At forty-two, psychiatrist Joe O'Loughlin seems to have it all: a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, an adoring daughter. But Joe's snug, happy world is crumbling. Recently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, he's dreading the inevitable and all too palpable deterioration of his body and mind. Then, when the police ask for his help in solving the brutal murder of a woman they assume is a prostitute, he's horrified to recognize the victim as a nurse he once worked with, and with whom he had a bit of a past. As Joe begins to suspect that one of his patients may be responsible, the police zero in on him. Michael Robotham possesses the rare ability to create fully believable characters, fashion terrific dialogue, and generate nonstop suspense.Suspectis a powerhouse first novel, intricately crafted and chillingly authentic.

This is the 2nd book I have tried of Michael Robotham. This one featured a psychologist, who also has just found out he has Parkinson's disease. Naturally he is married & doesn't know how to communicate with his loved ones. This makes him another flawed hero. Naturally one of his clients frames him for murder because he hates him & wants revenge. He is the only one who see's this set up & sets forth to prove his innocence.

Very good series featuring clinical psychologist Joe O'Laughlin. He is very bright and likable, and recently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Opl does not have all the books in the series but you can order "LOST" through the interlibrary loan department.
