What’s the Story
The boy’s body was so white it was almost transparent. But that’s not what caused the nausea to rise up her throat. He was so young. His body was unmarked, surrounded by a halo of plucked wildflowers.
One hot summer evening, eleven-year-old Mikey Driscoll is on the way home from playing with friends. Two days later, his body is discovered on a bed of wildflowers by some local teenagers.
The case is assigned to Detective Lottie Parker and this time it’s personal. The victim was a close friend of her son, Sean, from the run-down Munbally estate on the other side of town. Sean tells his mother Mikey was behaving normally before he died, but Lottie can’t help but feel that her son is keeping something from her…
Then days later, another boy is found dead, surrounded by wild flowers next to beautiful Ladystown Lake.
On the hunt for a twisted individual with a terrifying calling card, Lottie must uncover the web of secrets within Mikey’s circle of friends. Someone is hiding something but who are they protecting and can Lottie find out before it’s too late? Lottie is desperate to catch the killer before he strikes again because this time her own child could be in terrible danger…
If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Abbott, you’ll love the latest heart-stopping thriller from Patricia Gibney. Tell Nobody will keep you guessing until the very last page.
Well who would have thought it, Book Five with DI Lottie Parker. It seems an age since I tread the pages with Parker as she delves into the murky, dark depths of the criminal world. What I have noticed lately is that every ballsy women author I have read of late is on a crusade to capture the much desired Orange Best Seller Tag on Amazon. I have no doubt that Tell Nobody is going to be up there with the rest as Patricia Gibney has nailed it once again.
Book Five, Tell Nobody, no holds barred Patricia. The opening just snatches your breath away before you have a chance to absorb the true realism of what has transpired, leaving you floundering, clinging to the small hope it was all a terrible mistake, that it never happened, only for Patricia to drag you further into the depths of a depraved serial killer’s mind. Just the way I like it.
I just love catching up with Lottie, even though her family dynamics are dysfunctional, her private life away to pot, the hostility she presses upon her superiors and the general antagonistic attitude which exudes from Lottie, each part becomes the Lottie Parker we know and love.
In Tell Nobody we have an assortment of characters old and new, each with their own secrets and lies, hiding from their own lives, but the predator, the serial killer is hiding in plain sight. Can Lottie and her team apprehend the serial killer before another is killed.
Tell Nobody is well paced, the trips and triggers well spaced out, the plot was amazing but tough to read especially if quite an emotionally centred person, like I am at present. For all I did become quite emotionally embroiled in some of the situations, I dare you to be a hard heart and not become emotionally charged by the heart achingly, gut wrenching scenarios.
My thanks go out to Bookouture, Patricia Gibney and Kim Nash for the advanced readers copy of Tell Nobody. It has been my pleasure to be part of the Blog Blitz on publication day, thanks for letting me have a spot Kim.
