"Psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is being pushed away. His marriage is ending. Charlie, his eldest daughter, will barely speak to him. And Charlie's rebellious best friend Sienna is getting into more and more trouble, and taking Charlie along for the ride. Sienna has been almost like family to O'Loughlin-a troubled child who for years spent more time in the O'Loughlin residence than her own home. O'Loughlin's worst fears are confirmed when Sienna turns up at his front door, traumatized and covered in blood. The police find a major piece of the puzzle at Sienna's house: her father Ray Hegarty, a celebrated former police officer, murdered. The blood covering Sienna was her father's. She can't remember what happened, but, at the same time, doesn't mourn her father's death. O'Loughlin vows to unearth the dark secrets of Sienna's mind, hoping his efforts will win back the confidence of a daughter he may be in danger of losing forever. But as the accusations fly, the line between victim and accused begins to blur. When the detective in charge of the case seems all too eager to lay the blame at Sienna's feet rather than malign the honor of a respected former colleague, O'Loughlin begins to make his own inquiries. But each step he takes toward the truth also brings him closer to the path of a manipulative killer unlike anything he has ever encountered"-- Provided by publisher.

I read one of Robotham's books and like it & the characters. I've since read about 3 or 4 more and have not caught any 0f the same spark yet. I like the interactions of Joe & his family but all else is not that appealing to me.

Michael Robotham is one of my favorite authors. He never disappoints me. You really should start with his first book. The characters keep developing as each book comes out.

A good read. Had to concentrate to keep up with all the characters. The author had a way of showing how easy it is for teens, especially troubled teens, to fall under the influence of people of authority, such as teachers. Evil lurking in the classrooms is a scary realization. Anyone liking thrillers will enjoy this book.
