Joe O''Loughlin is in familiar territory-standing on a bridge high above a flooded gorge, trying to stop a distraught woman from jumping. "You don''t understand," she whispers, and lets go. Joe is haunted by his failure to save the woman, until her teenage daughter finds him and reveals that her mother would never have committed suicide-not like that. She was terrified of heights.
What could have driven her to commit such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil?
Having devoted his career to repairing damaged minds, Joe must now confront an adversary who tears them apart. With pitch-perfect dialogue, believable characters, and astonishingly unpredictable plot twists, "Shatter" is guaranteed to keep even the most avid thriller readers riveted long into the night.

Annotation:
A vigilante murderer is exploiting parental love, threatening to do unthinkable things to their children if their parents do not do what he wants--even if he asks them to kill themselves. Joe O'Loughlin, a likable psychologist and professor suffering from Parkinson's, is called in by the police to help track this psycho killer.

Praise

"Robotham sharpens the conventional horror with his unerring eye for psychological detail, his mastery of pace, and his spooky villain, a manipulator as monstrous as Hannibal Lector." (starred review) 01/15/2009

"Shatter is a gripping journey into the weaknesses and strengths of the human psyche, a story of humanity and inhumanity - and how one can become the other - and how depravation and cruelty can be the flip side of love." - Peter Millar 02/14/2008

"Structuring his story as a fascinating game of cat and mouse, Robotham tightens the screws until the reader is ready to beg for mercy. Shatter is psychological suspense at its finest." 03/29/2009
