Editorial Reviews

Review

"Never-lets-up suspense and beautiful writing."—Stephen King (Best Books of 2012 pick)

"Piper Hadley tells her story with the urgency of a modern-day Scheherazade....an uncanny approximation....Robotham is a writer of many voices, sounding exactly like a spoiled teenaged girl one minute and, in the next breath, exactly like a frustrated parent."—Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"Suspenseful and intriguing."—People

"Chilling."—Entertainment Weekly

"Subtle, smart, compelling and blessed with both an intelligent storyline and top-notch writing, this book will grab readers from page one and not let go until the final sentence."—Kirkus Reviews (a Fall Fiction Top Ten Pick)

Praise for Michael Robotham:

"Remarkable....crime fiction of the highest order."—Booklist, starred review

"Michael Robotham is the real deal and we can only hope that will write faster."—David Baldacci, on The Wreckage

After the disappointment of my last crime read it was heartening to seek sanctuary in the criminal bosom of Michael Robotham. Robotham is a firm favourite of mine and once again provides a fine lesson in the craft of crime fiction with an utterly absorbing read. Drawing closely on real-life incidences of child abduction Robotham weaves a compelling tale focusing on the case of two missing teenage girls and the changing public perceptions of the both the case and the two as individuals under the glare of media scrutiny and the heightened sense of purpose the police investigation gains when one of the girls turns up dead. Once again clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is called to assist in this troubling case and with the help of retired policeman Vincent Ruiz, seeks to determine the whereabouts of the remaining missing girl. The plot is taut and throws up many a quandary for our loveable duo as the investigation unfolds in different directions but what this book highlights more than most is Robotham's consistently great characterisation.

This was particularly noticeable in Robotham's portrayal of Piper Hadley a sporty and slightly ungainly teenager but who during her enforced incarceration is revealed as a very perceptive and thoughtful girl grappling mentally and physically with the challenges of the danger she finds herself in. The sections of the book where she narrates her day-to-day suffering at the hands of her abductor are truly moving and incredibly well-realised. I liked the way that her experiences are offset by the traumas caused by Joe's own teenage daughter Charlie as she navigates her way through these difficult years, at times to the chagrin of her father, as she herself has been held captive in a previous criminal investigation involving Joe.

Firstly WOW!

This was my first Michael Robotham book i've read and I must say, he is now my favourite author. This story is nothing less than fantastic. He had me hooked from the first paragrah, and I was unable to put this book down. Lets just say I had the novel finished the same day I purchased it.

I have seen a lot of people comment that it is too expensive and that's what I thought at first too, but I'm happy I spent the money on it because it was worth every cent!

The characters were not only realistic but I found myself swept up in their problems and I was concerned for them and genuinely interested in their lives.

I must say, as soon as I finished this story, I went in search of this author's other novels. Will definately be reading more from him, but I'm glad I started with this story. This novel is great for anyone who likes to be kept on their toes.

GREAT WORK MICHAEL ROBOTHAM!!! (My new favourite Author!!!)

I've long been a Michael Robotham fan and eagerly await each new book. Say You're Sorry is absolutely his best yet. I've always enjoyed the character development in Robotham's novels and this doesn't disappoint, giving us more than a peek into the soul of Joe O'Loughlin, the teenager Piper and her friend Tash, and even that of the grieving parents. The story begins with two apparently separate crimes--a dead woman found frozen in a pond/river and the murder of a couple in a remote farmhouse. How does a cold case disappearance link to a current murder? Little by little the pieces are fitted together to link the crimes, all while the protagonist deals with personal issues ( marital estrangement, a rebellious teenage daughter, his worsening Parkinson's disease). I would have liked to have more involvement of O'Loughlin's sidekick Victor Ruiz and a bit of an epilogue about Emily and her controlling father, but these are minor quibbles. I love intelligent mysteries that keep me guessing to the end and this fit the bill. Although I had narrowed my suspicions down to two (and turned out to be right) it was the journey, the getting to that conclusion that held me spellbound. If you are a fan of the intellectual mystery ala Elizabeth George or the Laura Lippman stand alones, you will enjoy the entire O'Loughlin series, but possibly this one most of all

Say You're Sorry begins well, swells well in the middle and then becomes a tad too predictable. And the increasingly creaky lead character becomes more and more capable of incredible heroics the worse he gets. Robotham peaked with Shatter and has not managed to top that as a tale, despite maintaining the relationship with the characters. The hero is smart as we know - but this time around seemed a bit too big for his boots. No one is that smart. Any police force worth their salt would have punted him from these investigations. He doesn't appear to warrant a part in them at all. He used to be believable and vulnerable. I felt here he was almost super human. A nice read, don't get me wrong, but not as strong as previous outings.

"Say you're sorry" is a gripping story in more ways than one. It's a very exciting thriller that keeps you on edge right until the end. Robotham's style has definitely evolved and you can see he has honed his already considerable skills to a point where he leaves you with a utterly absorbing and believable story.
On another level "Say you're sorry" is a story about children's hopes and dreams confronted with (mis)trust, prejudice and selfishness. Robotham does a very clever job at making the (abducted) girls' minds as genuine as the adults'. I couldn't help wondering if his experience with growing up children gave him some insights.
Being the next in the series featuring Joe O'Loughlin, it's good to see him back on track, rubbing shoulders with Vincent Ruiz once again and wondering where his family life is heading. Don't worry, you'll know more when you've finished the book.
So, a must-read for those already familiar with the series, but if you are not, you're still in for a hell of a ride.

Finally, I would like to make a remark about some of the "reviews" that are posted here. Apparently some people are dissatisfied with the Kindle concept and the price of the e-books. Fine, send a mail to Amazon. But what the point is of giving a single book a 1 star "review" if you haven't even read it, just to gripe about Kindle, is really beyond me. It lowers the average rating in a big way, for no reason whatsoever. A bit of moderating would do wonders.
