Great plot this book kept a steady pace throughout the story. I would recomend this to anyone who likes a great 'who done it' mystery. It definately keeps you guessing.

This book was like a train, slow to start but once it gets a full head of steam it is hard to stop. A very good read and very unpredictable.

Michael Robotham was unknown to me until I read this book. this was a book that I considered very well done. The characters are believable. The book was enjoyable and kept you reading until the end. I consider it a very good read. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

I really liked this book. Sometimes the references in English novels can be obscure to an America, but not so with this book. Character development was good and the the plot was engrossing. I'd read him again.

Definitely found this book to be a page-turner and I'll have to admit, I was caught off guard in the end --- didn't guess it. Hope to hear more from Michael Robotham in the mystery category --- great job!

It took me a couple chapters to get going, but after that, I just couldn't stop reading. The plot twisted and I really wasn't sure who did it, but the end was shocking.

The book I admit starts out a little slow. But when it picks up, you won't be able to put it down. It doesn't end like you'll think. A must read!!

Michael Robotham  uses suspense to get his reader to be engaged in each chapter of the novel, making the reader what to continue flipping through every flawless page. Although there is a lot of suspense, it is evenly distributed and does not allow for the some chapters to move at a faster pace than others.   Each character changes dramatically throughout the book, making it difficult for the reader to expect the ending. In which case all the character development draws a bigger sense of realism to this novel and its characters within.  While the book is broken into three novels, the beginning of each novel is started off with a quote that foreshadows what the theme of the follow novel will be. For example novel two starts (the literal name) out with "We are often criminals in the eyes of the earth, not only for having committed crimes, but because we know what crimes have been committed" ( Man in the Iron Mask).  While you do not hear much about Professor O'Loughlins daughter, she has a large role in the end of the novel, being the character is getting picked on by our lead suspect.  "We are playing a game of WHO AM I?" She explains. "D.J. had to guess he was Homer Simpson. What did he choose for me?' She lifts her face to mine. The notes is curling at the edges, but I recognize the small , neat block print. YOU'RE DEAD.This is the at the very end of the book when everything you have been expecting the main suspect completely changes  again. I would  compare this novel to any of the Stephen King books, they are closely related in theme, although Stephan King has a different style of writing. Michael Robotham uses his own style to make himself a writer to look out for in the future.
