What I’m Reading: Bleed for Me
I just finished the audio book Bleed for Me (Joseph O’Loughlin) by Michael Robotham. I grabbed this book as I really liked a book had previously read by this author, The Secrets She Keeps: A Novel.
I enjoy cop/suspense books…and this one was really good. If you’re an audio book listener, you know that a reader can make or break a book. This one adds to it. I was a little sad to find that this is the 4th book in a series. Sadly my online library doesn’t have the other ones!! I took the time and requested some of the other offerings. Hopefully they will add them to the collection and I won’t have to burn some Audible credits to get them!! I think they would be worth it though.
When writing this review I also discovered that I had read Say You’re Sorry (Joe O’Loughlin). So far, not a dud book in the bunch.
Here’s what Amazon has to say:“When Sienna Hegarty, a troubled friend of his daughter, comes to Joe O’Loughlin’s door terrorized, incoherent, and covered in blood, he vows to unearth the dark secrets her mind has buried. The police find a major piece of the puzzle at Sienna’s house: her father, a retired cop, murdered.
Tests confirm that it’s Mr. Herharty’s blood on Sienna. She says she remembers nothing. 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.”
Amazon readers gave the book 4.4 stars. I think I’d go with 4.6. I am going to be on a watch to try to get the other books. I’m trying to be patient to see if the on line library might add a couple of them before I have to use a credit. We’ll see if I can be that patient!! If you’re looking for a new cop series…this one might be a good one to start. The first book in this series is The Suspect (Joseph O’Loughlin). I do have to say that I didn’t read this book in order and didn’t feel like I was out of the loop.
