The crime writer tells Chris High about his new standalone

Michael Robotham gives his Parkinsons-affected psychologist Joe O’Loughlin a break for his thirteenth novel, The Secrets She Keeps. But rest assured, Michael’s fourth standalone – and his first new novel in two years – is a more than acceptable stopgap.

The Secrets She Keeps is a work of powerful psychological drama that will have you aching for its protagonists, in the lonely worlds each inhabits. The tale is told, in alternate chapters, from the viewpoints of Meghan and Agatha, one a successful blogger-wife of a flourishing television personality, the other a single woman with a dream. The two women from different backgrounds have one thing in common, a dangerous secret that could destroy everything they hold dear. An emotionally difficult read in places, it turns out the novel was also pretty difficult to write.
