel in the series. Even though I haven't read any other O'Loughlin novels, my enjoyment wasn't at all diminished, as there was plenty of background information about the characters. Joe O'L...

    I was overjoyed that The Other Wife saw the return of one of my favourite characters in crime fiction, psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. After the tragic sudden death of his wife Julianne, Joe is trying hard to raise his two daughters on his own. But tragedy is not done with Joe yet ? he ...

    I just could not get into this book, so it's time to move on. ...

    Solid entry in the Joe O'Laughlin series revolving around a vicious attack on Joe's father and his encounter with a woman who claims to be the dad's wife...but who isn't Joe's mom. Very character driven with plenty of focus on how Joe and his kids are handling the unexpected death of h...

    Michael Robotham is one of my favourite authors. I couldn't wait to read his latest book, The Other Wife - especially when I found out it was a Joseph O'Loughlin book. (9th in the series) Joe is a clinical psychologist, a widower, a father to two girls, a man living with Parkinson's...

    First Sentence: From the top of Primrose Hill, silhouetted against the arriving day, the spires and domes of London look like the painted backdrop of a Pinewood sound stage waiting for actors to take their places and an unseen director to yell 'Action'. Psychologist Joe O'Laughlin ...

    3/97. Michael Robotham is definitely one of the best modern crime writers around today. I love the way he writes. His words are melancholic, soulful, melodious, nostalgic and downright bootiful at times. You?re held in a thrall by his stories, desperate to get to the end so you fi...

    16 months after the tragic conclusion of "Close Your Eyes" clinical psychologist Joe O'Laughlin is called to the hospital where his elderly father William is clinging to life after being brutally attacked. But just who is this strange woman sitting at his dad's bedside, covered in bloo...

    I?ve read several books in this series, but while reading The Other Wife I realized I had missed a few books in the series. I like to read books in a series in the order they are written, thank goodness this book could be read as a stand-alone. A very excellent book, and I did catch ...

    I enjoy this author and this particular series. I enjoy his books so much, that I didn't mind parting with an audible credit in order to have this one. This was so close to 5 stars. Part of me just wants to round up. The hook at the beginning was highly effective. I loved when that...

    Robotham never fails to captivate and entertain me. Another gripping addition to a fantastic series. ...

    Michael Robotham is in a league of his own when it comes to thrillers. ...

    This is only the second Michael Robotham novel that I read. The Other Wife is the ninth novel in the series. Even though I haven't read any other O'Loughlin novels, my enjoyment wasn't at all diminished, as there was plenty of background information about the characters. Joe O'L...

    I was overjoyed that The Other Wife saw the return of one of my favourite characters in crime fiction, psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. After the tragic sudden death of his wife Julianne, Joe is trying hard to raise his two daughters on his own. But tragedy is not done with Joe yet ? he ...

    I just could not get into this book, so it's time to move on. ...

    Solid entry in the Joe O'Laughlin series revolving around a vicious attack on Joe's father and his encounter with a woman who claims to be the dad's wife...but who isn't Joe's mom. Very character driven with plenty of focus on how Joe and his kids are handling the unexpected death of h...

    Michael Robotham is one of my favourite authors. I couldn't wait to read his latest book, The Other Wife - especially when I found out it was a Joseph O'Loughlin book. (9th in the series) Joe is a clinical psychologist, a widower, a father to two girls, a man living with Parkinson's...

    First Sentence: From the top of Primrose Hill, silhouetted against the arriving day, the spires and domes of London look like the painted backdrop of a Pinewood sound stage waiting for actors to take their places and an unseen director to yell 'Action'. Psychologist Joe O'Laughlin ...

    3/97. Michael Robotham is definitely one of the best modern crime writers around today. I love the way he writes. His words are melancholic, soulful, melodious, nostalgic and downright bootiful at times. You?re held in a thrall by his stories, desperate to get to the end so you fi...

    16 months after the tragic conclusion of "Close Your Eyes" clinical psychologist Joe O'Laughlin is called to the hospital where his elderly father William is clinging to life after being brutally attacked. But just who is this strange woman sitting at his dad's bedside, covered in bloo...

    *3.75-ish stars* Having discovered Michael Robotham?s writing last year?I obsessed over two of his standalones?and being a bit of a commitment-phobe when it comes to investing in a long-standing series, I decided to take a leap and start here, with book nine. The fact that I?...

    A very character driven series, and yes another series I have read from the beginning. Joseph is a pyschologist, one who works with those others have given up on. His life lately has been stressful, sad, as he now tackles single parenting after the death of his wife. He has had to lear...

    When Joe O?Loughlin received the call that his father was in a coma in hospital, his wife by his side, Joe had no idea the trip to the hospital and his father?s room would change his life, and everything he?d known and believed about his parents would be shattered. The woman besi...

    The awesomeness of Michael Robotham's writing is once again on display in this, the ninth Joe O?Loughlin book. If you?re a fan already, you will love this book. It offers a much closer look into Joe's personal life than ever before. This book can also be read as a stand alone becau...

    I read this from beginning to end in one sitting. I guess that's what you call unputdownable! Definitely five stars from me. Poor Joseph, still reeling from a very personal loss, still learning to cope with Parkinson's Disease, still dealing with raising two teenagers and now he fin...

    Poor old Joe O'Loughlin has a tough time being one of Michael Robotham's characters. He has to live with Mr Parkinson, the name he gives the horrible disease that is trying to take over his body. During his long and successful career as a psychologist working with his detective friend ...

    Imagine you get called to hospital because your father has serious injuries and is in a coma. You are told your mother is with him but when you get there it's a complete stranger who claims to be his second wife. What would you do if you where faced with this situation I wonder? I thi...

    I'm a huge huge fan of this series and the engaging beautifully drawn character of Joe O?Loughlin so I was very much looking forward to entering his world once again. This story hits very close to home when Joe discovers dark secrets lurk at the heart of his own family. Add murder...

    I did not realise that this was book 9 in the series. It read fine as a stand alone though and I really enjoyed it. Back to book one for me now !! ...

    I feel like Robotham of late has a simple formula for when he writes. The last 3 or 4 of his novels Ive read I've felt alot of similarities in the style and structure. This picks up #9 with Joe. Ive only read a couple others with this character but I had higher expectations. The first ...

    This is my 5th book by Michael Robotham and once again, I found I could not put it down. So many twists and turns, lies, and secrets throughout!!! Well done!! ...

    4.5 stars. I think I had a different book by this author on my to read list but one of my libraries had this recent release so I grabbed it. No. 9 in the Joseph O?Loughlin series apparently so I have dived in very late but it didn?t really matter, I think it was fine as a stand-al...

    I?ve read several books in this series, but while reading The Other Wife I realized I had missed a few books in the series. I like to read books in a series in the order they are written, thank goodness this book could be read as a stand-alone. A very excellent book, and I did catch ...

    I listen to talking books whilst cooking and/washing up so that?s just about every day. The best books for listening in this way need to have a narrative that grips and not be to complicated so that clatter and whistles, alarms, jets of steam don?t throw me off course - this is jus...

    This novel is gripping from the start! The more Joe investigates the further the fall from grace for his seemingly perfect parents, the twists are unpredictable and saw me reading long into the night. I also loved that the book wasn't entirely focused on the investigation you got to ex...
