Unlike the others who have reviewed this book so far, I thought it was just 'okay'. One of the ways I know I really like a book is when I can hardly wait to get back to it. With this book, it became somewhat of a chore to finish it. On the more positive side, I did finish it and I'm glad I did....it just wasn't great. I'm not sure if it was the writing style or the characters but whatever it was it didn't blow me away like it did the others who've reviewed it.

From the moment Detective Inspector Vincent Ruiz was fished out of the Thames he knew he was in trouble as he has no memory how he got there or how he was shot in the leg. Adding to his woes is that a drifting nearby boat contains his blood and that of three other people. --- The Met¿s Anti-Corruption Group, fondly disdained by other cops as the Ghost Squad, John Keebal assumes that Ruiz is using amnesia to cover up wrong doing including murder and plans to break the DI. Meanwhile friend clinical psychologist Professor Joseph O'Loughlin shows Ruiz a picture of seven years old Mickey Carlyle that the beleaguered cop had on him Mickey, daughter of Russian crime lord Aleksei Kuznet, was kidnapped three years ago and general wisdom is she is dead, but the amnesiac thinks otherwise. Though still injured, Ruiz and his partner, Detective Constable Alisha ¿Ali¿ Kauer Barba, begin to retrace what he LOST. --- This powerful gritty police procedural grips the audience from the moment that Ruiz introduces Maggie the nurse to Johnnie One-Eye in the hospital and never slows down as he tracks his path with his Sikh partner to two diverse nasty scenarios. The investigative story line is dark and gloomy though superbly written with a shrewd counterpace in the hero¿s personal relationships with for instance his friendship with Joe, a Parkinson¿s victim. The return of some of the cast including Joe and Vincent from SUSPECT add to the fun time readers will have with this taut thriller. --- Harriet Klausner

This is the second book in the Joe O'loughlin Series. Joe is a psychologist with very intense observation abilities. Ironically, Joe is not the main character of this series, but rather a sidekick of sorts to the main character. This book was much better than the first book in the series and quite well plotted. The mystery being compounded by the main character, Detective Ruiz, losing their memory after a critical experience to the story. So we have a detective having to recreate an especially traumatic night during which he was shot in the leg and ended up in the river while trying to decide if a missing girl is actually dead or alive, all while trying not to screw up the case that has already been won against a man convicted of kidnapping and killing the girl 3 years prior. I say kudo's to the author on this one. It was quite well thought out and the characters while not always wonderful humans, were very well developed and likable. I'm quite curious to see where the next book in the series takes us.

This is the fifth book I have read by this author and I have NO idea what happened. It's like it was written by someone else--how did he manage to get so many stupid cliches into one book? If it were the first book of his I read I would definitely have stopped there. It was a total chore to finish this; if I hadn't paid for it on my Nook I would have stopped after the first chapter. I wish I could email the author and tell him to never again attempt whatever he was doing here. Total disaster.

The series is great. I don't know what you call this genre but it's addictive. I've read a few books with this odd writing style but you don't find them too often. Number 1 was the best, number 2 was great, and i'm just finishing number 3 and it's fantastic. I think there are 7 in the series and I plan on buying them all. You need to read them in order. If you want to try a different writing style, like you are actually living with the characters, try this series. Since they are around $10.00 each, I wish they were "lend me" books so I could share with a friend. You will love them, enjoy.

This was a great book. It kept you wondering what was about to happen and trying to guess the end. I don't think you'll guess the end as it is a complete shock. Awesome suspenseful, book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will be buying Suspect next. Well written, fast-paced, involving and intriguing, this story was entertaining and worth the ride.
