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.

Another great crime drama

I can't get enough of Detective Lottie Parker.
Like the previous books, this is a great story with a blend of likeable and detestable characters.
Each book is great for long journeys or for when you're lounging by the pool during your summer holidays

Terrible

I read this author’s first book which was okay. This, her second is awful. I will be returning it and will not read any more in the series.

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.

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!

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, I'm Disappointed

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only to faithful followers of the series

Would you recommend No Safe Place to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I had trouble relating to Lottie in this book, I doubt a reader new to the series would get through book four.

Was No Safe Place worth the listening time?

For the narration and the basic plot, yes.

Any additional comments?

Lottie, if we were friends I'd be sitting you down and telling you to shape up. Gone is the somewhat flawed but well-intentioned protagonist. You're wallowing in bad habits, making no attempt to move yourself forward. You're randomly rude and mean to other characters, coming off as abrasive and stubborn rather than independent. Please seek counselling from Ms. Gibney before Book Five comes out.

Another winner!

I have become a big fan of Patricia Gibney's mystery thrillers! In my last review of a book in this series I forgot to say that the narrator, Michele Moran, is not only the perfect narrator for this series, but she is perfection itself as far as narrators go. What a pleasure to listen to her. On to the next book in this series.

Lottie Lottie

I love the Stories, but Laurie is so screwed up. I do find it hard to connect with her because she’s so confused, uninformed, and mean. So I’ll keep listening and hope she gets better.

Patricia Gibney! I honestly do not know how you have done it. You’re writing style and your characters are so amazing I can never put your books down. I love that Michele Moran narrates for your books! She is exactly what I think that Lottie Parker would sound like. I love that you put a piece of yourself in your writing and I think that this is why your novels are always so amazing.

Great Series! Great writing!

I have found my favorite new author! I have zipped right through the first 4 books in this series. Always a twist and keeps you thinking! Fantastic narration, I have looked for more books with this narrator. She is wonderful at making you feel as though you are there.
