Publisher's Summary

Two couples. A doctor's surgery. A deadly obsession. Who's telling the truth?
'Who else would you go for, if you could? Give me a name, someone you quite like.'
He shrugs his shoulders. A jawline held tight.
'I quite like Jenni. What about you?'
I don't reply.
Carly and Rob, Jenni and Craig. Two couples, four friends. Betraying each other. Wanting each other.
All of them have access to prescription drugs through the medical practice where they work, and all of them are fighting their own demons.
But can any of them be trusted? And when the lies begin, can they ever be silenced?

Critic Reviews

"I absolutely loved it and raced through it. Thrilling, unputdownable, a fabulous rollercoaster of a read - I was obsessed by this book." (B. A. Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown)
" Obsession is a welcome addition to the domestic noir bookshelf. Robson explores marriage, jealousy and lust with brutal clarity, making for a taut thriller full of page-turning suspense." (Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths)
"Amanda Robson has some devastating turns of phrase up her sleeve and she expertly injects menace into the domestic. It was clear from the very first chapter that this was going to a dark and disturbing journey." (Holly Seddon, author of Try Not to Breathe)

Your old time religion

Got about 1/2 way through this book and I got sick of the good/bad girl crud. Of course “good girl is a sympathetic character while “bad girl” is decidedly a character you are supposed to see as flawed. It’s bad girl’s fault good girl’s husband cheats cause she is just to sexy and he can’t resist oh and good girl’s husband can’t help thinking of good girl while he’s having sex with bad girl. I don’t think so, the sex scenes are well done and the ones with bad girl and good girl’s husband make it obvious he is not thinking of his sainted wife. And of course good girl about God constantly. While bad girl asks questions like “If God is so kind, why is he so unkind.” Religious propaganda disguised as work of popular fiction.

This had to be written be a devout catholic who watches a lot of porn. Slut shaming abounds. Even the bad girl aunt, the black sheep in good girl’s family, is the black sheep because of “the way she is with men.” And the poor men they just can not help themselves. Excuse me while I vomit.

Here’s a news flash, it’s not 1955. The whole bad girl/good girl dichotomy was successfully challenged and most men and women have evolved beyond such stereotypes, but apparently not this author.

Just one more white lie....

I really enjoyed this book!! It was awesome, very different from a lot of thrillers I've read but very good none the less. Only thing was I'd wanted to know more about what had really happened, not quite enough detail into who what when where how that last tragic event truly unfolded!! You are kinda left to yourself to maybe figure that out ...anxious to read more from this author.

Don't waste your time

Positive - great narrators
Negative- long winded storyline that even as you get to the ending you're still left with questions.
Rubbish, confusing and don't waste your money

Weak plot, awful characters and terribly written!

I cannot understand how this has gotten so many good reviews. A mental breakdown thrown in with a bit of porn, religion and murder. A psychological thriller it is not. Save yourself a book credit and buy something else!

Grim

A Grim story. Fairly unbelievable. Wouldn't recommend . Narrator is fine certainly would not have stuck with it in a paper book!
