A secret wife. A secret life. A killer who knows. The new bestseller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until its shocking climax, by multi-million-copy selling author Michael Robotham.

William and Mary have been married sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both are strong believers in right and wrong.

William and Olivia have been together twenty years. Olivia was once a tennis star, but her career has long since faded.

Clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin knows only one of these stories to be true. But when he is called to his father's hospital bed after a brutal attack, everything he once knew is turned upside down. Is it possible his father, the upstanding citizen, was leading a double life?

And who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

A confronting psychological thriller from one of the greatest crime writers of today, Michael Robotham, the bestselling author of The Secrets She Keeps.

Staff Review
by John Purcell

When Michael Robotham won the prestigious Gold Dagger Award for his novel Life or Death the world discovered something many of us already knew, Robotham is one of the finest crime novelists on the planet. Whether writing standalone novels or novels centered on his recurring character, clinical psychologist Joe O’Loughlin, Robotham grips the reader from the first page to the last.

Robotham’s new novel, The Other Wife stars Joe O’Loughlin and, in my opinion, is his best book yet. I just did not want to stop reading. So when life got in the way, and I had to put the novel down, my mind returned to the story and I found excuses to pick it up again.

The thing about Robotham is that he writes fast moving, page turning thrillers while somehow managing to retain the rich characterisation he’s now famous for. We know all of his characters so well, whether they are main characters or walk on roles. Joe’s daughters are wonderful creations and his struggle to look after them in trying times is very relatable.

The Other Wife is an incredibly complex story, one which cannot be easily summarized without giving too much away. So I won’t try. However, I will say that Joe’s whole family are deeply involved in this story and nothing Joe has ever known will be the same again. This is a game changer novel that is guaranteed to please longtime fans, but would also serve as a great introduction to Joe O’Loughlin for new readers.

The beauty of this series is that the novels can be read with enjoyment in any order. I certainly haven’t played by the rules when reading them. These books are so rewarding in and of themselves. The only mark against The Other Wife that I can think of is the suggestion in the Afterword that this might be the last Joe O’Loughlin novel.

Say it ain’t so, Michael, say it ain’t so!
