Summary

The crime doesn't always fit the punishment.

A life-and-death hostage situation at Barfield High Security prison brings Governor Helen Hewitt back to her old stomping ground. But things have changed at Barfield.

A new, highly dangerous prisoner poses a threat to the peace, and when discord boils over, the prisoners join forces in an audacious escape attempt. As violence erupts among the officers and the inmates, Hewitt must once again restore order. Before it's too late.

Based on the popular TV series starring Janet McTeer, the complete and unabridged Governor series is now available for the first time in audio.

Fabulous

I have just finished listening to the two audios of the Governor series by Lynda La Plante. I have long been a fan of her work and have quite a collection. So time ago I began to listen to her work on Audible. I have to say that I enjoyed them all over again.
Lately, I purchased The Governor and The Governor part 2; never, have I listened to two more thrilling, exciting, audibles. I thoroughly enjoyed them. I highly recommend them. I await eagerly for a part 3!

Could have been better

The storyline was all over the place and ended on a cliffhanger. The first book was a lot better.

okay but not as good as the first governor story.

Lots of characters sometimes hard to follow. not one strong thread. Based on that not sure I'll read the 3rd governor.
