Publisher's Summary

"She lifted the flap of the envelope and pulled out the single white page. As she opened it up she stared, open mouthed. Four words were typed on the page. I am watching you."

When Amy Whyte and Penny Brogan leave a local nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning and don’t arrive home, their families are beside themselves with worry. Conor Dowling has just been released from prison, a man full of hatred for Amy, the girl who put him behind bars in the first place.

The case is given to Detective Lottie Parker when the girls’ blood-soaked bodies are found, days later, in a derelict squat. Chillingly, both girls are clutching silver coins in their hands - what message is this killer leaving behind? All the signs point to Conor, but his alibi is watertight.

As Lottie examines Penny and Amy’s final days alive in a desperate search for clues, two more girls are found stabbed to death in a luxury apartment complex. Caught up in what is fast becoming her toughest case yet, Lottie is unaware that somebody is watching her every move.

Then Lottie’s two daughters, Katie and Chloe, suddenly disappear from the town centre. Terrified that the killer has her girls, the stakes have never been higher for Lottie.

But as Lottie puts everything on the line to find her daughters and solve the case, she’s about to find herself in terrible danger - someone has a personal ax to grind with her, and they know the best way to get to her is to hurt the ones she loves the most.

If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni, and Rachel Abbott, you’ll be hooked by this heart-stopping thriller from Patricia Gibney.

Another great Lottie Parker adventure!

Patricia Gibney has written another great Lottie Parker story. I love how the characters have evolved through the books and how the pieces slowly come together. Michele Moran is a fantastic narrator and really brings the story alive.

Too much back story

this book does not pick up until chapter 35. The author was so busy trying to catch up the new readers she forgot to mention anything interesting or new until chapter 35..

Fabulous!

Lottie is not as acerbic in this book. She puts more effort into her family - although her job is still important to her. And she HAS to concentrate on her family when they play a major part in this story.

Excellent narration by Michele Moran.

Please let us have more Lottie Parker books.

Six Might Be Enough

I was so excited to see that this had been released. The characters in this series are so vivid and multi-dimensional, and the previous books have been enjoyable - even if sometimes I would like to shake Lottie. I was hopeful at the beginning as it seemed that Lottie is off the bottle and pills and might make better choices. Not so much. Gibney has transitioned Lottie from simply flawed like the rest of us to downright unlikable and frankly, stupid, at times. The storyline didn't flow in this one like the previous five. The not-very-startling reveal of the killer was just made silly by the motive for the crimes. Lottie's treatment of Boyd at the end actually made me angry, and her kids are placed in mortal danger in every book. While the girls were missing, there was too much playful banter between her and Boyd. It was just unrealistic. This seemed like the perfect storyline for Lottie to find a good balance at work and home, but instead Gibney has turned her into a character that I'm not sure I care about anymore, and that is indeed a bummer!!

Have always enjoyed the Lottie Parker books... but

This book seemed to just be a copy cat of previous storylines. I was very disappointed.

Not the best

I have enjoyed all of the last five books but this didn't impress. I found it rather repetitive especially near the ending. The narrator was excellent.

Recording could be better

I do enjoy ‘this series of books, although they are getting a little bit repetitive with one of Lotti’s family being put in danger.
The main issue I had with the recording is that the different chapters or parts ran into each other with no obvious break. So you were with one character and then you with another scene without a break making it difficult to follow at times.

Enthralling Story

The pace of all Patricia Gibney’s Lottie Parker series are just right. This one is no exception.

You are led down towards the reveal of whodunnit, getting there before Lottie. I love the ‘will they, won’t, they’ relationship of Lottie and Boyd. Your heart aches for Kirby.

I’ve never felt the books are too long. Pitch perfect.

Excellent book in a great series

I was eagerly looking forward to another Lottie story and was not disappointed. The way the story unfolded made it hard to put the book down to work and sleep. I also like the narrator for these books. She reads well and there are no double ups or hesitations. Must get the next one in the series.

Dissapointing

I have listened to all 6 Lottie Parker / Patricia Gicney books and i have to say i wont listen to any more. Is Lottie Parker ever happy? Is McMann ever happy? I found this book particularly trying and hard to finish. Shame

Finally a proposal

I enjoyed this latest book however it is becoming a little frustrating that Lottie’s family is still taking centre stage and other characters are not being developed. Boyd and Lottie!!

Fantastic narration, so-so story

Michele Moran is riveting as ever in this addition to the Lottie Parker saga.
The storyline has progressively become so-so.

Will think twice before purchasing another book, even though I am very emotionally invested in the life of Lottie Parker.
