A bullet in the leg, another through the hand, he is discovered clinging to a buoy in the River Thames, losing blood and consciousness fast.

What the Critics Say

"A thoughtful and subtle thriller, with convincing, three-dimensional characters." (Publishers Weekly)
"In addition to delivering top-notch pacing, plot, and characters...Robotham also understands that some quests are worth any sacrifice no matter how long the odds of success may be." (Booklist)
"Ray Lonnen's delivery is full of a snap that reflects both Ruiz's regrets as husband, father, and police officer, and his contempt for his superiors' anger when he raises doubts over a case they would prefer remain closed. Those who relish earthy accents from London's most hardscrabble sections will find plenty of entertainment in Lonnen's performance." (AudioFile)

Lost - Ticks my boxes

I have only recently discovered Michael Robotham and what a great find. All of his books have left me gripped to the end. This one in particular is centred around the loveable cop Vincent Ruiz with walk on parts from characters in the previous book.

I have now worked my way through all but 1 of Robotham's books and will certainly keep an eye out for anything new from this author in the future.

a different perspective

I've only recently discovered Michael Robotham and I'm thrilled that I did. I've listened to them out of sequence but that hasn't spoilt the individual books at all. The others are written from the viewpoint of the psychologist but this one is from Vincent Ruiz's standpoint which was a lovely and interesting change. Like all his other books, this storyline is convoluted yet believable. Each time I thought I had it, things twisted and changed. And I did enjoy the irony of the punishment meted out to the main protagonist at the end. Its also the first time I've listened to Ray Lonnen and I will be quite happy to listen to him again - an excellent narrator who switches very easily from one character to another without any confusion about who's speaking.
