    Murder Mystery - Police Procedural

    Final Betrayal by Patricia Gibney D.I. Lottie Parker #6 Lottie has moved out of her mother’s home into a new abode. She seems happier now that the past has literally been burned up and tangible memories of her past with a spouse now deceased five years all ashes. She has a relationship with a colleague that provides a bit of fun outside work and being a mother and grandmother and she seems to be moving forward with her life. And yet...she still seems a bit at loose ends and unable to commit to much outside the her job on the police force and being a so-so mother. This story has: * a relative from the USA that is still hanging * a new case to be solved * one suspect that is perhaps a patsy * past case threads that might be woven through * bad guys to catch * a murderer or two * and more I have to say this book did not hold my interest quite as much as the previous two in the series I have read and I am not sure exactly why. Here are a few things I wrote down as I read: * too many characters and threads * too busy * unbelievable that a person in maximum security would be let out on a day pass * is it likely that Lottie’s family can be at risk in every story she is in? * is there really only one viable suspect? * why is Lottie unable to express her feelings? * some of the “feelings” and reactions seemed a bit over the top * would the boss truly act as Lottie’s did? I am not sure if there will be more in the series but will say I might try one more book if there is. I feel that Lottie has potential and like the addition made to the team. I feel there is potential if the next book is one that does not involve her family as potential victims and if she makes progress on a personal level. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Frustratingly Entertaining

    Lottie is one of the most frustrating characters I have ever encountered; she makes bad choices and never seems to learn from the mistakes of past secrecy. This is tempered by her dedication and commitment to her job and her family. It is a bit implausible that she has such a great solve rate but always has superiors trying to take her down. The books are really good but would likely be better if they did not rely so much on the almost cartoonishly incompetent boss plot line and focused more on Lottie’s development as a strong, respected leader with a talented team helping her solve all the murders in Ireland. This writer is talented and getting better with each book.

    A great series, best read in order!

    Final Betrayal – Patricia Gibney This book opens as a young man is released from prison after a 10-year sentence for robbery and assault that culminated in the man’s death from a stroke. Gone, never to be found were the monetary contents of his safe. Finally free, Conor Dowling heads home where is elderly, decrepit mother lives in filth, and makes contact with his old friend Tony. Detective Inspector Lottie Parker is getting ready to move into a new home, and her best friend and colleague Detective Sergeant Mark Boyd is assisting with the move. Meanwhile, two young girls are out on the town for some clubbing, but neither one of them makes it home. The girls are found dead several hours later with Lottie & Mark being tasked with the investigation. Lottie’s half-sister Bernie remains institutionalized after a brutal murder spree and manages to manipulate another sibling to arrange a day pass for her. She immediately disables her sibling, escapes from his supervision, and begins to stalk Lottie and her family. As the investigation continues, Conor’s name comes up as a potential suspect in the missing girl’s murder, and one of them had testified against him in the trial that landed him in prison. But his alibi is solid. Then, two more girls disappear…and soon, Lottie’s girls are missing as well… This was a good book – the storylines, seeming random, kept me on my toes as I tried to ascertain who was responsible for what…I did not find any of the characters particularly likeable, (Lottie needs more depth, I think) but I suspect as I read the others in the series I’ll gain a lot more insight into who they are and what makes them tick. I absolutely believe this series would be best read in order – as a standalone, I had to make a lot of inferences as to the past events that lead to this installment - Bernie for example. All in all, a good book, kept me turning the pages, and I was strangely disappointed that Conor wasn’t the ‘good boy done wrong’ that I thought he was… I will definitely be looking to read the remainder of this series! I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.
