I close my eyes and feel my heart begin racing. Someone is coming. They're going to find me.
A mother and her teenage daughter are found brutally murdered in a remote farmhouse, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other left lying like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her Prince. Reluctantly, clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, calling himself the Mindhunter, trading on Joe's name, has jeopardised the police inquiry by leaking details to the media and stirring up public anger.
With no shortage of suspects and tempers beginning to fray, Joe discovers links between these murders to a series of brutal attacks where the men and women are choked unconscious and the letter A is carved into their foreheads. As the case becomes ever more complex, nothing is quite what it seems, and soon Joe's fate, and the fates of those closest to him, become intertwined with a merciless, unpredictable killer....

Devastating, brilliant and thrilling
What can I say without revealing anything? As usual Sean Barrett narrated the story with empathy and brilliance - a remarkable performance. I usually listen while walking the dog and I was aware about half way through the book that I had stopped and was staring into space; not quite believing what I was hearing. I have read/listened to thousands of books and I am not sure that any of them affected me emotionally as much as this particular one. I have read better or cleverer literature with cunning plots or profound messages but this hit me hard. In fact it was so good that I waited until I had a quiet half hour alone in the house before listening to the end. Wow! Michael Robotham has surpassed himself with this one.
Well worth waiting for
