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.

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!!

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.

Never again

Note to self: never, never, never again. I feel dirty for accidentally buying this latest atrocity. More details and a spoiler may follow but for now keep away from this terrible series; avoid it like toxic waste. Trust me.

The reader is rather good but she is tainted by association. I hope she was well paid.

Another great case for Lottie Patker

Brilliant series of books; I love the way Lottie's character has developed over the series. Also love the narration, it brings all the subtleties of the Irish dialect to live in the way they're meant to be understood and also brings out the humor that Gibney carefully puts in.

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.
