Join a fast-paced riveting read as it explodes out of the blocks and is so readable, you can just sink into the pages and allow yourself to be consumed by the story. Police Officer and daughter of a gangster Philomena finds herself in trouble when she arrests a detective after being called to potential domestic abuse. Award-winning author Michael Robotham is a former investigative journalist working with clinical and forensic psychologists, and he knows how to make things feel real, to play with your thoughts and send them spiralling. The main character Phil narrates and feels on the edge of her own life, never quite fitting in. She is plunged into a world of pain and comes out fighting. I raised an eyebrow and became frustrated at some of her decisions, which shows just how invested I was in her. Some of the heavy-hitting topics range from domestic violence and revenge, to corruption within the old boys network, and they are contained within a thrilling and stimulating story with a whammy of an ending. When You Are Mine is a feisty, stimulating, and ultimately extremely satisfying read.
