really liked it

I once described reading crime fiction as, "The literary equivalent of putting on the slippers after wearing high heels all day and having that first cup of tea when you get home from work". Well this was truly a welcomed return to the comforts of reading a favourite genre, but what a sweet return. I loved the blend of the psychological thriller, the twists and the growing awareness of the entanglement of the central character Joe O'Loughlin. I liked the parallels of O'Loughlin's struggle over his body afflicted with Parkinsonism and the struggle to regain control over his own life. Even the somewhat cliched device of "the wrongly accused sets out to prove his innocence" was deftly handled, so much so that I paid it little regard. A fast paced and well written thriller. Now I'm a new fan of Michael Robotham and obviously I have some catching-up to do, but the tea is hot, I have my ugg boots on and I just can't wait!
