Publisher's Summary

Something whistling through the door behind her caused her to turn. A shadow spread across the opening. She clasped a hand to her mouth, stilling the fear that was rising. The menacing shadow was followed by a face that sent a cold shiver down her spine….

When the call comes in about Lucy, a 17-year-old girl murdered after the secret party she held in her parents’ home, Detective Lottie Parker is first on the scene. As she picks her way through the smashed glasses and the blood spatter on the perfect cream carpet, she is horrified to see Lucy’s angelic face, silvery-blue eyes forever closed. 

As Lottie breaks the news to Lucy’s heartbroken parents and the devastated partygoers, she discovers that hours before her death Lucy had revealed a terrible secret about her friend Hannah. And when Lottie finds Lucy’s bloodstained clothing hidden in Hannah’s bedroom, she has no option but to bring the shy, frightened girl into custody. 

But Hannah claims to have no memory of the night Lucy died and Lottie begins to question her guilt. Then a 15-year-old boy who also attended the party is pulled from the canal. And as Lottie investigates, she discovers something shocking. Her own son Sean was at the party. Why did he lie to her? Is her beloved child a witness or a suspect...or is he now in the killer’s sights?

If you love Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni, and Rachel Caine, you’ll be hooked by this heart-stopping thriller from Patricia Gibney. The Guilty Girl will have you gripped.

A Big Disappointment

I use to love this series of books but it is time to move on. All her plots now involve her family members. Her family that never matures, never wants more or much from life and are all depressed and traumatized. None of her children want a higher education and or a career. They have no goals, no plans to move out of the house and Lottie is financially supporting her adult children and grandchild. I want to tell Boyd to run as far away from the Parker family for they will only bring you down. The books are now as stagnant as the family Gibney portrays in her books. The plots are absurd as well. I use to be an avid fan and now a disappointed fan.

I love the series

I have listened to the entire series and love the story and the narrator. Lottie frustrates me sometimes but she grew on me. My only complaint is, why is a member of her family always involved in every single crime? How many people live in this city?? And the “coincidences”, like Boyd being in the same place as the victim’s parents. Every book have these crazy coincidences that are not believable. Other than that, I love the series and looking forward to the next one.

I was at the edge of my seat again!

I started reading Patricia’s books years ago. I introduced her books to my friends in America and now we all wait, with anticipation, until the next one comes out! Love these books and Patricia’s personal journey. So inspiring!

Way too slow moving

I found this book to be incredibly boring. It would have been much better at half the length. I cannot recommend it at all.

Continuing an excellent series

I’ve missed Lottie and Boyd and the family and police crew. This was worth waiting for. Even if it was very sad at times.

The narration was excellent as usual.

Another great story by Patricia Gibney.

Patricia Gibney’s books never fail to capture my interest and the narration is spot on with Michele Moran. Detective Lottie Parker is one of my favorite book series.

Finished in a couple of days!

I really do enjoy Lottie Parker, she’s very human and I love her phrase of turn. A slow burner to start but the subject matter is of our age and not to be ignored.
Very well written and made all the better by the narrator. 👏
