The Other Wife

The Other Wife

by Michael Robotham

Overview: Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong. This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?

Against the advice of the police, Joe launches his own investigation. As he learns more, he discovers sides to his father he never knew - and is forcibly reminded that the truth comes at a price.

Debbie Weiss (08/11/19): Joe O'Loughlin is a widower with 3 daughters. His father is a famous surgeon, well respected in the medical community. His parents have been married for 60 years and though his father has never been a demonstrative parent, the family is no different than another other family.

When Joe gets a call that his father is in the hospital in a medically-induced coma, his life begins to unravel. Who is the woman sitting by his father's bed when he arrives at the hospital? What caused his father's injuries to his head? They say he fell down the stairs, but the symptoms suggest that he was brutally hit over his head. Joe begins to investigate on his own and what he uncovers is not what one would expect. At each step, a new strange fact emerges, twisting and turning to the truth.

This is an excellent book that I really recommend.
