Book Review - Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin #6) by by Michael Robotham

Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin #6)


Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin #6) by by Michael Robotham

From Goodreads:

TWO MISSING GIRLS. TWO BRUTAL MURDERS. ALL CONNECTED TO ONE FARM HOUSE. WHO IS TO BLAME?

When pretty and popular teenagers Piper Hadley and Tash McBain disappear one Sunday morning, the investigation captivates a nation but the girls are never found.

Three years later, during the worst blizzard in a century, a husband and wife are brutally killed in the farmhouse where Tash McBain once lived. A suspect is in custody, a troubled young man who can hear voices and claims that he saw a girl that night being chased by a snowman.

Convinced that Piper or Tash might still be alive, clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin and ex-cop Vincent Ruiz, persuade the police to re-open the investigation. But they are racing against time to save the girls from someone with an evil, calculating and twisted mind...

 

Even though this is Book #6 in the series, I haven't read anything by this author before, and I didn't feel like I missed out on not reading #1-5 first. I think I found this book from other bloggers. I used to track better where I "discovered" the book, but that had become too much work... so sorry for not giving credit where credit was due!

The story alternated between clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin and Piper. I liked it - I liked Joe as a main lead - he's observant and analytical (my type!) and I liked how the story was told. 

I was able to guess the bad guy though (well either this person, or this other person lol) but I think when you read a lot of genre, you just couldn't help yourself but guess who dunnit. 

3.5 Stars.

Note - The book was borrowed from the library.

  1. I enjoy the trying to guess who dunnit too and am not upset when I do.

    What do you use to save want to read books? I use LibraryThing and I find it most useful, I put where I saw the book there.

    1. I usually use Goodreads to do a 'want to read' - I think there's a way to leave a comment there, but usually I am too lazy since that's an extra step, so I just click "want to read" instead of having to open up another window... I used to keep a spreadsheet on the books I want to read, and where I hear that from, so that when I write my review I can refer back to that... but again, too lazy to do that now...

      I am usually not too upset if I don't get it right, in fact, I usually like it if I am wrong, just so I could be surprised! But the author totally have the power to control how much s/he wants us to know :)
