Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Robotham creates fascinating characters and gives them wonderful dialogue. Harry Levins, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A pitch perfect plot with a stunning twist that involves a sheep in wolf's clothing. Talk about topsy turvy --- but it works --- big time. Steve Berry, author of The Lincoln Myth and The Jefferson Key
Robotham has a talent for creating fascinating and complex characters, and Audie Palmer may be his best yet. Booklist (starred review)
[A] prison-break tale with a twist . . . The writing is top-notch . . . Plenty of edge-of-the-seat excitement, forcing readers to frantically turn the pages to find out how all these different strands intersect. Robotham's skill as a writer remains undeniable: He offers memorable characters caught up in an irresistible story. Kirkus Reviews
Robotham is a first-class storyteller. Associated Press
Michael Robotham is the real deal. David Baldacci
Life or Death is 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. Stephen King
I love this guy's books. Try Life or Death and you'll see why. Lee Child
"Life or Death is 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.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“One of the best thrillers you will read this year.” Financial Times (London)
“Superbly exciting thriller…Beautifully written and full of poignancy.” Sunday Mirror (UK)
“Highly original…In a preface Robotham tells us this is ‘the book that I was meant to write.’ He could be right.” Literary Review
“An absolutely compelling story, with suspense ratcheting up to a deadly confrontation, combined with a deeply moving love story…Don’t miss this one.” Library Journal (starred review)
“John Chancer’s narration skills keep the bullets whizzing in this on-the-run audiobook thriller. Chancer’s modulation and timing add vocal drama to the action—whether it’s a prison break, hand-to-hand combat, a shoot-out, or someone being smacked with a shovel…The production is paced so that each cliff-hanger unravels just as the next one is revealed, guaranteeing that you won’t hit the pause button until the full story is told.” AudioFile
