ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This is the follow up to the fabulous Good Girl Bad Girl, and follows the deepening friendship between criminal psychologist Cyrus Haven and the troubled Evie, and reveals more of their separate pasts. Cyrus in an attempt to help solve the mystery of Evie's identity, inadvertently alerts the men who have been trying to track her down. Evie knows things, and they aren't the sort of things that the men she's been hiding from want anyone else to know… As usual for a Robotham novel, there are twists and turns and clever writing, and you pick up the book thinking you'll just read a little bit and hours later emerge - totally addictive! Lindy Jones

He thinks the truth will set her free. She knows it will kill them. A heart-stopping psychological thriller from the Number One bestselling author of THE SECRETS SHE KEEPS and THE OTHER WIFE She has secrets.

Six years ago, Evie Cormac was found hiding in a secret room in the aftermath of a brutal murder. But nobody has ever discovered her real name or where she came from, because everybody who tries ends up dead.

He needs answers.

Forensic psychologist Cyrus Haven believes the truth will set Evie free. Ignoring her warnings, he begins to dig into her past, only to disturb a hornet's nest of corrupt and powerful people, who have been waiting to find Evie - the final witness they have been searching for. Unbeknownst to him, Cyrus is leading them straight to Evie. The truth will not set her free. It will get them killed.

From Australia's foremost crime writer, Michael Robotham, this is the second explosive novel featuring gifted criminal psychologist Cyrus Haven following the Edgar-award nominated GOOD GIRL, BAD GIRL.
