Publisher's Summary

Her bare feet stuck to the frost as she ran. She wanted to scream out loud, but she knew he’d find her if she made a noise. As she stopped to listen for his heavy footsteps, she wondered if she would ever make it out alive....

As funeral mourners stand in silence at Ragmullin cemetery, a deafening cry cuts through the air. Lying crumpled at the bottom of an open grave is the bloodied body of a young woman, and Detective Lottie Parker is called in to investigate.

Knowing the body can’t have been there long, Lottie wonders if it could be Elizabeth Bryne, a young woman who vanished without trace just days earlier. And with a new boss who seems to have it in for her, Lottie is under pressure to solve both cases quickly.

As two more women go missing from Ragmullin, Lottie and her team fear there is a serial killer on the loose. And the disappearances are strikingly similar to a cold case from 10 years earlier. Could history be repeating itself?

As journalists begin to interfere with Lottie’s investigation, she fears the killer is about to strike again. Lottie is in a race against time to find the missing women, but the killer is closer than she thinks. Could Lottie be his next target?

If you love Angela Marsons, Robert Bryndza, and Rachel Abbott, you'll love the latest pulse-pounding thriller from Patricia Gibney. No Safe Place will keep you guessing until the very last second.

better than the 2cd book

I really enjoyed this book. A new kind of story that doesn't involve Lottie's family.

Awesome as always!

Loved all the characters! Great twists! Always anticipate the ending, but hate when it does end. Can't wait for the next one!

Tired of Lottie Parker Being Treated like crap

Every book in this series depicted Lottie Parker as a meek little lady that everyone treated like crap. Seriously, why do writers insist on have strong female characters whose male bosses humiliate, degrade, and constantly threatens suspension, demotion, are being fired and every case is solved successfully by that same lowlife chief detective. I mean seriously, the main storylines are great and suspenseful but you disrespect your female audience when, in every novel you allow the heroine to be slammed and cursed for absolutely no reason.

Almost missed this one

I previously listened to the other books in this series and while the stories were good I found the wreck of Lottie too hard to stomach. So I passed this one by for awhile. Thankfully, I decided to give Lottie one more chance...she's still a mess but it seems she may be turning a corner-slowly but hopefully for good.
But read the books in order, just grit your teeth while Lottie focuses so much on her lose that she essentially leaves her children to fend for years.

Lottie Parker - book 4

Love this series, I really like having a smart but flawed female lead. Narration is one of my all time favorites. Keeps me searching for clues and guessing.

It's a family affair

Really enjoy the D.I Parker series but a few things starting to niggle. every story always seems to centre around at least family member off the team which is pretty high odds of actually happening to any unsuspecting police force! lots of murders/crime surrounding the team must surely be moved on and just let Lottie and her team deal with a major incident without a family member dragged in. Please, please move the saga of Boyd and Lottie on really becoming annoying, at least give them a bit more off a solid ground, the on off on off is like being at a traffic island and not sure which exit to take even though you know where your going. All of said the books are really enjoyable, read well and the base line story draws you in. Would recommend them.

a perfect 4th book

this story builds so well on the first three books and really offers a multi layered story that is both intellectually stimulating and very entertaining!

Ah Lottie, you've done it again!

We can all relate to Lottie Parker trying to fit work, family and romance into a busy life, Patricia Gibney writes a human story and manages to put a few twists in there just to keep us guessing.
