Waiting on Wednesday - The Other Wife



I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays.  These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to.  I'll be linking up to 'Can't-Wait Wednesday' hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.

I've read several books in the series featuring clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin.  He has major health problems, but he also solves crimes.  I'm really excited about the 9th book in this series - a story that is very personal to Joe.  This week, I'm waiting on:




Publication Date:  June 26th

Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong.

This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

Against the advice of the police, Joe launches his own investigation. As he learns more, he discovers sides to his father he never knew - and is forcibly reminded that the truth comes at a price.

  5. Sounds great! I don't know how I missed this series. There's a remedy for that--I just placed the first book (The Suspect) on hold at the library.

    1. Oh, this is a great series, Catherine. The protagonist has Parkinson's and so he has challenges, but I like how he thinks.

  6. Michael Robotham is another of my can't miss authors. Enjoy the heck out of everything he writes. After the heartbreak of Close Your Eyes I can't wait to see how Joe is getting on. And his relationship with his father has always been a bit strained so looking forward to where this goes.

  12. Oh this sounds really good. I feel like I've read something by this author but I didn't think it was part of a series. I'll have to go check my shelves!

    1. Me, too, Lark. Joe certainly has challenges, but he's a good thinker and solver.

  16. This sounds really good. The series is a new one to me, but I have at least heard of this author.

    1. It's a good series and has been around for a bit. The protagonist has Parkinson's and so that complicates his life a bit or more than a bit.

  17. I've read a few of Michael Robotham's books and enjoyed them. I have at least one on my TBR pile still to read. This one sounds good too!

  18. I checked out the first book in this series a number of months ago, but I didn't get around to reading it before it came due. Sounds like a re-check out is needed!
