The Other Wife: The #1 Bestseller

Michael Robotham

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Joseph O'loughlin, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense

A secret wife. A secret life. A killer who knows.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE NED KELLY AWARD FOR BEST CRIME FICTION

A secret wife. A secret life. A killer who knows.

William and Mary have been married sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife.

William and Olivia have been together twenty years. Olivia was once a tennis star, but her career has long since faded.

Clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin knows only one of these stories to be true. But when he is called to his father's hospital bed after a brutal attack, everything he once knew is turned upside down.

Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

A confronting psychological thriller from one of the greatest crime writers of today, Michael Robotham, the bestselling author of THE SECRETS SHE KEEPS.
