The Suspect - Michael Robotham (2004)
It's always nice to find a new to me author, that always has a series of books all ready to read. So instead of starting the latest book, I started back at the beginning with this, the first book about Joseph O'Loughlin a clinical psychologist, who is married with a young daughter. Dealing with a new health diagnosis, he is called in to provide information in a recent murder inquiry.
Realising that he knows the victim, the police become suspiscious that he may be involved in the case and of course things begin to unravel at a rapid rate.
You could see where things were heading in this novel, but the author did a good job of keeping the pace up throughout, which made me enjoy it without becoming bored.
