Joseph O'Loughlin appears to have the perfect life - a beautiful wife, a loving daughter and a successful career as a clinical psychologist. But nothing can be taken for granted. Even the most flawless existence is only a loose thread away from unravelling. All it takes is a murdered girl, a troubled young patient and the biggest lie of his life. Caught in a complex web of deceit and haunted by images of the slain girl, he embarks upon a search that will take him from London to Liverpool and into the darkest recesses of the human mind. Ultimately, he will risk everything to unmask the killer and save his family.

Reviews

There are twists and turns in this plot enough to challenge most thriller readers . . . By the time I neared the end, I was so caught up in the story that I blundered straight past all the subtle hints for the final twist.

this story points out how very badly the child 'protection' powers that be can screw things up and turn nothing into something very big, destroying lives that can never be brought back again. What happens when a man is framed and his son questioned beyond endurance....? When 'the system' listens to one parent - and her side of the family, but does not listen to the other? A warped perception of reality that destroys the childs life, and ultimately the lives of all those who did him wrong. A woman is just as capable of abuse as a man. This is a real page turner, from begining to end - not as fast paced as 'bombproof', but this has more mystery and intrique.
