Publisher's Summary

An absolutely addictive mystery thriller with a brilliant twist 

"She shivered, though the kitchen was warm. Icicles of foreboding trickled down her spine. With trembling hands she whipped back her hair at the nape of her neck. As she turned away from the window, she missed the shadow passing by."

One dark winter’s morning, bride-to-be Cara Dunne is found hanging in her home, dressed in her wedding dress, with a lock of hair removed. Detective Lottie Parker is first on the scene. Looking at Cara’s bruised and battered body, she wonders who could have hated her enough to kill her at the happiest time of her life. 

The case takes a darker turn that afternoon with another shocking discovery - the broken body of a second young woman, pushed from the roof of the hospital where she worked. Fiona Heffernan was also due to be married, and her body is clad in a wedding dress, a lock of her hair cut off. 

The killings seem so personal that Lottie is convinced the girls have been killed by someone they knew. When she goes to break the news to Fiona’s family, she’s on the alert for anything suspicious. But then she makes a discovery that causes her blood to run cold - Fiona’s eight-year-old daughter Lily didn’t return home from her dance recital that afternoon. Terrified that Lily will be the next victim of a twisted and dangerous individual, Lottie takes the case into her own hands, risking her life when she comes face-to-face with the killer....

If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni, and Rachel Caine, you’ll be hooked by this heart-stopping thriller from Patricia Gibney. Broken Souls will keep you guessing!

WOW!

Of course I was going to LOVE Broken Souls, because I LOVE Lottie Parker and I LOVE Patricia Gibney's writing!
This book was absolutely AMAZING! I HAD no idea who the perpetrator was until nearly the very end! I love going clear through a book not knowing! :) Of course Book 6 was left on a MAJOR cliffhanger and now so was Book 7. Things are just getting more and more complex for Lottie and the gang! I can't wait for Book 8!!!

Outstanding

I was a little disappointed in book 6 for there were so many repeats and catch up non readers I almost set it aside. Book 7 had me finish it in 12 straight hours. Could not have put it down for a second. I love Boyd and I hope to hear about him in book 8.

LOTTIE'S BACK AND ANOTHER WINNER!!!!!!!!!

This was a great addition to the Lottie Parker series. I loved the story and Michele Moran's narration just simply adds to the overall enjoyment of the listening experience. It's always a pleasure when an author finds a good narrator and retains her/him throughout the series. It truly enhances the writing talents of a good author. I'm a big fan of the Patricia Gibney/Michele Moran team. I'm looking forward to the next release in the series!

enjoyed others in series more.

i have reqlly enjoyed this series but this was maybe my least favorite so far. it seemed like some characters, like Kirby, were under-developed and the characters in the crime were sort of difficult to follow, again because they didnt seem to be as well thought put as in prior books.

Mixed review

Good story line and mix of characters but this author has a seriously frustrating need to string things out much longer than is required to hold the readers interest or maintain suspense.

Just answer the question!

I’m starting to think thru Gibney’s Lottie Parker series that being a officer in the Guarda is the most exasperating job in the world. Absolutely infuriating trying to get any question answered.

Story was on par with previous books in the series.

Not the best in the series

The story started promisingly but I found it rather tedious with much repetitive language and phrases. not the best for me but the narrator is still fantastic.

Another great Lottie Parker book

Kept me guessing and Lottie made less crazy assumptions than in previous novels.

The family are moving on but poor old Ragmullin is once again under the grips of a broken soul who is wreaking havoc. A really easy on the ear listen.
