Publisher's Summary

She's standing at the front door. Covered in blood. Is she the victim of a crime? Or the perpetrator?
A teenage girl - Sienna, a troubled friend of his daughter - comes to Joe O'Loughlin's door one night. She is terrorized, incoherent-and covered in blood. The police find Sienna's father, a celebrated former cop, murdered in the home he shared with Sienna. Tests confirm that it's his blood on Sienna. She says she remembers nothing.
Joe O'Loughlin is a psychologist with troubles of his own. His marriage is coming to an end and his daughter will barely speak to him. He tries to help Sienna, hoping that if he succeeds it will win back his daughter's affection. But Sienna is unreachable, unable to mourn her father's death or to explain it.
Investigators take aim at Sienna. O'Loughlin senses something different is happening, something subterranean and terrifying to Sienna. It may be something in her mind. Or it may be something real. Someone real. Someone capable of the most grim and gruesome murder, and willing to kill again if anyone gets too close.
His newest thriller is further evidence that Michael Robotham is, as David Baldacci has said, "the real deal - we only hope he will write faster."


What the Critics Say

"This remarkable novel offers everything those 'literary' detective novelsought to but usually don't. This is crime fiction of the highest order." (Booklist)
"A taut thriller....O'Loughlin continues to be an appealingly flawed hero." (Publishers Weekly)
"One of the best novels to come out of the chaos of Iraq; a penetrating peek through the fog of war." (Nelson DeMille)

Wait, WHAT??

I was really enjoying the performance and story, eager to hear more each day when I reached "the end of a part but not the end of the audio book." When Part 2 unfolded, however, I thought I had skipped to a completely different story and had to double check I was still listening to "Bleed For Me." Not wanting to give anything away, I'll just say the characters seemed to take a U-turn and behave as if they were different people. Things got confusing and, for me, the novel no longer had the verisimilitude to keep me listening.
