The Other Wife (Joseph O'Loughlin #9) Reviews
I did not realise that this was book 9 in the series. It read fine as a stand alone though and I really enjoyed it. Back to book one for me now !!
I had never discovered Michael Robotham before but I intend to make good this gap in my reading repertoire.
The man can certainly write and create a dazzling plot that intrigued me from the beginning.
Apparently this is the month book in a series but I was able to read it as a standalone without thinking that I had missed anything.
Beautifully written with well-drawn characters, this is a high class psychological thriller that both thrills and entertains in equal measures.
I was introduced to Michael Robotham through ‘The Secrets She Keeps’ but The Other Wife is the first of the Joseph O’Loughlin books that I’ve read. In this, the 9th in the series, we see Joe, a clinical psychologist by trade, turning his hand to investigating - his father has been attacked, left for dead, is in a coma and the police are not coming ‘up to snuff’.
This instalment feels personal, there are lots of flashbacks to childhood which fleshes out the characters really well. Joe’s world star ...more

I'm a huge huge fan of this series and the engaging beautifully drawn character of Joe O’Loughlin so I was very much looking forward to entering his world once again.
This story hits very close to home when Joe discovers dark secrets lurk at the heart of his own family. Add murder into the mix and you have a tense, addictive psychological thriller that explores the deeper truths hiding behind every family facade.
Michael Robotham twists a plot so beautifully, The Other Wife is immediately engaging ...more
#TheOtherWife #NetGalley This was an easy book to read with lots going on and a great psychological thriller. I enjoyed seeing how the relationship between Joseph and his mother and sisters developed between Olivia and her family. Although it did seem a bit unreal that the police gave so much leeway to Olivia who at best was the 'wife' of a bigamist and I found it strange that Joseph took to her quite so quickly . Great side issues to keep up the interest such as Bethany and Ray and the Passage' ...more
