Reviewsday: Watching You by Michael Robotham

9780751547245

Marnie Logan is a woman in trouble; a single mum with two children, a husband who has disappeared and left her indebted to the wrong people, and the constant feeling of being watched, followed. Feeling angry and abandoned, she turns to psychologist Joe O'Loughlin for help.

One day, Marnie discovers a book prepared by her husband Daniel for her upcoming birthday, with photos and interviews with past friends and family. While Marnie is ecstatic at finding hard proof that her husband did love her, she is unprepared for what Daniel discovered while contacting the people from her past. Anyone who ever became close with Marnie has paid a harsh price. And it appears Daniel finally caught up with this fate. Suddenly, that shadow out the corner of her eye, that tingling feeling of being watched, seems a lot more sinister and deadly.

This is the kind of novel you want to talk about with friends, and can't wait for them to finish so you can compare notes. As it is, I'm finding it hard to write this without giving anything away! Prepare yourself for a rollercoaster ride, with enough plot twists to keep you guessing right up to the end. Who has been secretly killing, threatening, and destroying lives for Marnie? And why?

Close Your Eyes by Michael Robotham

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 that of those closest to him, become intertwined with a merciless, unpredictable killer . . .
