I promise that I will be back next week with some actual creative contact. I'm busily working on the Christmas cards and today I'm teaching a friend how to make soap. today I'm going to tell you about a new-to-me book series.
When I purchase my audiobooks I buy and download at least 14 at a time and then listen to them in the order they are listed in my MP3 player. Sometimes I don't remember what the book was about and that's the case with this one. I'm pretty sure I meant to buy another book but this surprise worked out well.
Suspect by Michael Robotham is the first in a series and you know I love a good series! This book was published in 2007 so you may be way ahead of me on discovering this author and series.
Here's the publisher's summary:
After a woman is brutally slain, investigators bring psychiatrist Joe O'Loughlin in for expert consultation. Joe is shocked to discover the dead woman is a former patient of his who cried rape when he rebuffed her sexual advances. Citing doctor/patient confidentiality, Joe hides this information. But the truth emerges, and suddenly he is the prime suspect.
There were some parts of the book where Joe did something that I felt would be out of character for someone in his situation but the book had lots of twists and turns and kept me intrigued until the very end. The story line was a surprise which is good. You figure out kind of early the who but the why takes time to unfold. I thought it was a very clever plot and he saves a surprise twist for the very end.
It's good that there are more books in the series because after this book Joe O'Loughlin has a lot of work to get his personal life back together after the drama of Suspect.
There's nothing that makes a good audio book better than a good narrator and Simon Prebble is excellent. Sometimes when I can't seem to find good books to read I'll search by narrator (a great feature of Audible) and Simon Prebble has narrated almost 300 books so I'll have lots to choose from.
