Accused of grassing up a fellow officer and driven brutally out of home and job, DI Grace Fisher is thankful to survive some dark times and find haven with the Major Investigation Team in Essex. Any hopes of a quiet start to her new life are dashed by the discovery of the body of a female student, last seen at a popular bar in Colchester. Grace has her first case. When a second student, also out drinking, is murdered and left grotesquely posed, the case becomes headline news. Someone is leaking disturbing details to a tabloid crime reporter. Is it the killer? Or a detective close to the case?

If you could sum up Good Girls Don't Die in three words, what would they be?

Gripping, and full of ups and downs of the Case. Some real twists and turns, one gets sucked right into the case, and can imagine quite clearly the situation, characters around and the town it all takes place in. Very good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Love this, will definitely listen to another one.

Set on the Western Front, in London and in Paris, My Dear I Wanted to Tell You is a moving and brilliant novel of love, class, and sex in wartime, and how war affects those left behind as well as those who fight.

A killer is murdering Goths with relish - skinning and butchering them. The cops aren’t getting anywhere so Jack Nightingale’s nemesis, Superintendent Chalmers, asks him for help. Nightingale discovers that the murdered Goths had one thing in common: a tattoo connected to the secretive, Satanic, child-sacrificing cult called the Order Of Nine Angles. As Nightingale closes in on the killers, the tables are turned and he finds himself in the firing line, along with his friends and family. The Order will stop at nothing to protect their secrets and Nightingale realises that there is nothing he can do to protect himself.

What made the experience of listening to Lastnight the most enjoyable?

Well I might have more respect for Tattoos than I do after this listen. I enjoyed it, gripping, interesting, characters were good, Narration a little too slow for me, but I did enjoy this book. Easy, catchy and gripping.

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed.

Would you try another book written by Paula Hawkins or narrated by the narrators?

This book did nothing for me... I found the Narrators all boring and bad voices. Nothing to grab me. Would not recommend this.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

no
