Life or Death in March

March 2015 has so far been an eventful month for ex-investigative journalist and bestselling author Michael Robotham.

With his novels already translated into over twenty languages, the paperback of Watching You has now hit the top half of Germany's Der Spiegel list (Random House Germany). The German language TV adaptation of The Suspect premiered at Munich Film Festival in July 2014 with the second novel, Lost, to finish filming this year.

Michael has just delivered his new novel, Close Your Eyes, the seventh book in the series featuring psychiatrist and offender profiler Joe O'Loughlin (Little Brown, 6th August 2015), and, on top of all of this, his breakout standalone epic, Life or Death, has just been released in the US to rave reviews (Mulholland, 10th March 2015).

Stephen King
"A nerve-shredding thriller with the heart and soul so often missing from lesser crime and suspense novels. I couldn't stop reading, yet I didn't want Audie's story to end. Robotham is an absolute master... a wonderful writer... His Texas is so real you can taste the dust."

The Dallas Morning News
"It has one of the great plots of the year... constantly unfolding and fabulously revelatory. It reads so smoothly it will make you forget about any turbulence you may encounter while aloft or about the traffic outside your minivan in the carpool lane. This is a great chase novel. We should celebrate it."

And we do.
