Goodreads asked Michael Robotham:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Michael Robotham The idea for LIFE OR DEATH came from a single paragraph in a newspaper almost 20 years ago about a prisoner who escaped from jail on the eve of his expected release. I remember asking myself, 'Why?'
It took me about ten years to come up with an answer and another ten years before I felt I had the skills to write the story.
