Michael Robotham

Hardcover $21.24 $24.99

When You Are Mine introduces us to a new character in Michael Robotham’s oeuvre, Philomena McCarthy. His prior novel, When She Was Good was a Barnes & Noble Monthly Pick for Mystery & Thriller. We said this before and we’ll say it again, Robotham elevates the police procedural to a whole other level. Characters don’t always reveal their true nature quickly in a Robotham novel. And that’s what we love: on our toes the whole suspenseful way.
