Joe O'Loughlin is back with a pulse-stopping new case.

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 Marnie's birthday. It was supposed to be a celebration of her life. But it's not the story anyone was expecting. . .

Review:
I have just finished reading Watching You and I have to say that Michael Robotham does not like write like a guy who has written nine books. He is in his prime. Watching You grabs you from the first and leads you down a winding path. At every turn I thought I knew where I was heading but I was always wrong. He kept me guessing all the way to the thrilling climax. And even then he wasn't done. Great stuff. You'll be reading late into the night. Think Gone Girl meets Rebus and you're halfway there. John Purcell.

About the Author

Michael Robotham started his career as a journalist but then became a ghostwriter, writing many bestselling autobiographies in collaboration with politicians, pop stars, psychologists, adventurers and showbusiness personalities. His thrillers have been translated into twenty-two languages and he has twice won Australia's Ned Kelly Award for best crime novel. He was shortlisted for the CWA Steel Dagger in 2007 and 2008 and was also shortlisted for the inaugral ITV3 Thriller Awards.

              Great read, Robotham just keeps getting better. Always thrilling, good storyline and characters, suspense keeps you on edge. Not suitable for under 15 years. Don't be scared by the size of the book... read it in 3 days.
