Publisher's Summary

A naked woman is perched on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers, 'you don't understand,' and jumps. Later, Joe has a visitor - the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge - not only would she not commit suicide, she is terrified of heights. Joe wants to believe her, but what would drive a woman to such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil?

Never has evil been written of so well...

Shatter is the first book by Michael Robothan that I've come across and now I intend to read everything else he's ever written. Never has evil been described so well in a fictional suspense thriller. Carefully thought out, maticulously planned, every detail perfect in its chilling terribleness Robothan takes us deep in to a psychi that perhaps the author himself can't even begin to understand. The killer can unpick locks and unpick minds, he walks through walls, whispers in ears and makes those he comes in to contact with question everything they ever thought true. Brilliant, fear provoking and gripping from start to finish, this book will have you on the edge of your seat provoking feelings of fear, horror, frustration, anger, sadness and relief as the police and psychologist Joe McLochlan are drawn further and further in to the killers reign of terror, with unimaginable consequences.

Gripping listen, well worth a foray.

Excellent book,gripping from the start, well researched and luckily set in my home town so all the more familiar, however i can imagine that for someone not from bristol the amount of refs to local places etc, might be irritating. There were a few places belief had to be bent, but overall a really gripping, clever listen
