Blog Tour: Tell Nobody - DI Lottie Parker #5 by Patricia Gibney

Today I'm on the blog tour for the fabulous Tell Nobody - DI Lottie Parker #5 by Patricia Gibney*. I just adore this series (and Lottie).

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.  

My thoughts?

I devoured this fast paced read over two days and when I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it!

The body of eleven year old Mikey Driscoll is found by local teenagers. Lottie Parker and the team are immediately on the case. Days later another local boy is found in similar circumstances also surrounded by wild flowers and the team are afraid they have may have a serial killer in their midst.

The team need to quickly find out who is killing these young boys and why. A newborn baby is also found dead by Lottie’s son Sean and his friend Barry.

I liked how things are developing between Lottie and Boyd. Kirby and Gilly also seem to be becoming romantically involved. There is also a stranger from America asking about Lottie who may someone connected with her past.

At home Lottie is counting the days till their new house is ready. Her mother Rose, while generously opening her home to them is seriously doing her head in. She can’t wait to have her own space again.

A late teens girl arrives at the garda station covered in blood and indicating she killed someone. Is she connected to the death of Mikey or what? As ever the pain that is Superintendent MacMahon is still trying to bring Lottie down.

A fast paced and thrilling read with some real heartache within its pages and a killer I never suspected! Brilliant!
