About No Safe Place
There’s nothing more dangerous than a familiar face…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 ten 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 page.

No Safe Place Review
Very hard to put down! Characters are well written !!
This book is a fantastic continuation of Lottie which I truly enjoyed and waiting for the next and hopefully many more to come. Awesome writing team! Thank you
I love the Lottie Parker series of books. They remind me of Tami Hoag books i once read. Real page turner books. Really enjoying reading all of them. More please!!!
Well written with relatable characters. Good story line with a nice twist in the tale at the conclusion.
Quite the thriller. Lots of ups and downs and twists and turns but well written so keeps you turning the pages.
If have read the other books of the series continue to do so. Great read didnt take me long to finish this book 😉
Well written as all of her books are. Enough multiple suspense stories so intertwined one couldn’t unravel them until the end and dhe still included her unadmited infatuation with Boyd.
This is the 4 th book I have read in the Lottie Parker series.Loved all of them .This one I read in 2 days. Super . Couldnt put it down.Waiting for the next book to come out. Please keep them coming.
Can’t wait for the next book by this author. Have loved all her books so far
This book has more twists and turns than expected. Suspenseful to the very end. Lottie Parker is a laid back detective but was kept on her toes throughout No Safe Place.
I loved all four books in the Lottie Parker series, I sure hope that there are many more to come.
Boy I didn’t know where this book was going. Couldn’t quite get who did it – it was very suspenseful to the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it. 😎
I have enjoyed all the books please keep them coming.
I loved reading tbis book. it kept me in zuspense till the end
Yet another fantastic novel in the DI Lottie Parker series. Full of twists and turns, keeps you guessing until the end & leaves you wanting more.
Can not wait for the next book. have read all 4 books.
I have so enjoyed this series of books-love love love Lottie, her family and team.
Like the previous three books this was absolutely wonderful and kept me enthralled from start to finish, so there for I am eagerly awaiting book number five. Thank you for being a wonderful author. Regards Carol Rice
This thriller gripped me from the beginning! Totally unexpected twist that fooled me, brilliant read.
This is the fourth book I have read about Lottie and Boyd. I could not put it down until finished. Patricia Gibney stories are well written and keeps you guessing right to the end who is the guilty person.
The main character has me hooked!! Cant wait to see the next book….
This case is becoming personal to Boyd, when his sister Grace makes a new friend, Mollie, on the train to Dublin and this new friend disappears. Grace is not giving up and is trying to find out what happened to Molli. Then Grace disappears too and an old unsolved disappearance may be the only lead to all missing girls. DI Lotti Parker is not a very likable or easy person. Always on the verge to a break down, drinking to much and her children often have to fend for themselves. So, why is it I like these books about her so much+ maybe it’s because Lotti Parker has flaws some a real person. She’s not some superhero, saving the day, raising her kids and always smiling. The only thing I really hope for, is that she will find a way to see how good Boyd is for her and stop fighting him. I highly recommend the DI Lotti Parker series! I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture!
Nothing like finding a body in a grave when you get ready to lower a casket into an already occupied grave. Such is the beginning of this book. There’s nothing greater than receiving a free book from #NetGalley and finding what you think might be your new favorite author until you are so into the story that you buy the first one in the series while you are still reading book four. That is until you later find out that you already have that book! Well I know a great writer when I read a great book and obviously I love Patricia Gibney. Now I just have to get books 2 and 3. No Safe Place is nonstop action from beginning to end and the stars of the show are DI Lottie Parker and DS Boyd who have a little thing going. You really get into the heart of the characters and they end up like being part of your family with all their trials and triumphs. The main theme is about girls going missing which also coincides with the ten year anniversary of another young girl who went missing and the case was never resolved – no body or bones were ever found. The bad guys are really bad and would be people you would never want to meet anywhere even with other people around. This is truly a great book that you hate coming to the end but I feel there will be more coming in this series. A great job Patricia Gibney!
No Safe Place by Patricia Gibney D.I. Lottie Parker #4 Polished police procedural set in small town Ireland stars D.I. Lottie Parker in her fourth case. Coming into this series on this book was okay but I did find mentions of events and people that must have been important in previous books. If given the chance I believe reading previous books would be beneficial though not essential. Lottie: a widow with three teenage children – one an unwed mother is a detective inspector that is perhaps not the best loved member of her team but does seem to get the job done. She is somewhat acerbic, pithy and has a temper. I picked up that she may have issues with alcohol and prescription drugs and is still mourning the loss of her husband while not on good terms with many of her family members…including her mother. This story started out with a woman running for her life and the story didn’t slow down till the end. Young women abducted and treated badly but why? Why were some killed? What about the case that occurred similarly ten years before? And the travelers…how did they fit in? The gravedigger and the priest and the people on the train and…well…so many threads to follow but follow them I did. And then, why were some women being beaten up and even killed in a side story that proved related? This was a complex story with many characters, subplots, red herrings, work and family related issues and…well…all I can say is “well done!”. I may not LOVE Lottie but I do admire her. I think the interim boss she has to deal with is a pain in the derriere and hope he won’t be there long. There is a hook at the end of the book that infers Lottie may have a relative from the USA coming to visit – wonder what that will be about and also wonder if she and Boyd will find themselves in a relationship eventually. Did I like this book? Yes Would I like to read more books by this author/in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars
