Bleed for Me, by Michael Robotham
You can't beat Robotham: a fabulous cast of characters who each offers something vital to the mix, and a complex and compelling storyline. Psychologist Joe O'Loughlin; his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Julianne; and his slowly recovering daughter, Charlie, make my heart ache. PI Vincent Ruiz and DCI Ronnie Kray add some lightness, humor and irreverence to the tone of the book. The bad guys are horribly, creepily bad, and the interweaving of the several plots might be far fetched, but didn't seem so at the time.
