While every novel by Michael Robotham must be approached with caution, the ones featuring Joe O’Loughlin come with a special warning. That’s because O’Loughlin, a clinical psychologist who teaches at Bath University and serves as a consultant on difficult criminal cases, attracts such problematical clients … Robotham writes with grave tenderness about unhappy people caught in terrible situations.
Psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is straight out of the Wire In the Blood and Cracker school of troubled characters, eternally struggling with his own demons - not to mention the early onset of Parkinson's disease - while confronting the forces of good and evil … This is Robotham's sixth thriller and proves he's a British writer of the highest class who can create terror from the commonplace and crush the breath out of you.
Australian writer Michael Robotham has created another winning psychological thriller in Bleed For Me … One of the most entertaining and interesting things readers will find in Bleed for Me is following O’Loughlin’s inner thoughts and the way his mind works trying to figure out the psychology of the players. Michael Robotham’s style is pithy, and he leads readers on a foundation of high tension. When it comes to writing formidable mysteries, this man is at the top of his game. He is smart enough to write in such a way that you need not read his books in order.
